Xbox One S vs Project Scorpio

The first thing Microsoft unveiled during its E3 press conference was the rumored Xbox One Slim and now officially called Xbox One S.

Not only Xbox One S is 40 % slimmer than Xbox One, but this console offers much more like 4K video streaming and HDR. However, Microsoft did not go in to details regarding the hardware powering the Xbox One S, but it seems that the new console will have additional power compared to Xbox One.

In an interview with Polygon, Coalition Studio head, Rod Fergusson, said that Xbox One S will provide a more consistent technical performance. Xbox One S has additional Raw CPU and GPU power, and engineers at Coalition have been able to take advantage of it by reducing the frequent frame rate drops in demanding section of the game.

Gears Of War 4 will definitely take advantage of the newly announced Xbox One S, however, this does not ensures a 4K version for Project Scorpio.

We have to look at what the engine can do with the power that Scorpio has. Because we’re mastering at 4K, it’s not about assets or art. It’s about getting the milliseconds down in terms of getting the game to 4K at 60 or 30 [fps] depending on single-player or multiplayer.

Microsoft has also announced Project Scorpio, and according to the company this is much more powerful compared to the consoles present in the market today. This upcoming console will support VR and a 4K version of Gears Of War 4.

The console will have 8 CPU cores and 320+ GB/s memory bandwidth, and it seems like a monster of a console.

During the conference Microsoft announced that Gears Of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2, ReCore and many of their games will be available for both Xbox One and PC and will support cross-play.

Xbox One S will release in August for $299 and Gears Of War 4 will be available for the console.
