The PS5 and Xbox Scarlett both boast some seriously impressive hardware – especially for the console market – and though the bulk of the conversation surrounding them has been dominated by how both will be making use of solid state drives, there’s a lot more to be excited about as well. The Xbox Scarlett, for instance, boasts GDDR6 memory in its specs, while both it and the PS5 will be making use of AMD’s Zen 2 processors.

And according to Ricardo Seligmann, producer at Novarama – developers of the co-op action RPG Killsquad – both those things will allow for some tangible improvements in the design and development of games next generation.

Speaking with GamingBolt about the Zen 2 CPU to be found in the PS5 and the next Xbox, Seligmann said that it will lead to “bigger hordes of enemies and smarter” and “more complex foes that will enrich the experience.”

Meanwhile, the Xbox Scarlett’s GDDR6 memory, according to Seligmannn, will allow games to quickly load assets for better and more immersive game worlds, especially when it works in conjunction with the system’s SSD.

“Higher memory bandwidth is very important to us,” he said. “With a higher download speed and together with SSD it allows us to quickly download and quickly load assets, making our worlds bigger and more diverse.”

Novarama’s Killsquad is currently in early access on Steam. Our full interview with Seligmann will be live soon, so stay tuned for the whole thing.
