The top news with Project Scorpio’s announcement is the new Xbox console is going to have 6 teraflops of GPU power. This, anyway, doesn’t mean developers have to use all the potential in a streamlined process dictated by the platform holder: Microsoft has indeed revealed they can do whatever they want with that amazing power.
“6 teraflop gaming machine, which will be a great gaming machine for true 4K gaming, giving you a native 4K frame buffer so you can see games in all their beauty.” “Or,” he continued, “if developers want to use those 6 teraflops in other ways they’re free to do that.”
Interestingly, Spencer also noted that, despite gamers won’t have any particular benefit in terms of graphics if they don’t own a 4K TV, Scorpio’s additional power will allow it to deliver more visually impressive games along the way.
This additional power is said to be able to offer a more consistent performance with titles who suffers resolution drops to favor 60 frames per second performances.
