Microsoft Executive: PS4 Pro’s 4.2 TFLOPs Not Enough To Do “True” 4K Gaming

“I feel like our product aspired a little bit higher,” says Microsoft’s Albert Penello.

The Xbox One Scorpio is technically a superior machine when compared to the PS4 Pro. Microsoft’s newest machine comes packed with 6Tflops of GPU, a superior CPU and improved memory putting it head and shoulders above the Sony’s PS4 Pro. Now we already know that Sony’s machine cannot do native 4K for AAA games but that is not stopping Microsoft’s Albert Penello from boasting Scorpio’s technical prowess.

“There are just a lot of asterisks in their [Sony’s] marketing around 4K, which is interesting because when we thought about what spec we wanted for Scorpio, we were very clear we wanted developers to take their Xbox One engines and render them in native, true 4K. That was why we picked the number, that’s why we have the memory bandwidth we have, that’s why we have the teraflops we have, because it’s what we heard from game developers was required to achieve native 4K,” he said in an interview with EuroGamer.

“Now, similarly to what Sony said, that doesn’t mean I’m going to require developers to do this. They’re going to be able to decide to take that six teraflops of power and do what they think is best for their game. But I know that 4.2 teraflops is not enough to do true 4K. So, I feel like our product aspired a little bit higher, and we will have fewer asterisks around the 4K experiences we deliver on our box,” he further added.

It’s basically a repeat of what we saw during the early years of the current gen console cycle. However Microsoft and Sony have switched places and it’s the former who is riding on the hype of a more powerful console.

    Scorpio will simply crush the PRo. This is a inevitable fact.

    “But more than enough to force us to put our exclusives on Stram just to make some of the money lost on Scorpio back.”

    • kma99

      Good luck with that notion.

    • Michael

      Mad pony on the loose! Just stop. Sony doesn’t have the money to compete at this level. Phil Spencer is crushing them and there’s nothing they can do about it.

      So are you saying that MS didn’t have the funds when designing Xbox One? That was less powerful, it must mean they were short of cash.. Muppet

    • crazy_black_man-

      Theyre subsidizing their Scorpio project costs by selling the lesser Xbox One S to the same idiots that they will be targeting with Scorpio next year.

  • Mr Xrat

    Neither is the 6TF of pixie dust in the Shitpio.

    Keep talking it up though, Penello, watching him make a fool of himself in the run up to the abortion Xbone launch was hilarious, a replay would be even better.
