Posted by at 1:30 pm on April 6, 2017

Microsoft didn’t dish out many details about Project Scorpio when they announced it E3 2016.  Today we have a better idea about the power inside the next Xbox console due Digital Foundry’s in-depth reporting. MS has confirmed the specs

Scorpio’s CPU no longer based on AMD’s Jaguar cores, but instead uses eight custom x86 cores with a 2.3GHz clock speed. They may be based off of AMD’s Ryzen  design. Others still think  the new custom cores are still based on Jaguar. For GPU power, the console uses 40 custom AMD Radeon compute units clocked to 1,172MHz. It also sports 12GB of GDDR5 memory and a 1TB HDD.

The Scorpio will support 4K Blu-ray discs. Combined with the upgraded CPU, improved GPU power, and increased memory, Microsoft’s next console seems poised to overthrow the PlayStation 4 Pro as the most powerful console when it debuts later this year.
