Still retaining its code name from last year, Microsoft unveiled the specs of its next generation gaming console. Slated to arrive in the fall of 2020 along with Halo Infinite, the Microsoft Project Scarlett touts the powerful hardware it thinks it needs to become a bestseller. The new console delivers up to four times the power of the Xbox One X via its custom-designed CPU and GDDR6 RAM that promises up to 120 fps.
Microsoft notes the console will support 8K gaming, ray tracing, and a variable refresh rate. A breakthrough solid state drive will be used as virtual RAM to improve performance by 40 times over existing SSDs, so games will load much faster. If you love your existing games and gear, no worries. The new console will support Xbox One games (and four generations of games via backward compatibility), controllers, and accessories.
