It'll feature a Zen 2 CPU and Navi GPU for next-gen performance, and is four times as powerful as the Xbox One X, hinting at roughly 24TFLOPs of raw power.

Microsoft's next Xbox, which is now codenamed Project Scarlett, will come with key improvements that will make it far more consistent, Xbox chief Phil Spencer told Gamespot in a recent interview. The company wants to be sure that games load fast and run at 60 fps all the time.

"I think the area that we really want to focus on next generation is frame rate and playability of the games". "Ensuring that the games load incredibly fast, ensuring that the game is running at the highest frame rate possible".

"But then obviously we're going to have our big franchises like Forza, Halo and Sea of Thieves, where those games are designed from the outset to really exist on Xbox, I think that will continue".

This revelation is not new.

Microsoft unveiled its latest console at the big E3 gaming conference in June, Project Scarlett.

The mockups come in three different colorways, all of them looking similar to how Microsoft's Xbox console looks like: there's a black, white and silver option reminiscent of the Xbox Elite controller; a black and white color scheme; and a traditional Xbox white, gray and green color combination.

Additionally, the team is shooting for full backward compatibility. The company has made a significant investment into first-party studios and are focused on new Xbox exclusives in the future. It makes total sense to keep the Minecraft franchise as open and multi-platform as possible.

Moreover - and in a transfer that Spencer says "is slightly bit new" for Microsoft - the console will "respect the compatibility of the controllers you already have".

This vision seems overly ambitious, with many hurdles to overcome. But the Xbox One X, as mighty as it now is, can't run all games at 60fps while hitting 4K; Red Dead Redemption 2 for instance only manages 30fps - no bad feat considering how good it looks on a 4K telly's native resolution. A lot of work still needs to be done, and Sony has not yet played their next-generation hand.
