AMD’s Zen 2 processor to power next Xbox

Microsoft's next-generation Xbox (codename Project Scarlett) will feature a custom version of AMD’s latest Zen 2 processing unit and  Radeon RDNA graphics architecture along with high bandwidth GDDR6 system memory. The console will also leverage a customized SSD that operates "almost like DRAM." 

Microsoft is promising 8K resolution and 120-frames-per-second visuals.

Target release date is late 2020.
