Microsoft Reveals Specifications of 4K-version Xbox One

Published by


Yes, that would be Project Scorpio. Microsoft has published the specifications of the 4K version of Xbox One. The console was being developed under the name Project Scorpio.

The announcement was made through the website Eurogamer. The New Xbox One will get a custom processor with eight cores clocked at 2.3 GHz. The regular Xbox One also has eight cores, but clocked at 1.75 GHz. PlayStation 4 Pro has an equal amount of processor cores clocked at 2.1 GHz. The new SocC will bring Project Scorpio 6 teraflops, in comparison, the 4K-version competitor PlayStation 4 can handle 4.2 teraflops.

The graphics processor will be faster as well, 1172 MHz, over 853 MHz in the Xbox One. MHz means nothing unless what GPU power is under that hood of course. Details lack aside from 40 Compute cores, Project Scorpio does have a custom GPU that has been designed from the ground up and is paired with 12GB GDDR5 memory andthus that eight-core CPU.

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

Scorpio has a larger processor (the most expensive single part of any console), 4GB more memory, a faster hard drive, a UHD Blu-ray drive and a state-of-the-art cooling solution. All of these add cumulatively to the bill of materials and if I had to guess - and I'll stress that this isn't based on anything I might have heard on my visit - Project Scorpio is going to cost in the region of $499.
