Microsoft has officially announced the next-generation Xbox game console, code-named Scarlett, which is expected to be available for sale around Christmas next year. The biggest highlight of the new game console is the soaring performance of hardware specifications. Microsoft said that Scarlett is four times more powerful than Xbox One S. For example, support for solid state drives as virtual memory, GDDR6 memory, ray tracing support, up to 8K 120FPS and backward compatibility.

Scarlett will introduce a new benchmark in game console performance, speed and performance, and this new device will be launched in 2020 with the Halo Infinite. The new host uses Microsoft’s custom AMD’s Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture processor with high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory and support for SSD acceleration. Scarlett will provide developers with the performance they need to achieve their creative vision, supporting ray tracing, variable refresh rate, 8K resolution and more.

Using Scarlett will bring a new level of experience to all users, high fidelity, precision, and accuracy that you have never experienced on a game console. Through the Scarlett project, Microsoft will also continue to fulfill its commitment to backward compatibility to ensure that every game accessory and Xbox career will continue to accompany you.
