Xbox’s second generation Xbox One console, Project Scorpio, was revealed during E3 2016, and was promised to drastically improve the performance of the Xbox One, such as providing native 4K gaming and drastic processing and graphics upgrades. Today, DigitalFoundry unveiled their exclusive look at Project Scorpio’s specs. This of course begs the question: Project Scorpio vs. PS4 Pro, which console comes out on top?
The Scorpio starts with an immediate upgrade to the Xbox One’s 8-core CPU, which are now clocked at 2.3GHz. Additionally, the Scorpio also improves on the Xbox One’s memory (to 12GB of GDDR5 RAM), which was once considered one of its downsides compared to the PlayStation 4 at launch. These features, alongside additional upgrades, are said to improve games’ resolutions, load times, textures/rendering, and more.
Below, you’ll find a chart comparing the Scorpio’s powerful tech with that of the current Xbox One and the PS4 Pro.
In nearly every aspect, the Scorpio boasts much beefier specs across the board when compared to the PS4 Pro, which is an interesting comparison considering Sony’s upgraded hardware released in November of 2016. Will Sony be releasing further iterations to compete with the Scorpio? Only time will tell.
