Considering we have insiders on the other side of the fence saying that Xbox Scarlett is the more powerful of the two, I have my doubts. It's starting to look like neither batch of insiders has any actual clue what the final specs are.

One thing is for sure. MS knows they are starting in a weaker position since PS4 won this generation, I highly doubt that they will let Sony have the power advantage over them, they saw what happened to XB1 even when it was $100 cheaper than PS4 at some points during the generation, they know now that alot of people go with the platform with the best quality versions of multiplats at the start of the gen. I suspect they will design a powerful Scarlett and sell it at a loss early gen if need be in order to prevent that from happening again. MS literally said in interviews at E3 that they designed Scarlett to "hopefully" be more powerful than PS5.
