Rumor: Two next-gen Xbox models to be announced at E3 2019

 

According to the website, the consoles are code-named “Lockhart” and “Anaconda.” Lockhart is a entry level device without a disc drive and focused on digital, while Anaconda is a high-end device priced similarly to Xbox One X at launch.

U doubt power of Anaconda? They will make one 1080p machine and one 4k machine like S and X .

If you mean the console then 'YES'

It's obvious, what else they could do. 

 

But that underlying specs assumptions is lul worthy.

The SSD itself seems to be cost prohibitive in that setup, unless I'm missing something and the prices have crashed.

yes it is a SSD but which one? Mass production helps in reducing price. Also those specs dont make any sense.

Just a 1tb NVme ssd even if mass produced would cost like 10-15k in itself. If it's of a good quality. In that case the price of the concole itself would be like 40-50k

The worst part is that consoles have limited budget to build it, so imagine if they blow $100 on an SSD (that you could change yourself) and then gimped CPU/GPU (that you can't change for 7-8 years) to fit inside $500 build cost.

Option to upgrade HDD should be an official option, and higher rated drives should be sold as official accessories w hi ich can be direct plug and play, that way they can limit costs.

Replacing drives is already easy as sh*t.

They should have the upgradable NVMe slot, and if push comes to shove, populate it with 128GB out of the box for OS etc. This is in addition to current HDD upgrade option. This way if you want to upgrade HDD only, you don't have to wipe the OS and install firmware again and do all the song and dance. Heck even make it hot swappable since OS will be on NVMe. That way you don't have to wait 3 years again for USB disk support.

They will probably have a fusion drive, and offer it in the "pro" model. I don't think an SSD will be useful for data. Is the HDD limited by it's read speed for 4K assets? 

 

On the other hand, they had better give at the very least a fusion drive. After using the Switch, waiting for the PS4 to start up makes it feel like it is from the 90's. Nope, AFAIR the PS1 was faster.
