Project Scorpio is the latest upcoming console which is set to launch in November this year. The basic principles of the console dictates that it will bring native 4K resolution gaming with at least 30FPS at an extremely affordable price point.

Scorpio’s Processing Unit have been shown off by Xbox Vice President Mike Ybarra on twitter. The latest console’s processing unit has been displayed a little more closely, with a very cheeky 4K logo on the bottom left corner of the chip. The picture can be found below.


At this point, showing off the CPU may be a little redundant because it is one of the most iconic faces of Xbox Scorpio at this point and has been shown everywhere. It was revealed last year at the Project Scorpio reveal. Digital foundry has also covered it quite extensively. It’s still pretty nice to see the console’s brains though.

As for the 4K performance of the chip, eurogamer’s digital foundry’s exclusive cover of the beast lead us to many remarkable showdowns between the console and the current generation PCs:
“Performance is remarkable. We saw a Forza Motorsport demo running on the machine at native 4K and Xbox One equivalent settings, and it hit 60 frames per second with a substantial performance overhead – suggesting Scorpio will hit its native 4K target across a range of content, with power to spare to spend on other visual improvements. And while 4K is the target, Microsoft is paying attention to 1080p user’s, promising that all modes will be available to them”

If you are excited for the console’s release in the holiday season, you may find it interesting that Sony may also be working on their flagship gaming console as well; we may actually see PS5 sometime in 2018.
