Xbox Scarlett Specs Rumor Hints At 12+ Teraflops, Ray Tracing, Dev Kits

Over the last few days, a rumor about Xbox Scarlett specs has popped up on Reddit.

Despite being quickly dubbed as fake or at least very doubt, a verified user on ResetEra has offered a comment about those specs, suggesting some of them could be legit instead.

These are the specifics in question:

  • CPU: Custom 8 cores / 16 Threads Zen 2 CPU
  • GPU: Custom NAVI @12+ teraflops
  • Memory: 16GB GDDR6
  • Storage: 1TB NVMe SSD @ 1+GB/s
  • DirectX Raytracing + MS AI

This is the comment, which among the other things suggest the console is set to have a SSD storage, a new SoC codenamed Anubis and more.

Dev kits are reportedly being delivered after GDC 2019 in March.

  • The hardware is partially true
  • Storage is true
  • Raytracing is true
  • Lockhart is not Streaming box
  • Xbox SoC codename is Anubis, check AMD’s plan
  • MS AI is not a part of the hardware, in other words, never heard of TPU or ASIC like it
  • How to implement Raytracing? See GDC 2019
  • Why they make a decision like Lockhart? See GDC 2019
  • Why there still no DevKit? After GDC 2019

Xbox Scarlett is reportedly coming in 2020, with two different models similarly to what happened with Xbox 360.
