Microsoft Unveils Two New Xbox One Revisions – Xbox One S And Xbox One: Project Scorpio – E3 2016
Microsoft has book-ended their E3 2016 press events with announcements of their long-rumored updates to the Xbox One Hardware.
The first announcement was the confirmation that we broke yesterday. A slimmer, more streamlined version of the Xbox One is on the verge of hitting the market. The Xbox One S will be 40 % smaller, allow 4K resolution, have an internal power supply, and a 2TB hard drive. The device will also ship with a redesigned Xbox One Controller, with a textured grip.
The Xbox One S will be released in August for $299.
The second update Xbox One will be the expanded, more powerful version of the hardware, called Xbox Box One: Project Scorpio.
Microsoft is designing the Xbox One: Project Scorpio to be the most powerful console ever developed.
The new console will have a 6 tera-flop processor, capable of rendering fully uncompressed textures. Xbox One: Scorpio will also have a 320gb per second bandwidth.
Microsoft head, Phil Spencer noted that Microsoft Xbox One games will all share the same eco-system, so games designed to run on Xbox One: Project Scorpio will also be able to run, albeit at a lower resolution, on both the original Xbox One, as well as the Xbox One S.
The Xbox One: Project Scorpio is expected to launch during the holiday season in 2017.
