Recently the folks over at Gamespot sat down with Colin Penty of Coalition about their newest release, Gears 5. Gears 5 is enjoying quite the media blitz right now. Commercials on almost every channel and ads all over the internet. It’s also a game that is released with support for both current consoles while the developers are keeping an eye on the horizon for the next generation.


Well in adding to the speculation of the specifications for Project Scarlett I would say the cat may be out of the bag in saying that it will have dedicated Ray Tracing cores. We have already heard that it will likely have a custom AMD chip. We have also heard AMD state they are working on their own Ray Tracing solution. When asked about the new hardware Colin would not elaborate but did state being excited about new dedicated Ray Tracing Hardware. Project Scarlett is expected to ship in the holiday 2020 season.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
