If you thought Microsoft’s Xbox One S was all that was in store, you thought wrong! The tech-giant has something big in store coming in 4th quarter of 2017 and most likely to E3 2017!
According to Microsoft, the new console will be the future of Xbox and the most powerful game console ever made. However, there’s a catch, the Scorpio will not get any new titles, but it will be the one classic titles which will be played on new and advanced hardware.
According to Microsoft, gamers will be able to play the same games you can play on an Xbox One or— but some of them faster and at much higher fidelity.
Microsoft claims Project Scorpio can run those same games at ultra high-def 4K resolution at a butter-smooth 60 frames per second.
Compare that to today’s Xbox One, which still struggles to output many games at 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution (1080p). Scorpio is kind of like sticking a new PC video card and an extra memory stick into your game console.
In April, some of the specs were revealed by Microsoft and Eurogamer, they were;
- CPU: Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
- GPU: 40 compute units at 1,172MHz
- 12GB of DDR5 RAM running at 6.8GHz (9GB available to developers)
- Memory bandwidth: 326 GBps
- Hard drive: 1 terabyte (2.5-inch)
- Optical drive: 4K UHD Blu-ray
That’s right, the new Project Scorpio will allows gamers to have a system with faster loading time, designed to take advantage for higher resolution. According to the company, the system will be 31% faster CPU and faster hard drive will make load times faster across the board — and existing Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles might see an even bigger benefit.
None needed, old Xbox accessories will work on the Scorpio, according to Microsoft.
