Microsoft releases details of Project Scorpio console

The console has reportedly been designed from the start to make newer games playable at ultra-high 4K resolutions and at high frame rates. Detailed specifications shared with the websites reveal that the hardware inside the console will have a central processor with eight cores that run at 2.3GHz. By contrast, the eight cores in Sony's PS4 Pro run at 2.1Ghz and those in the Xbox One at 1.75GHz. The 40 cores in the graphics unit also run at a higher speed than those in the 36 cores in the Sony console and the 12 in the Xbox One. Seth Barton from game news site MCV said Microsoft still had some key decisions to take with the console. Microsoft first mentioned Project Scorpio in June last year and the console is due to go on sale in time for Christmas this year.
