Xbox Project Scarlett Will Be Four Times More Powerful Than The Xbox One X, Launching Holiday 2020

Xbox big cheese Phil Spencer has revealed during Xbox’s E3 2019 conference that the new Xbox console, codenamed Project Scarlett, will be four times more powerful than the company’s previous most powerful Xbox One X console.

That’s a lot of power.

Featuring an SSD, Xbox console architects will aim to deliver minimal loading times with unprecedented console game performance, including Ray Tracing, never before seen framerates on consoles (hello 120fps), 8K resolutions and variable refresh rates (FreeSync).

Spencer also revealed that the console would be launching during the holiday period in 2020. Furthermore, Halo Infinite will be a next-gen Xbox console launch title.
