The Xbox website has now been updated to show off a schematic that details the most notable hardware components inside Project Scorpio, which you can check out below with the accompanying description for each one of them:
- 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.
And to summarize, here are the rest of Scorpio's specs:
There's still no official word as to what the asking price for Scorpio will be but a price point of $499, as initially estimated by Digital Foundry, would be an absolute bargain seeing as to how current speculation from industry analysts is that based on the pricing of the components that sit at the heart of this console, it will have to cost as much as $700 if Microsoft wants to make any profit on it at all. Similarly, no official release date has been stated but the updated website now shows that it will be sometime at the end of 2017 during the holiday season.
