Take a look at Xbox’s latest member — Project Scarlett!

This year’s E3 conference is a big one for Microsoft with Playstation out of the picture. Following the numerous new titles announced for the Xbox, Microsoft topped it all off with the reveal of Project Scarlett, the latest console in the Xbox series.

Project Scarlett promised several improvements over its predecessor right from the get-go. For instance, the Microsoft team mentioned shorter loading screen times as a result of Scarlett using AMD’s Zen 2/ Navi Processor. The processor is four times more powerful than that of the Xbox One X and can allow for frame rates of up to 120 fps.

Additionally, they revealed that Project Scarlett would also be utilizing a new, custom-built, model of Solid State Drives (SSDs). This would allow the new console to have a performance increase of 40 times, compared to its predecessor. Moreover, Scarlett will also feature hardware accelerated ray tracing and 8k compatability.

Overall, both players and game developers stand to benefit from this new console. Project Scarlet will allow users to be drawn in to any game they play on the new console. Moreover, game developers are given more power than ever to produce their dream game, without being hindered by terrible hardware.
