XBOX Project Scorpio Final Specs Revealed

Greetings Space Cadets, today Microsoft revelled to Digital Foundry the specifications of Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s Xbox One upgrade.

Revealed to Digital Foundry by Microsoft, the Scorpio which still does not have an official name or retail price is, as expected, a more than significant update on the Xbox One. Digital Foundry itself calls it “console hardware design pushed to a new level, with a meticulous focus on appealing to the core gamer.”

Check out the XBOX Project Scorpio Specifications are below:

  • CPU: Eight custom x86 cores
  • GPU: 6 teraflops
  • RAM: 12GB GDDR5
  • Memory bandwidth: 326GB/s
  • Vapour-chamber cooling
  • 1TB Hard Drive

In simpler terms, the CPU is 30% faster than Xbox One’s equivalent, with the GPU 4.6 times more powerful. Its RAM and hard drive read speeds are also improved, meaning 4K resolutions should be easily achieved and maintained.

It’s also definitively more powerful than PS4 Pro, and will allow for performance increases on non-4K screens. That means Xbox One games can receive performance boosts or super sampled resolutions even on a regular HD output.

Let’s take a look at how the consoles stack up.

  Project Scorpio XBOX ONE PS4 Pro
CPU Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz Eight custom Jaguar cores clocked at 1.75GHz Eight Jaguar cores clocked at 2.1GHz
GPU 40 customised compute units at 1172MHz 12 GCN compute units at 853MHz (Xbox One S: 914MHz) 36 improved GCN compute units at 911MHz
Memory Bandwidth 326GB/s DDR3: 68GB/s, ESRAM at max 204GB/s (Xbox One S: 219GB/s) 218GB/s
Hard Drive 1TB 2.5-inch 500GB/1TB/2TB 2.5-inch 1TB 2.5-inch
Optical Drive 4K UHD Blu-ray Blu-ray (Xbox One S: 4K UHD) Blu-ray

Even without specific Scorpio patches, the new console will seemingly run all Xbox One (and 360 backwards compatible) games better than on standard or S hardware, load times, frame rates and resolutions should benefit.

In a stress testing version of Forza 6, the console reportedly displayed the game at 4K/60 frames per second, using around 60-70% of its full power. A regular Xbox One runs the game at 1080p/60 frames per second using 90% of its power.
