Eurogamer got exclusive access to Project Scorpio and with Digital Foundry, they took a look at the specs of Microsoft’s next console, Project Scorpio.
Microsoft has been pushing for true 4K so needed specs to be able to achieve that and Eurogamer confirmed they saw Forza Motorsport running at native 4K 60fps suggesting Microsoft hit that target.
Here we can see how the specs go up against Xbox One and a PlayStation 4 Pro.
