Sony is almost ready to release their PlayStation 4 Pro which has been designed specifically for running 4K resolution and virtual reality games. Microsoft has confirmed that their Xbox Scorpio will be released late next year instead however; the company is still claiming that their upcoming console will be much more powerful than the PS4 Pro.
Both consoles will feature a 8-core processor and it seems like the PlayStation 4 Pro might feature a similar processor to the one seen in the original PS4; there are currently no details about what the Xbox Scorpio will feature.
The GPU for both consoles have been confirmed and there is a clear difference between the two consoles. The PS4 Pro features a 4.12 TFLOPS GPU while the Xbox Scorpio boasts a 6 TFLOP GPU which would certainly make the later console better for most games. According to rumors, the Xbox Scorpio will support both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive VR headsets and the additional GPU power would allow the console to run games on these platforms smoothly.
Its already been confirmed that the PS4 Pro will work with the new PlayStation VR headset and that it will also be capable of running those games in 4K resolution; this headset uses one screen which would allow it to work with a lower GPU console. The Oculus Rift and HTC both use two screen inside of the headset, running these on a console would require more power as a result.
There is a clear difference between the two consoles already and Microsoft has kept most information about their upcoming console quiet; more details about the Xbox Scorpio will be released over the next year as the Holiday 2017 release date approaches.
