Last week Digital Foundry, were invited by Microsoft for an exclusive preview of the next X-Box codename: Scorpio. The specs have been revealed and as consoles go, it’s a BEAST! Scorpio is seemingly running ahead of schedule, to the point where we’re likely six months away from release at least, and we’ve already seen impressive software running beautifully on production silicone as follows:
- CPU: Eight Custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
- GPU: 40 customised compute united at 1172MHz
- Memory: 12GB GDDR5
- Memory Bandwidth: 326GB/s
- HDD: 1tb 2.5-inch
- Optical Drive: 4k UHD Bluray
With this unprecedented reveal to Digital Foundry, this could be the first, as many manufacturers could start opening their Top Secret doors to give more and more bloggers, reviewers or techsperts 😉 opportunities to get the scoop on the latest tech.
Could Project Scorpio be what bring Next-Next Gen into play, or will Sony release something as equally beastly? Only time will tell.
