Microsoft’s latest and greatest console, the Xbox Scorpio is set to launch this year; this piece of gaming hardware is hoping to be the headline at E3 2017. While we know that the Scorpio dev kits are available, we haven’t really seen them exclusively at all, their unveiling has just been done ahead of E3.
In the video, Xbox engineer Kevin Gammill tells us a bit more about the developer kit; this powerful hardware is said to have more power than the retail version and a larger form factor as well, though since we don’t know the retail version, we’re not sure what to compare it with.
This dev kit has 24GB of RAM which is 12 GB more than the retail version, and has a front display panel which shows off the frames per second, the tiny display can also play simple games like snake if you’re curious.
Microsoft also revealed that the console will be out in China as well as the US in the same year, 2017. This was originally supposed to launch after the US release, but it seems that the company has made up its mind already, and that’s a good thing.
We will be seeing a lot more coverage on Microsoft’s Xbox Scorpio at E3 2017, along with the first party titles like State of Decay 2 and Forza Motorsport. This beast of a console is ready to play any games you throw at it at native 4K resolution and with some games, the FPS may as well be 60.
There have been a lot of speculations about the consoles’ power, Microsoft is fully on board with its potential and is expected to counter mid-end PCs and be a much more viable option for budgeted gamers who want to play games at native 4K.
For more updates, stay tuned.
