Xbox Scarlett Will Use Zen 2 and AMD Next-Gen GPU Technology, Targeting 4K/60 FPS

Microsoft insider Brad Sams is reporting that Microsoft’s next Xbox console, codenamed "Scarlett," will feature Zen 2 and AMD’s next-generation GPU technology. The hardware will purportedly be capable of running games in 4K at 60 FPS. If previous reports hold true, "Scarlett" will be joined by additional, weaker versions of the console that would run titles via the cloud.

All of this information has not been confirmed officially, so we have to take it with a grain of salt for the time being. If the console is indeed coming in 2020, we will finally hear more about it sometime next year, possibly at E3 2019; after all, Microsoft already announced the Xbox One X console a year and a half before it actually shipped.
