Game Console Latest Update: Xbox Scorpio Price, Ps5 Prediction, And Specs Reveal

Microsoft has revealed the specifications of its upcoming Project Scorpio games console. Here are all the details about the Xbox Scorpio specs, release date, price, games and more.

Game Console Latest Update: Xbox Scorpio Specs And Price Revealed

According to Trusted Reviews, the Scorpio uses an eight-core processor, likely from AMD although not officially stated, running at 2.3GHz. Seasoned PC gamers might not think this sound like a lot and indeed it isn't.

However, keep in mind console processors are packed into an incredibly tight space, and more GHz means more heat. This is still a substantial boost over the Xbox One, whose eight cores ran at 1.75GHz.

When it comes to graphics, the Scorpio will get a GPU with 40 compute units running at a seriously impressive 1172MHz. Even more startling is the massive 12GB of GDDR5 memory, which is a handy combination of more and faster memory.

This 12GB will be shared by the whole system. Hence, some of the memory space will be reserved for the CPU with the rest going to the GPU.

As for the price, Isports Times reported that it is safe to expect that the device will cost at least a little more than the PS4 Pro. Sony's machine hit the market at $399/£349, so users can assume a price point around $450-$500.

Game Console Latest Update: Ps5 Prediction Details Revealed

Express reported that a new prediction has been made that places the PS5 release date as happening in the second-half of 2018. Furthermore, this will put Sony's new console in direct competition with the Xbox Scorpio and Nintendo Switch.

Currently, the PlayStation 4 is proving a great seller for Sony but that doesn't mean plans won't be put in motion to try and extend that market dominance. The Nintendo Switch was released in March and is selling well, however, the portable hybrid device is still lacking in games.

Meanwhile, the Xbox Scorpio arrives later in 2017 and has a completely different selling point. Its strategy is to provide 4K gameplay and performance boosts for existing games, which will put it out in front of its PS4 Pro rival by some margin.
