Another Project Scorpio specifications leake has happened, and as promised by Microsoft that its new upcoming console Xbox Scorpio will be a 4K ready machine with VR support and can play backwards compatible titles.
The leaked specs moreover tell that the console is a mighty one. Regardless of the promises and high hopes Microsoft is feeding into gaming industry, no official detail on specs is yet announced. However, recent Specifications leak about Project Scorpio sheds light on its buffed up hardware. It is worth noting that the leak is unofficial and is prone to change once Microsoft comes up with a detailed announcement on Project Scorpio specifications.
The features leaked for Project Scorpio are listed as following:
- Total Memory of 13 GB, with 12 GDDR5X shared and 1 GB DDR3 app and stand-by.
- VEGA GPU (graphics) at 6.3 TFLOPS, 64 ROPS and 130 TMU, 950 Mhz, 64 ALU, GCN 4.0
- CPU based on Ryzen technology customized by Microsoft
- dedicated DSP audio chip and one for compression and decompression
- SoC built in 14 nm
- Global power (TF): 6.5 and 7 Teraflops
Furthermore, we know that Xbox One base system is powered by AMD and that the Project Scorpio will also come out optimized by AMD. However, the recent official announcement by AMD for AMD Ryzen plus AMD Vega makes gaming technology jump further in hardware.
The combo of AMD Ryzen CPU and AMD Vega GPU will touch the new heights of graphics technology. The leaked specs of Project Scorpio tells that it will opt AMD’s new CPU and GPU combo, which will for sure output the unprecedented performance.
Moreover, the choice of a 14 nm SoC will allow a better dissipation of the heat generated by the new console, which could lead to a higher performance until reaching 7 TF, increasing the clock frequency of the processor from 950 MHz to 1200 MHz.
The overall power of the console will depend on the tests of consumption and heat dissipation generated by the console, but it could be real that the new Xbox Scorpio exceeds the 6 announced Teraflops.
These are still the leaked specs and remain unofficial unless Microsoft comes up and discloses the specification details.
