Microsoft took the unusual step to announce the Xbox Scorpio over a year before its release. Here are all Project Scorpio details revealed so far.

Microsoft confirmed the rumors about a new powerful Xbox, codename Scorpio at the E3 2016 media event on Monday. Project Scorpio will bring native 4K and VR gaming to the living room.

The Xbox Project Scorpio console has 6 Teraflops of performance compared to 1.31 Teraflops the Xbox One is offering. This means that Scorpio has about 6 times the performance of the Xbox One. Start saving up your money now. Microsoft can talk down the fact that the Xbox One is not going to be outdated once the Xbox Scorpio launches as much as they want. Gaming on the Xbox One will look like crap compared to Scorpio. 

Microsoft said in a video shown (watch below) at the E3 2016 media event that there are no compromises with the Xbox Scorpio in terms of performance. Scorpio will run games at 4K resolution with 60Hz.

Despite the hype around performance Microsoft tries to create, Project Scorpio will be no match to a Windows PC equipped with the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 delivers 9 Teraflops, making it 30% more powerful than the Xbox Scorpio. PCs will always stay ahead of consoles.

The Scorpio will have 8 CPU cores and 320GB/s memory bandwidth.

The Xbox Scorpio will be compatible with the Xbox One games and services. Gamers will not lose anything when they upgrade. The price of the Xbox Scorpio and the release date are not known at this point. It is expected that Microsoft is launching Scorpio in the Fall of 2017.

Sony has announced to reveal the PlayStation Neo. Expect similar performance from the Japanese consumer electronics giant that controls the current video game console generation.

Microsoft introduced the Xbox One S with 4K video capability at the E3. This new smaller Xbox One will go on sale in August.
