Project Scorpio Tech specs reveled!


In an unprecedented move Microsoft invited Digital Foundry to their Redmond campus to preview tech specs of their up and coming console code named project Scorpio. What is also remarkable is that the project is ahead of schedule and could be released as soon as 6 months from now. Though honestly the xbox one was thrown together in a “oh crude Sony released a new console? We need something now!” Moving on. Performance wise it was able to run Forza Motorsports in native 4k and at 60 frames per second. Here’s how the specs breakdown.

Project Scorpio Xbox One PS4 Pro
CPU Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz Eight custom Jaguar cores clocked at 1.75GHz Eight Jaguar cores clocked at 2.1GHz
GPU 40 customised compute units at 1172MHz 12 GCN compute units at 853MHz (Xbox One S: 914MHz) 36 improved GCN compute units at 911MHz
Memory Bandwidth 326GB/s DDR3: 68GB/s, ESRAM at max 204GB/s (Xbox One S: 219GB/s) 218GB/s
Hard Drive 1TB 2.5-inch 500GB/1TB/2TB 2.5-inch 1TB 2.5-inch

I can’t wait to see when this will release. From what I am hearing they are really putting a lot of time, effort, and passion into this project and I can’t wait to see the results.


Game on!
