According to The Verge, this is the youngest version of the Xbox Series X, whose performance mode can be enabled on devkit.
Mention of the Xbox Lockhart, the next-generation unannounced console that is considered the youngest version of the Xbox Series X, was found in the Microsoft guide on developing games for the Xbox, leaked to the network in late June.
The document, according to its text, can be used to create games for Windows 10, Xbox One and “Project Scarlett consoles.” The last name is the codename Xbox Series X and, apparently, at least one more device.
Earlier sources said Project Scarlett was used to refer to two consoles: Anaconda and Lockhart. After the Xbox Series X was shown, it turned out that it was she who could carry the working name of Anaconda, since her motherboard contained an anaconda image.
Microsoft has not officially introduced the console, which is listed as Lockhart. However, the leaked game development manual found almost direct references to it – the document says that on the Project Scarlett devic you can turn on the mode for both Anaconda and Lockhart.
According to The Verge, in Lockhart mode the device uses the performance that the younger version of the Xbox Series X will have. The device will receive at least 7.5 gigabytes of free RAM and about 4 teraflops. For comparison: the Xbox Series X will have 13.5 gigabytes of free RAM and 12 teraflops.
Lockhart, according to The Verge, will be called the Xbox Series S and will provide games in resolutions from 1080p to 1440p. It is expected that Microsoft will release it simultaneously with the Xbox Series X, that is, at the end of 2020.
