If you’ve been here for a while, I have mentioned Project Anaconda and Lockhart a lot on the site. Project Anaconda and Lockhart belong to the Project Scarlett family of consoles that is set to begin next year. What we saw yesterday at the end of Microsoft’s E3 conference was a teaser trailer for Project Anaconda, the successor to the Xbox One X which is part of the Project Scarlett. Next generation is finally here, the future has arrived.
Project Scarlett / Anaconda features a new processor, will deliver ray-tracing, it will be four times more powerful than the Xbox One X which in itself is an impressive piece of hardware and will be able to deliver 120 FPS and resolutions up to 8K. Much like Playstation 5 and what Sony has revealed for its next generation console, Project Scarlett will use an SSD which will greatly improve performance and cut loading times in half. Microsoft is even experimenting with the SSD as a virtual ram to speed things up even more.
Project Scarlett / Anaconda will release in Holiday 2020 alongside Halo: Infinite, which is a nice callback to the original Halo game that released alongside the OG Xbox back in 2001.I’m very excited about the future of Xbox and excited for the arrival of next-generation. What are your thoughts on Microsoft announcing Project Scarlett / Anaconda, tell me in the comments down below.
