Inside the Next Xbox: Project Scorpio Tech Revealed

Microsoft has given Eurogamer and Digital Foundry an exclusive look at their 4K Xbox. Final specs include a CPU with eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, a GPU with 40 customized compute units at 1172MHz, and 12GB GDDR5 of memory. You may hit up the article to see how Scorpio compares to the PS4 Pro. In before "Microsoft has no games, so it’s all pointless."

آ…the numbers, as impressive as they are, don't fully represent what the final product aims to deliver. Nor can the number of compute units and teraflops represent the passion the Xbox team has injected into this project. Microsoft has a point to prove. It's not just about performance, it's about pushing the quality of console design to a new level - in all areas. The headlines? Combining smart design with sheer horsepower, Project Scorpio hits the six-teraflop target set for it as E3 last year, thanks to a custom GPU that has been designed from the ground up for optimal performance on today's game engines - and that runs at an unprecedentedly high clock speed for a console.
