Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox: 8K graphics, SSD storage, and ray-tracing for 2020

Jun 9, 2019

Microsoft is revealing the first details about its next-generation Xbox hardware today. Rumors suggested Microsoft would launch two new Xbox consoles in 2020, with one designed to be the equivalent of the current Xbox One X and the other, the Xbox One S. We’re now starting to get more information on the next high-end Xbox console, codenamed Project Scarlett.

Microsoft is including a custom designed CPU based on AMD’s Zen 2 and Radeon RDNA architecture, and it’s promising this new console will be four times more powerful than the Xbox One X. Microsoft is also using fast GDDR6 RAM, that it claims will “usher in resolution and framerates we’ve never seen before.”

This new Project Scarlett console will support 8K gaming, framerates of up to 120fps in games, ray-tracing, and variable refresh rate support. Microsoft is also using an SSD on Project Scarlett. “We’ve created a new generation of SSDs. We’re using the SSD as virtual RAM,” says an Xbox spokesperson in an unveiling video. This should boost performance by 40x over the current generation according to Microsoft, and that will mean games load a lot faster.

Dang next gen systems will be 8k. I think this is going to be a situation where I will be happy I skipped 4k TVs and just wait for 8k.

I guess 8k content will only be for gaming because there barely is 4k content now. I think it's on like 3 channels that you have to pay extra for, some streaming, and UHD's. This isn't as revolutionary as when HD came out and Blu-Rays.
