What do you think of Scorpio's specs?

Take a look at this official scorpio page from Microsoft. New specs were released earlier today.

It will have 40 cores in its graphics unit, a step up from the PS4’s 36 cores (pro) and the current xbox one’s 12.
Linking a BBC article so you can check it out.

Apparently it will cost over £400.

If the beauty matches its muscle, I’d say it’s a magnificent powerhouse.

Imagine if they brought out a limited edition Halo one. My life would be complete.

…a (translucent) green one, at that.

They could do that for the 20 year anniversary of Halo.

True, but they could also do a similar thing by commemorating the Halo Championship Series with limited edition consoles with team-exclusive decals and colour schemes.

That would be amazing. Though imagine a chrome gold plated version.

Sounds like it will be pretty beefy. Hopefully no more dropped frames or choppy gameplay.

If that does happen, then i’m sure we would have something to complain about lol.

They weren’t kidding when the said ‘The most powerful console ever made’. I want one.

I do wonder how big the actual unit will be though. And given that consoles are gradually getting smaller in size, we could see a form factor similar to the Xbox One S without compromising performance.

People have already probably found something to complain about it. Haha

Despite me forking out £400 for my Halo 5 version, if they ever brought out a Halo scorpio version looks like i’m getting another xbone lol.

Some might say it’s too expensive. Though it was expected, an increase in power = an increase in cost.

Hold your horses, bud - wait until some good reviews come out first. It may be a long and agonizing wait, but combating buyer’s remorse is a wise mindset to have.

Oh, I’m not getting it. No point when I only have 1080p screens in the house. Still want one though…

I think the best decision to do when it come out. Wait until the price drops. Or just pick up a special edition costing a bit extra. The choice is up to you.

Ah, yes…the old gripe of not having a 4K TV in your house. :\

I don’t have a 4k tv, I only have a 1080p Samsung Smart. However by buying the scorpio, your already setting yourself up to get a 4k tv. Lets say in 3-4 years time, no doubt these tv’s are going to be affordable, so you will be all set.

I don’t really care about the size of the console as long as it’s size is appropriate to its power. If it’s the size of a computer then I’m going to expect to be powerful. If its small and powerful even better.

What I’m kind of worried about is how heavy the thing will be
