Microsoft's Project Scarlett to use Zen 2 and next-gen Radeon processors

Scarlett is rumoured to arrive in 2020.



Read more about Microsoft's Project Scarlett allegedly using AMD's Zen 2 silicon.

Impressive if true.

Nothing different than the rumors for PS5 so not that impressive I'd say. Especially since the guy claims there will be less to differentiate between consoles next gen

Not sure he realizes how both Xbox one and PS4 are virtually identical in specs. The difference in visual quality was 960p vs 1080p. Doesn't get much closer.. only unless they use the same hardware


Zen 2 alone will be a massive improvement in power. We would probably more than double even triple our processing power. Pair that with a 1070/Vega 56 class GPU in 2020 for either console and it'd be damn impressive and not all that much money

Yeah, console graphics differentiation isn't really that big. Some games play smoother on the new Xbox, but generally they're very similar.

I'm very excited for this console.

I find them all smooth as it'll get considering 30fps. I'm excited for next gen. I hope they'll all be able to easily do 1440p60(or higher). I couldn't care less about 4k, I just want the smoothness of 60. Heck I'd be happy to get a single player game that was 1080p144 (man can dream)

I found with my time on an XboneX there was a massive difference in image quality & visual fidelity in "light"/sports games that could easily hit 4k60, like Rocket League or Forza. While PUBG's framerates back then were often terrible, the native 4K image was also a massive leap up as the long distances in that games meant you were often basically looking out for moving pixel bundles at 1080p. If the CPU is what's holding many games back, I think we could see native [email protected] in a fair few less graphically intensive(Non story heavy single player games) games with only a modest GPU bump if it has 6-8 Zen2 cores, and 1600p checkerboard'ed or similar to 4K otherwise. Even on a 1080p screen, this is more or less the best form of AA you can get, which for me is one of the biggest issues with TV size 1080p gaming(All the zaggies and artefacts).
