Microsoft Xbox Scorpio Specs: 'Integral' Xbox One feature DITCHED

Ahead of the supposed Microsoft briefing in the Electronic Entertainment Expo this June, the company already revealed pertinent information about the specs and features of its upcoming console known as the Xbox Project Scorpio.

Microsoft's Albert Penello talked more about the topic on Twitter.

The Xbox Project Scorpio packs graphical power of six teraflops with a 2.3 GHz clock speed and 12 GB GDDR5 RAM, among other things, compared to the 4.2 teraflops with 2.1 GHz clock speed and 8 GB GDDR5 RAM of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Some were happy that the competition is healthy between Sony and Microsoft, and they are hoping that Sony will be developing a new version that can compare to the latest one.

It now lists all the different parts to the new console, providing a breakdown for fans wanting to know more about the console's hardware.

This makes it roughly four times more powerful than the Xbox One. There will be no Kinect port like the Xbox One S. The power console is expected to hit the market later this year and beat Gamer hearts. Note that the games which I have mentioned are the games which run on Xbox one and Xbox 360.

For those who have invested in a 4K TV for video games, deciding between the Xbox Project Scorpio and the PlayStation 4 Pro will depend on which lineup of games will draw more interest. With Scorpio's power, these games will consistently run at the higher resolution.

Eurogamer together with Digital Foundry provided full specs of the new powerful gaming console.

"Kinect will be compatible with Project Scorpio via the Xbox Kinect Adapter and the experience will not change due to the connection". With such a huge upgrade over the original Xbox One, you might as well treat Scorpio as a brand-new console launch rather than a simple iteration like the Xbox One S, so expect it to be priced accordingly. Aside from that, it will have a 1TB, a 2.5-inch drive for playing plus a 4k Blu-ray UHD drive.
