According to rumors - the device was called Xbox Scarlett. This is the codename of the project. The console will go on sale as the Xbox Series X. No kidding - the information is official.

Unfortunately, the release will have to wait. Microsoft won't release the Xbox Series X until 2020. Detailed specifications of the product are being withheld. But the design is known.

The device does not resemble its predecessor. The "stuffing" is enclosed in a beautiful rectangular case. Reminiscent of a PC, don't you think? However, horizontal positioning is not forbidden.

No need to worry about performance. Microsoft claims the Xbox Series X is four times more powerful than the Xbox One X. What makes it so?

There is little information about the specs. Reported only about the processor, created by AMD. The chip is based on the architecture Zen 2. Support for ALLM, VRS and hardware ray tracing is announced.

Xbox Series X also offers a fast SSD drive. Forget about slow loading levels. Among other things, integration with cloud services is mentioned.

Special mention should be made of the gadget's quietness. In addition, Microsoft has updated the controller. Xbox Wireless Controller got a "Share" button and an improved crossbar.

If the ads are to be believed, the Xbox Series X can handle 4K. The frequency is high at 60 fps. One of the first games for the device will be Senua's Saga: Hellblade II. The trailer of the future hit is out.

Microsoft will announce the price later.
