1. 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.

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

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

4. 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.

Does anyone plan to get an XBox Scorpio here? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and cheers to @PLAYER 1 for sharing the news tip with me earlier today and @VultraBabe for the tip in the PSXHAX Shoutbox! (y)

Well damn it looks like Sony is going to take an L for this console generation well specs wise.... trying to milk us for money with that "pro" although games wise Sony has it in the bag and left the building because there are some really really cool exclusives im looking forward to and some that have come out and i still haven't gotten to play "horizon zero dawn" well in many ways im glad i went with the ps4 but in many ways im not.
Something tells me most games still won't run at 4k with those specs. Bet there will be a lot of 1440-1800p titles.
Seeing that Mircosoft custom built that gpu from the ground up and they're the PC gods i bet you 1000000 dolla dolla bills it will

No exclusives - not buying
100% this. The Scorpio is still just an above-average PC that doesn't run programs. If you spend the money on a graphics card instead, you can play all the same games, plus tens of thousands more at a fraction of the cost (thanks to Steam sales) in full 4k.

Exclusives are bad for the consumer, but Mario Odyssey is the only reason to buy a Switch, and the Japanese exclusives are the only reason to buy a PS4 or Vita. As it stands, my Xbone purchase was basically a $300 pack in with my PC controller.

I'm not buying this but i just wanna point out your ignorance. "The Scorpio is still just an above-average PC that doesn't run programs."

It is a above average pc you got that part right but the part where you said "doesnt run programs" my dude games are programs the xbox OS or aka windows just a modified version of it is a program LMAFO.
