Today Microsoft has reveal the specs via Digital Foundry for Project Scorpio which will have 12GB of DDR5 RAM, at 6.8GHz with 326 GB/s bandwidth.

As previously known, Scorpio will rock eight CPU cores, but now we have a little more detail. It’s a custom design sporting 2.3GHz, with a 4MB L2 cache.

Project Scorpio will sport a compact design, owing to advanced cooling techniques pioneered by Microsoft’s leading industrial design team.

Project Scorpio will achieve SIX TERAFLOPS of GPU power using a customized design, with 1,172 GHz, 40 compute units, while leveraging features from AMD’s Polaris architecture.
As expected, Scorpio will retain the Xbox One S 4K UHD Blu-ray drive.
DF tested a version with a 1 TB HDD, but it’s not yet known if it will come in other configurations.
Scorpio will have both HDMI-in and out, 3x USB 3.0, a SPDIF digital audio port, an IR receiver/blaster, and will support Kinect with a USB adapter.

Digital Foundry stated that the performance of Scorpio is “remarkable,” emphasizing how the Forza Motorsport demo they witnessed achieved True 4K and 60 frames per second (FPS) with a “substantial performance overhead,” which we understand to be around 65 percent.

This means that Project Scorpio can achieve a huge amount of graphical improvements out of the box, with room for developers to make additional improvements to shadows, anti-aliasing, draw distance and various other performance-hogging game design aspects.

More information about Project Scorpio coming this E3 in June, with pricing and release date window.
