Xbox Lockhart is reportedly not as powerful as the Xbox One X, but this may not matter.
Microsoft is reportedly planning a next-generation two-console strategy. Of course, we have heard of it before, and recent reports indicate that the second console has been under development.
The Xbox Scarlett series of devices will include the most powerful first choice Anaconda and the cheaper diskless console Lockhart. According to the latest report from Windows Central, Anaconda targets 12 teraflops, while Lockhart targets only 4 teraflops.
This puts Lockhart behind the Xbox One X (6TF) in raw power, but as the site points out, these numbers don't tell the whole story. Windows Central believes that both units will use octa-core CPUs running at 3.5GHz, with slightly different clock speeds between them.
Despite the functional differences between the Xbox One X and Lockhart, the latter should perform better in the real world due to its improved architecture and more optimized development tools.
Anaconda is said to have 16GB of memory, of which 3GB will be reserved for the operating system and the rest for games. Microsoft plans to increase the performance of the Xbox One X by four to five times with Anaconda.
It's unclear how big Lockhart's memory pool is, but both consoles will use appropriate NVMe SSD drives, provided they are fast enough to be used as virtual RAM. This is related to what the report shows, but is quite consistent with some recent leaks.
Microsoft will launch Scarlett in the 2020 holidays, and more details about its plans will be announced next year.
