Xbox Scorpio will Never Beat PS4 Pro for One Reason

Project Scorpio will be the first console to support AMD's FreeSync technology Project Scorpio To Support Freesync And Next-Gen HDMI

The screen is created to display data like frames per second, which is for Xbox games developers who want to see that information at a glance.

Gamasutra got an exclusive peek at the Project Scorpio development kit and it looks a lot like an Xbox One S. While this is definitely not the final design as the placement of the fan and Blu-ray drive don't add up, it's the internal specifications that matter. In the interview, Spencer reiterates his policy in developing for Scorpio and its place within the Xbox One family. New information about the soon to be unveiled console will be released occasionally.

Those powerful specs also mean the console will work as a centre for streaming 4K and HDR content via the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video, YouTube and more.

Porting is an important subject when it comes to new consoles, especially like Project Scorpio that is arriving in the middle of the current console generation.

Spencer doesn't say it in as many words, but Scorpio sounds like the first project to launch from Xbox which Spencer himself will have been captain of from start to finish.

Scorpio has been customized on the silicon level, but the robust software pipeline is the yin to the console hardware's yang; the system ensures that games don't waste any power and only use the resources they need.

Microsoft's Project Scorpio is now expected to be released sometime during the upcoming holiday season. And did we mention that, as with the Xbox One, you can convert the retail Scorpio into a developer kit? The console also lets 4K contents run at high speed. Scorpio specifically supports FreeSync variable refresh rates over HDMI, DisplayPort output won't be coming to consoles. The best part is that this will prevent screen tearing even on games that fail to deliver 30fps - a feature that was missing on the Freesync 1 standard.

"So from a development platform, we needed to think about our hardware as multi-generational", he said.

Microsoft is expected to reveal more details about Scorpio this summer, most likely at the E3 gaming expo in June.

Based on what we have on the AMD FreeSync 2, it seems that it's actually a good addition to the already powerful video game console. Microsoft's latest console, though, could help push the sales of the Xbox One ahead of the PlayStation 4.
