Next to the Xbox One S, Microsoft announced its successor, this is none other than by now known as Project Scorpio, the “Xbox Two” will arrive on Christmas of 2017 promising to be the most powerful console ever and the reason is very simple, the implementation of a new AMD Zen APU with the new AMD Polaris graphics architecture, resulting in a dramatic increase in performance.
Xbox One “Project Scorpio” will have 6 TFLOPS Performance
“The important thing for Scorpio is that it’s a dramatic step up for us in terms of hardware capability,”
“Because as we saw 4K gaming and really high-end VR taking off in the PC space, we wanted to be able to bring that to console. Project Scorpio is actually an Xbox One that can natively run games in 4K and is built with the hardware capabilities to support the high-end VR that you see happening in the PC space today… when it ships it will be the most powerful console ever built.”
According to Phil Spencer, Project Scorpio will be equipped with eight cores APU coupled with 6 Teraflops powered GPU resulting bandwidth of 320 GB / s, so in terms of performance it would be slightly faster than one Radeon RX 480, so we could speculate that Project Scorio is using Radeon RX 480X or Radeon RX 490. Thanks to that power Microsoft says that its console will be able to run games 4K resolution. Now you’ll have to wait for new information to know about Microsoft’s new console.
