It seems that Microsoft is determined to beat the pulse of the next console from Sony, we are talking about PlayStation PS4K. Microsoft is working on the so – called Xbox Scorpio, high – performance console, which would be four times more powerful than the current Xbox One.

New 4K Xbox Scorpio Is 1.5 times faster than PlayStation PS4K


According to the available information, the new Microsoft console is expected to be released at the end of 2017. In principle the Xbox Scorpio will have 6 TFLOPs performance, something that would make it 1.5 times faster than Sony’s new upgraded PlayStation Neo (PS4K, PS4.5).

In both consoles, it is known that their goal will leverage its high-end hardware to work the potential of games and videos in 4K. It is quite possible that the Xbox Scorpio re-scale 1080p resolution to 4K instead of having a native 4K resolution and it is also expected that, it will have compatibility with all games on Xbox One.

The new Xbox Scorpio will be sold along with a support for Oculus Rift integrated, aspect developed by Microsoft and Oculus together in order to compete with the PlayStation VR.

It was initially planned that, Microsoft will launch Xbox Scorpio at E3 2017, but due to the imminent announcement of the PS4K from Sony camp, the company seems to have decided to accelerate the process. Now Microsoft will present its next generation console at E3 this year, it will be held on Monday, June 13 at 9:30AM PST.
