Xbox Scorpio

T3 - - Hot 100 -

True 4K gam­ing could be set to ar­rive in the con­sole- iverse when the Xbox Scorpio hits the shelves. (The Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro use types of clever up­scal­ing to cre­ate a kind of 4K- lite.) To achieve this, Mi­crosoft plans to en­dow its lat­est Xbox with six ter­aflops of graph­i­cal per­for­mance – four and a half times more GPU power than the Xbox One. This should also be enough to let Xbox­ers fi­nally sam­ple vir­tual re­al­ity on their con­sole, which is ex­cit­ing – but does that mean Mi­crosoft will also be build­ing its own VR head­set? Un­likely, but it could mean Ocu­lus Rift or HTC Vive com­pat­i­bil­ity. We’ll find out later in the year. £TBC, www.xbox.com
