Phil Spencer has confirmed that Project Scorpio is real and is pushing hardware specs at the Microsoft E3 media briefing.
While there was no hardware on show to see what it looks like, they did touch on some of the specifications of the machine making it the most powerful console. Specs and capabilities confirmed are:
- 8 Core CPU
- 320GB/s memory bandwidth
- 6 Teraflops GPU power
Combined, the specs will allow the machine to run true 4K gaming and high fidelity virtual reality.
Microsoft were also keen to inform players that Xbox One, Xbox One S and Project Scorpio will all be compatible so no new controllers or games required.
