Microsoft Xbox 2 aka Project Scorpio

Microsoft’s press conference was one that will go down in history. During this presentation, they confirmed the existence of an Xbox One Slim. This new system has a few new features, but ultimately is the same as an Xbox One.

The final announcement of their show was the one that turned heads. Xbox President Phil Spencer took the stage and teased a new console. He promised that this will be “the most powerful console ever made.” A few specs were mentioned like 8 CPU cores, true 4K resolution, and VR compatibility.

Phil Spencer said this new console is meant to remove the barriers that exist between innovation and technology. He promised it would contain the most powerful graphics processor every put into a console. It certainly sounds impressive, and it’s clear that Microsoft is tired of being looked down upon as having the inferior machine. After the teaser and release date of holiday 2017, the experts at digital foundry went to work putting together their own potential Project Scorpio specs.

Here’s what they came up with:

  • CPU: Eight cores of overclocked Jaguar processors from AMD or equivalent
  • GPU: 56/60 GCN compute units at 800-850MHz
  • RAM: 12GB of GDDR with 320GB/s bandwidth or more

Impressive to be certain, but as they delved into these specs, it became clear that either Microsoft is going to back down on some of their promises, or they have the means to get more power out of this hardware than a PC equivalent.

For starters, the 6 teraflops of processing power aren’t enough to power a native 4K experience.

Since the PS4 Neo development kits have already gone out, Sony can’t change the specs drastically on their upgraded PS4 console. They could potentially overclock the system’s processor, but going on rumors of the system’s specs, it’s not out of the question to say that Project Scorpio will indeed be more powerful than PS4 Neo.


Even if that’s the case, Sony has such a huge lead this generation, they CAN afford a few years to polish up the PS5 and come out with something that crushes Microsoft’s console.

It has been said that competition is healthy for the consumer because it forces competing manufacturers and developers to innovate and push the envelope. This has been seen time and time again in the continued console wars. The PlayStation 5 will undoubtedly continue Sony’s steadfast focus on creating rich and immersive gaming experiences. Movies and music will follow, but gaming will always remain their focus.

Even so, the competition between these two titans of the industry will forever push the limits of what it means to be a gamer, and we can all agree that is, in and of itself, a victory for all.
