Microsoft updates Project Scorpio website with new info

After the big reveal today concerning the technical specifications of Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One console, currently codenamed Project Scorpio, the tech giant has updated their webpage for the product to list all of the information that has been made publically available.

In addition to the initial announcement video and the “Coming holiday 2017” reminder, the page, which is hosted on the official Xbox website, features a new digital rendering of the console’s insides and numbered labels identifying each aspect. The actual physical appearance of Project Scorpio (i.e. its size and shell shape) have yet to be revealed and will likely be shown at E3 this year.

Here’s the official stats that the page lists:

Scorpio Engine: With 6 Teraflops, 326GB/s of Memory Bandwidth and advanced, custom silicon, the Scorpio Engine is the most powerful console gaming processor ever created.

Vapor Chamber: A first for home consoles, Project Scorpio’s Vapor Chamber uses advanced liquid cooling to ensure the Scorpio Engine stays cool.

Centrifugal Fan: A supercharger-style Centrifugal Fan rapidly pulls in and compresses air to deliver maximum cooling with minimum noise.

Hovis Method: To maximize performance and minimize power consumption, Project Scorpio uses the Hovis Method, a cutting edge digital power delivery system that custom tunes each console’s voltage.

True 4K Gaming, 6 Teraflop GPU, 2.3 GHz, Custom CPU, 1TB HDD Storage, 12 GB GDDR5 Memory, 326 GB/s Memory Bandwidth, HDR Games & Entertainment, 4K UHD Blu-ray/DVD.
