Project Scorpio is the codename given to the next XBOX system which is capable of 4K gaming.
TL;DR: Specs below, pricing, release date, anything useful to the average consumer still up in the air. So yeah, you probably don’t need to know any of it ;)
As it stands now, the current XBOX One S can play 4K BR disks, but you’re lucky to see a high framerate at even 1080P. The Scorpio specs claim six teraflops, 12GB GDDR5 memory, and a custom Jaguar-based processor. The GPU is clocking at 35%+ over what is currently out there and capable of significantly more than just playing a 4K UHD disc.
During a 4K demo of ForzaTech there was 30-40% CPU to spare, so chances are the Scorpio specs aren’t going to transition to the 8K+ levels.
Scorpio’s also packing vapor chamber cooling, 7.1 sound support, and will have enough horsepower for any VR applications we can plop out for the next couple of years most likely.
