The unveiling of the Xbox Scorpio is approaching with great strides. On Sunday before E3 2017, Microsoft would like to introduce the hardware. Already today, another detail about the Dev Kit has arrived. This concerns the small display, which is installed on the front of the developer hardware. This is not only the question of the framerates.
A few days ago, pictures were released for the first time, which looked at the dev kit of the Xbox Scorpio. This is a hardware that allows developers to test the games for the new console, or to test them almost under the conditions on the final console. On the pictures of the developer hardware was a small display, on which the Framerate can be represented. In the consumer version of the Xbox Scorpio it is the small display does not create.
In addition, the fact that the small display on the front of the Dev kit is not only able to display the framerate is now being seen. There are many other things to do. The “screen” is fully programmable so that very different things can be displayed. This applies, for example, to different fonts, videos and dolphins, as the following video demonstrates.
As the consumer version of the Xbox Scorpio will ultimately look and whether it actually has to do without the display, we are expected to experience on the Sunday before the E3 2017. At a press conference, the Redmonder will present the new console. Maybe we will get the price, the publication date and also details about the VR support.
Scorpio XDK front panel does way more than just FPS count. Fully programmable. Watch dolphins on the back screen, etc. Really cool stuff. pic.twitter.com/AaV63fq9qr
