When Sony has released the PlayStation 4, it was considered the most powerful gaming system. Microsoft’s Xbox One didn’t have the same success, but the company is hoping to recover the lost ground with its upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, that’s expected to be released in late 2017.
Microsoft hasn’t announced the release date of the Xbox Project Scorpio, but it’s worth waiting for it and we’ll tell you why this console is so special. First of all, it will be more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro and it will support 4K, which will give it an edge over Sony’s new console.
The ability to render visual details at 60 Hz is a big advantage, leading to a smoother and improved gaming experience, although Games Farm CEO Peter Nagy said that the Xbox Project Scorpio’s power will not rely entirely on the GPU.
The console will have 6 teraflops graphical processing power and by the time it will be released, it may no longer be impressive for gamers who will want the gaming system to keep up the pace with the latest games.
So, its rumored specs include a memory bandwidth of 320 GB/s and an octa-core processor. Microsoft might launch it along with a VR headset and it will be compatible with all Xbox One games and accessories for this console.
The Xbox Project Scorpio will be launched in the holiday season of 2017, and it will have a price of $800. The Xbox One S, on the other hand, is much cheaper, costing between $300 and $449, but it targets the general gaming population.
According to reports, the Xbox One S-HDR games that fans will be able to buy for this console are: Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, World of Tanks, Final Fantasy XV, NBA 2K17, Pure Chess Ultra and Hitman.
