The holiday season is coming up rather quickly seeing as were already almost halfway though 2017, and that means were coming ever so close to the big Xbox Scorpio release! Xbox Scorpio is Microsofts most ambitious video game console venture ever. It will launch with a 6 teraflop gpu, and will have 12 gigs of ram and will be able to push a native 4K resoluation. To put this in perspective Sony’s current 4K gaming machine, the PS4 Pro has a 4.2 teraflop gpu and has 8 gigs of ram.
Today Microsoft is sheding more light on the Xbox Scorpio dev kit. The dev kit will come with a slightly faster gpu and double the ram, because its easier for a developer to scale down a games visual fidelity than it is to scale it up. The video goes on to explain the uses for the buttons on the front of the Scorpio and the uses the lcd screen has on the front of the kit.
Microsoft is expected to unveil its final Project Scorpio naming, price, and design at the company’s E3 press conference on Sunday. Microsoft’s E3 event will start at 2PM PT / 5PM ET on Sunday June 11th.
