I have to admit, I’m actually kind of excited for this.
I might actually try and tune into the stream to see what Microsoft has to say about this thing because from what they’ve said so far, I like it.
Not that they’ve said that much, other than “it will be the best thing you’ve ever seen” which Microsoft tends to say a lot when they’re talking about one of their products, good or really stupid. But hey, I have some confidence, I mean Microsoft isn’t all bad. Between Windows Vista, Windows 8, Windows 10, the initial Xbox 360, and the Xbox One announcement I can see why you would think so. But things eventually work out maybe partially in a way if you squint at it. Screw it, I still have confidence.
What they’ve said about Scorpio sounds great. They’re adding an 8 core CPU, 12 GB of DDR5 Memory, and a 6 Teraflop GPU which has decent enough specs to challenge the 1060 I have sitting in my tower right now, all being put in what is basically an Xbox One. If that isn’t powerful, I don’t know what is.
Watch a detailed interview from the first person outside of Microsoft to see Project Scorpio in action, next…
