Microsoft reveals final specs of Xbox Project Scorpio

Microsoft has revealed more details about its next gen Xbox codenamed Project Scorpio, which it touts to be the "most powerful console" ever, a crown that is currently held by Sony's PS4 Pro.

Project Scorpio will run at six TeraFlops of graphics processing power to render 4K graphics at 60fps, which is more than PlayStation 4 Pro's 4.2 teraflops, or the first gen Xbox's 1.23 teraflops. For the unknown, Teraflops allows the console to runs games at higher resolutions with better frame-rates.

The performance of Project Scorpio will be handled by an octa-core processor with eight custom x86 cores running at 2.3GHz, a Microsoft's custom GPU engine  with 40 customized compute units clocked at 1172MHz that is higher than PS4 Pro's 911MHz and Xbox One's 853MHz. Xbox Scorpio's x86 cores is said to be 31 percent faster than the Xbox One’s Jaguar cores.

Also Microsoft will be sticking to the AMD's Jaguar based processor, and not the new Ryzen, which many had hoped for.

The console will pack 12GB of GDDR5 RAM (PS4 Pro has 8GB) and will have a bandwidth of 326GB/s. It will come with 1TB HDD, same as Xbox One and PS4 Pro.  Like PS4 Pro, it will be capable of running 4K-native HDR games like PS4 Pro and support higher-res virtual reality.

Project Scorpio will also feature an HDMI port like Xbox One S, and will not have dedicated Kinect port. It will also get a 4K Ultra HD Blue-ray optical drive. To keep the system cool, it will have vapor-chamber cooling system inside, a cooling technology used in high-end PCs.

All this will be packed into a 'compact' system, which will include a integrated power supply system.
