Xbox One Project Scorpio specs revealed

Microsoft has revealed the specifications for its upcoming Xbox One hardware upgrade Project Scorpio. According to Digital Foundry, compared to PlayStation 4 Pro, Project Scorpio is a “higher-spec machine in every sense, down to the optical drive that plays the new UHD Blu-ray format.”

Here are the specs compared to the original Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Pro :

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

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
Optical Drive 4K UHD Blu-ray Blu-ray (Xbox One S: 4K UHD) Blu-ray

 

Xbox One Project Scorpio Costs $499

Microsoft didn’t provide Digital Foundry with a price, or an official name nonetheless, but given the specifications, the website predicts it will cost $499.

According to a new report from Digital Foundry, the console’s specs are beyond what we’ve seen in the current console generation. Scorpio was able to run a Forza Motorsport demo at 60 FPS in seemingly native 4K, with graphical settings at an “Xbox One-equivalent” level.

Microsoft itself–says Scorpio will run all Xbox One games “better,” whether they’re patched for the new console or not. This is because the console uses no emulation–Xbox One games will run natively using the system’s internal power

Detailed Specs 

The console contains 1 TB hard drive, as well as 12 GB of GGDR5 memory- That 12 GB is split into two portions: 8 GB is accessible to developers, while 4 GB is reserved for system use. That’s an increase over Xbox One’s 8 GB overall memory, which was split the same way into portions of 5 GB and 3 GB, while GGDR5 represents a speed increase over Xbox One’s DDR3 RAM. – Gamespot

Microsoft is expected to fully unveil Project Scorpio at E3 2017

Scorpio also contains some improvements to Xbox One’s features. Game DVR now lets you capture 4K, 60 FPS, HDR gameplay, and it will also allow you to scrub through captured gameplay to find the best screenshots. According to the website, the demo ran at full 4K resolution and a perfect 60 frames per second. For the original Xbox One to do this at 1080p resolution uses about 90 percent of its power, but Project Scorpio only used 60 to 70 percent of its resources for this higher resolution demo. The graphic settings were then increased to the equivalent of ultra settings on the PC game Forza Motorsport Apex, and “Scorpio still didn’t break a sweat.”
