Microsoft’s Project Scorpio – 4K Xbox specs revealed

CPU – Eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz
GPU – 40 customised compute units at 1172MHz
Memory – 12GB GDDR5
Memory Bandwidth – 326GB/s
Hard Drive – 1TB 2.5-inch
Optical Drive – 4K UHD Blu-ray

Scorpio uses a custom, upgraded version of AMD’s Jaguar CPU tech, the same one found in the original Xbox One as well as PS4, and PS4 Pro. It’s clocked at 2.3GHz, higher than PS4 Pro’s 2.1GHz and Xbox One’s 1.75GHz, though it retains the 4MB L2 Cache.

That’s a whole lot of numbers that will mean pretty much nothing to most people. Bottom line, the still to be named “Project Scorpio” Xbox runs a straight Forza 4 port in 4K at 60fps easily. That is damn impressive.

The stranger part of today’s announcement, it came courtesy of an exclusive DigitalFoundry video instead of Microsoft themselves. The video (embedded below) is straight up nerd-town but does have some cool snippets if you want to wade through the full 15 minutes.
