Microsoft has finally announced Xbox Scarlett at E3 2019: the most powerful console ever made… again.

Teased within an all-new trailer, Scarlett is created by the exact same team behind the already impressive Xbox One X.

Partnered with AMD, Scarlett uses a state-of-the-art SoC created from the ground up for the console. Based on Zen 2/Navi architecture, this upcoming console will be 4 times more powerful than the current Xbox One X.

With GDDR6 memory, the console will support 120fps, variable refresh rate, real-time ray-tracing, next-gen SSD technology and more. The upcoming console will even be able to use the built-in SSD as virtual RAM.

As many had already guessed, Scarlett will launch with the next instalment in the iconic Xbox series: Halo Infinite. Shown running on Scarlett, this upcoming shooter truly looks to be an impressive hardware showcase.

Does Sony’s PS5 have something to worry about?
