New Xbox game console will be weaker than Sony PS4 Pro
This is about the small folk heart model
It was reported a few days ago that Microsoft is still developing a brand new Xbox, hidden behind the codename Lockheart. Such rumours were published last year but were then denied.
Now, it looks like the console actually exists, as new details emerge. The source says that Lockhart will be based on an eight-core processor with a frequency of about 3.5 GHz, and the performance (GPU) will reach 4 TFLOPS. And here are the questions that arise, since the performance of the Xbox One X is 6 TFLOS, and even the PS4 Pro is more powerful – 4.2 TFLoops.
That is, the latest consoles, released several years ago, are more powerful than the new Xbox, which will only be visible by the end of 2020.
In addition, the question arises as to which games will have to be developed, including keeping an account. The existence of a second low power (by the new generation standards) console. However, this is just a reflection.
Speaking of the central Scarlet model, it’s a single CPU with slightly higher frequency, 16GB of RAM, of which 13GB will be available for play, and 12GB of TFLoPS performance. GPU will also receive. That is, the Xbox One will be twice as big as the Xbox One, and compared to the Xbox One S, the new console will be eight times faster!
