The Scorpio is coming later this year. . . .
Last June, Microsoft officially announced plans for an upcoming mid-generation console upgrade, the Scorpio. While the Xbox One’s life-cycle is expected to continue throughout the duration of Xbox Scorpio, Microsoft has shared some key internal specifications that will have most ready to jump out and purchase the necessary 4K compatible equipment.
The high-end device doesn’t have an official name or retail price, but it’s said to have a 30% faster CPU than the current models. Another interesting note, is that the Scorpio will enable performance increase on non-4K screens, which means that Xbox One standard titles will receive performance boots or super sampled resolutions – even on regular HDMI output.
It’s likely that the new console will cost around $499 USD and will also have a standard 4K and 60 frames per second implement on all games. Take a look at the detailed specs below.
• CPU: Eight custom x86 cores
• GPU: 6 teraflops
• RAM: 12GB GDDR5
• Memory bandwidth: 326GB/s
