He said that Microsoft knows that 4K and VR requires 6 Teraflops of GPU power, we can see high-end PC that are worth thousands of dollars and in console we can’t have this much cost. He said that they are building a beast, a console with 6 teraflops of GPU power able to deliver 4K gaming and VR in your living room.

He further explained that this should be the choice of the consumer that which console suits him/her best. He said is players want to watch videos in 4K resolution and have HDR in games, than come this August Xbox One S is releasing. However, if they want better than they also have Project Scorpio.

Microsoft has also clarified that frame rate for games on Project Scorpio will be no different than Xbox One. According to general manager of Microsoft Studios, Shannon Loftis, the frame rate will not be different, as developers have control over that and they would not want to separate setups for two consoles.
