Microsoft is going to change its position in the game. Their new Xbox Scorpio is going to use serious hardware and seamless software. What to expect and when to expect new Xbox Scorpio? Let’s try to find it out.
If you think that this console is somewhere in a distant future, you’re on the wrong planet. In fact Xbox S is not that far from the market. Xbox One Scorpio release date Australia, USA and Europe promises to be on 2017 holiday season. This information has been officially confirmed by the company. However exact Xbox One Scorpio launch date is not disclosed. Previous generation of Xbox came on November. So we can expect to unwrap a new generation of Xbox on the same month next year. However, delays are possible. By the way official production of upcoming console has been announced by Phil Spencer via Twitter.
The latest news regarding the console connected with Xbox OneScorpioo VR capability. As Microsoft representative claimed, Scorpio is VR-capable, but the possibility of introduction of Xbox VR headset in the nearest future is vague. The recent Xbox One Scorpio rumors suggest that there will be exclusive games for console, but there is no details or info available.
There is still no Xbox One Scorpio leak images, only one official image of console’s CPU or GPU unit. We could predict that Scorpio would look much like the Xbox One S.
The new console wars have begun. Sony and Microsoft don’t want to release its consoles every 5-7 years, they want to compete with PC with its hi-end graphics and higher resolution. For instance, both consoles are trying to bring 4K gaming closer to your living room, while there are lots of TV sets with 4K resolution support. Most people think that it’s all useless and companies just want to grab our moneys. No doubt, everyone wants a profit, but they simply forgot that recent decision of bringing enhanced versions of consoles to market helps to make them competitive. Shorter console lifespan will bring progress to game industry, indeed.
Microsoft isn’t generous with news when it comes to price. However, it will be safe to say that new Xbox One will cost as much as $300. The latest version of this console is around $299 today but it’s less powerful than Xbox One Scorpio is going to be. Many analytics set Xbox One Scorpio predicted price go much over $300. This is due to new PS4 Pro which makes competition quite tough on today’s market. Yes, the perfect price for upcoming Xbox could be $299 but there’re reasons to assume that it will rocket up significantly. It’s connected with PS4 Pro again which may cost up to $349 by the next holiday.
The exact Xbox One Scorpio size, dimensions, and tech specs are not officially disclosed.
Microsoft isn’t going to give up that easily. Their new console is said to be very powerful offering numerous opportunities to hardcore gamers. To begin with, they offer 320 GB of memory bandwidth. The console is said to support such resolutions as 4K. It concerns both video and games as well. They are also going to provide access to virtual reality but they haven’t revealed any information how they’re going to do it. One of the most exciting things about Xbox One Scorpio is six teraflops of graphics processing performance. In other words, this console is likely to six trillion flops. Not bad, is it? It’s still unknown which video card is going to be used. Nevertheless, basing on expectations of six trillion flops we can expect nothing less than Nvidia GTX 1080. This video card is capable of doing 8.9 teraflops. However, Microsoft is going to reveal more information closer to the release date. So far we can expect a really tough competition between Xbox One Scorpio and PS4 Pro which means a lot of exciting games are on the way. Isn’t it wonderful?
