During Gamescom 2019, Aaron Greenberg of Microsoft, the current Xbox general manager, spoke with OXM and explained a bit about what kind of CPU power players can expect from the next console Xbox of the next generation of the company, currently with the code name of the Scarlett Project.
“We feel good about what we have done with the Xbox One X, and the same team that built that is also building the Scarlett Project. What we are seeing today is a great update on the GPU: it can generate in 4K, many other benefits, memory structure, etc. "Greenberg said before commenting on Scarlett's potential CPU levels." For the next generation, I think you'll see a great update on the CPU because we want to make sure you don't have any compromise with frame rate. Yes, we can do 4K, but we can also make frame rates of up to 120. I think that kind of capacity will be something that people don't see today. And then the high-speed instant games that use solid-state drives to allow instant resume, enter the games and be able to play eliminating loading times and loading screens that exist today. That is going to be a big change. ”
While the next Xbox console has more powerful CPUs and GPUs than the current Xbox One family of consoles, it's not exactly a surprise, it's interesting to see what kind of benchmarks Microsoft points to. in terms of gameplay and system features.
Detailed confirmed specifications and an official name for the Scarlett Project are expected to be revealed during E3 2020 with the launch of the console sometime before the end of the year at Holiday 2020. It has now been confirmed that the La Next Xbox will have a physical disk drive and will also be compatible with all current Xbox One controllers. Nor will it be Microsoft's final console.
