Microsoft will show the world its new game console in June
Next game console Microsoft Corporation known under the code name Project Scorpio. For the first time people speak about it at the beginning of 2016, when many of the leaks, it became clear that the Redmond company is planning to give a fitting rebuff to Sony with its improved model of the PlayStation 4. Head of Unit Xbox Phil Spencer during E3 2016 announced that work on the new console really is carried out, but did not disclose details. However, according to yesterday's official announcement, in June, the first time we see a working version of Project Scorpio.
Today on the console knows relatively little. We know that its graphics performance will be close to 6 teraflops, roughly comparable to the Radeon RX 480. Scorpio, if you believe all the same to Phil Spencer will be the most powerful top box on the market, about half udelyvaya PS4 Pro in terms of graphical power . The console also will be equipped with high-performance RAM, and get rid of the bottleneck represented ESRAM, which was used in the Xbox One. The prefix will be quite accurately issue 4K image without any tricks (recall that the PS4 Pro uses the so-called "chess rendering" 4K images). Backwards compatible with games for the Xbox One will continue.
An interesting detail is the support for future console games to virtual reality. However, while it is not clear what kind of VR-helmets can be connected to Scorpio. Personally, I have two suggestions in this respect. Or Microsoft will enter into a partnership agreement with the Oculus Rift headset to use, or submit your own helmet. Especially in the last year, Microsoft has introduced several variants of budget VR-set, which will produce the company. Now we know that Project Scorpio new console will show us very soon. This will take place June 11, 2017 during the Microsoft presentation at E3 2017. A powerful new console - it's always good. Yes, only here will the Redmond giant to ensure its launch quite interesting game releases? After all, without a strong game lineup that can show us all the charm of iron, set-top box may be simply useless. The second question - is, of course, cost. Given that we are promised a sufficiently powerful stuffing, cost console is unlikely to be $ 300, while the price tag may exceed 500 or even $ 600. After all, we all remember the sad story of how Sony was trying to sell its PlayStation 3 for $ 599. Now we have to wait 11 June and see everything with your own eyes.
