Microsoft Announces Next Console: Project Scarlett

 

  • 8K graphics with ray-tracing.
  • SSD Storage.
  • Arriving Holiday Season 2020.

Microsoft’s Xbox briefing, which truly started off E3 2019, was full of announcements: 60 games were shown off or revealed, along with a few major announcements on the technical side. The show was truly stolen by the announcement of Xbox’s Project Scarlett. This is the next generation of Xbox consoles, and it certainly sounds like it. The reveal video, which you can watch below, touted features people have barely dreamed of.

 

You heard all of that correctly. A new, custom AMD CPU based on Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA Architecture; SSD storage; GDDR6 Ram; up to 120 FPS; 8K graphics with ray-tracing. All of that is, without a doubt, absolute f*cking wild. And that’s not all. We also got word that the next game in the Halo franchise, Halo: Infinite, will be a launch title on Project Scarlett.

Oh, and one more thing: Project Scarlett (Whatever they decide to actually call it, will launch Holiday 2020, a little under a year and a half away.

Will this be a fatal case of failed E3 promises, or will Project Scarlett give the yet to be properly announced PlayStation 5, which touted a lot of similar specs, a run for its money?
