Microsoft has just announced Project Scorpio at their Xbox E3 conference. To be clear, this is not the same as the Xbox One S that was announced earlier
. At this point, not a whole lot of information is known, but here are all the details that were at the E3 conference:
- Eight CPU cores
- 6TFLPs of power in the video card
- 320 GB per second of memory bandwidth
- 4k with no sacrifice to performance
- 60fps for many games
- Compatibility with high-end VR devices (Fallout 4 highlighted)
At this point, not much else is known, other than the single killer detail: all Xbox One games and accessories will be compatible. All future games will work on both consoles, not just one or the other. That means Scorpio won't replace your current Xbox One - it's simply a better version for those that can afford it.
Project Scorpio is coming holiday 2017.
