"Ray-Tracing Graphics"

This is an advanced method of rendering images, according to The Verge. TechRadar says that ray-tracing will allow games to better imitate light and shadow.

Audio will be greatly improved

Ladbible reports that the new console will feature "3D audio" with a "new AMD CPU." This will reportedly allow for a more immersive gaming experience.

It will not be available this year
