    Hardware specs were officially released for the new Xbox, Project Scorpio. Just wondering what you all thing about these specs?

    I personally think Microsoft is doing an amazing job trying to make an optimized powerful gaming machine that can handle high fidelity gaming. Consoles are finally trying to start to compete with more powerful PCs then in the past. I'm personally looking forward to this, and the future Microsoft has in store with being able to play games on both Xbox and PC :)

    What do all of you think about it?

    to be honest microsoft should first think about good software exclusives and then a console with high specs, not all multiplatform devs will take advantage of that tech since they have to make games for the ps4 or ps4 pro aswell.
    the article also mentions a demo for forza, it is pretty much fully optimized for the scorpio and it is a tech demo for the console, on real life scenario with multiplat that hardly will be so smooth (4k 60fps is comparable to a gtx 1080 and a high end cpu, my 1070 which is a $450 card can't really do 4k 60 fps at ultra on AAA games, how much does this thing have to cost to perform like that?)
    the thing that "worries me" is that the price will be too steep for console users, haven't read anything about that in the article (i might have overlooked it), but i'm pretty sure they are marketing it as a premium console, you might as well build a pc if it's the price of a high end gpu
    It does look like a really good consolle, but i think i'll stick with my pc; with a decent upgrade by the time scorpio comes out i can probably have better graphics, better framerates and much better peripherals

    Read the article, it has some good information on how they optimized all the hardware to remove all the bottlenecks of games and game engines. So it will be able to hit resolution and frame rates a lot easier then just any video card for PC. They fully customized the SOC and memory to be way more optimized then just any GPU you can buy from AMD or Nvidia. Thats how it performs so well.

    It's most likely going to be around $500. And Microsoft built the hardware so the devs barely have to do anything to make their games 4k. A game that runs 1080p or even 900p currently, will be able to get to 4k super easy with the API's microsoft is providing for the devs. So its super easy for the devs to take advantage of it, and I think a lot of them will. They are pricing it in the console price range, and if its too expensive not many people would buy it. They are targeting a $1000 PC for about half the price. Seems like a pretty good deal to me :)
