Microsoft in the event Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles announces Scarlett, the next generation of Xbox video game console, four times faster than the current version. This should happen in the 2020 holiday season. The device will have real-time ray tracing and will support up to 120 frames per second. It will have GDDR6 memory, a processor based on Zen 2 architecture and AMD's GPU Navi. It will contain SSDs, so you do not have to wait for screens to load.
The company promises that the new Xbox will be "four times more powerful than the Xbox One X". It also promises backward compatibility with existing games as well as games on different devices. Microsoft knows that its hardware must be competitive with Sony. The Japanese company recently described the technology behind the PlayStation 5, but said that this year is not expected to launch a new console.
In addition, Microsoft also must face competition in the form of Google Stage. This requires the purchase of a $ 70 driver and a monthly subscription of $ 10 for a cloud gaming service. Microsoft will exclusively have a digital gaming console that should be cheaper.
