The main aim of the Project Scorpio console, which is planned to be launched into the market by the end of 2017 with the power of 6 Teraflop graphics cards, is to become a powerful virtual reality console and to provide real 4K resolution experience to the players other than virtual reality. This console, which is prepared to be a new generation console of Microsoft, has never been seen until this day. Of course we have information about the console but nobody knows what it looks like except Microsoft and Xbox employees. Most likely we will not be able to see it until the E3 2017 event. But the content of this news is not out of the box, but about the inside. Michael Pachter mentioned Project Scorpio and the natural 4K experience and said, “Good, nice, but everyone has 4K TV at home?”
In an interview with The 1099, he said, “I will wait and see what the Project Scorpio console is and the price tag first. But as far as I can see, the console will run games in real 4K resolution. So, do we need this? There is a mountain-like difference between 1080p and 4K resolution. 1080p, 2 million pixels, 4K is 8 million pixels. Oculus Rift is 2.8 million pixels. So that device is not even 4K. Now think, if a $ 1500 computer can not offer 4K experience with Oculus Rift; How will Project Scorpio be presented with a $ 400 price tag? Nevertheless, I do not know. We’ll wait and see.
