Scorpio Graphics Boost Will Be Smaller At First, 6TFLOPS Will Allow For High FPS In 4K, Says Tarsier

Little Nightmares’s Dave Mervik thinks Xbox Scorpio is gonna be good.

While there is quite a bit of excitement surrounding the Xbox Scorpio, both among developers and users, there are some people who have rightfully pointed out there are going to be some drawbacks, at least when the console launches. We recently talked to Dave Mervik, one of the devs working on Little Nightmares for Tarsier Studios. Mervik thinks the Scorpio isn’t going to be hitting its potential out of the box but will hit its stride eventually.

Mervik was asked specifically whether he thought the power that comes with the Scorpio will really be able to be put to meaningful use. “Initially, we’ll probably see less of a boost than we’d hope for, but there are ways to improve the games for Scorpio without sacrificing the experience of the game on Xbox One. With time, developers usually find a way to get the most out of the consoles in one way or another.”

Mervik was also asked what he thought was going to be some of the graphical improvements that come along with the 6 TFLOPs the Scorpio is going to be powered with and while he wasn’t specific, he certainly seems to be looking forward to checking it out. “We’ll hopefully get some really beautiful games running at a high frame rate in 4k. That would be a nice high bar for others to try to follow.”

Thoughts on the Xbox Scorpio? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Jesus Christ are you just playing dumb? IT’S…….NOT…….GOING…..TO……BE…..AS…….POWERFUL……..AS……..THEY…..ALL………THINK…….IT………IS!! (I can’t put it any simpler than that I’m afraid) Now go away!! SHOO!!

      What matters to Xbots is that…it’s more powerful than PS4 & Pro, which contradicts ur idiotic…original post about them being disappointed! Don’t post sumthing dumb, get hit with a right hook, and then say “shoo”. Lol

    • omarcominyo

      Delusional, illiterate and dumb, you don’t really have a lot going for you!! I guess that’s where the name comes from(being an easy ‘mark’)

      *Sigh. DirectX12 was hyped up to give the Xbox advantage over PS4, or atleast on par wit it. So it may have been disappointing with that. Now, the Scorpio will give the power advantage over the Pro & PS4. Ur argument makes no sense because Xbots will be happy knowing they have the superior machine….they aren’t expecting effin Titan X performance. I’m the delusional one? In fact they’re clowing the Pro now for hitting sub 4K. All they need is to have the resolution advantage, and thats what they’ll get..go edit ur original post, cuz it’s stupid.

    • omarcominyo

      Yes they are expecting 4k across the board but as you’re illiterate you probably just couldn’t read their comments!! If you’re not one of those people then why are you even replying to me then? Who asked you to leap to their defence?
      I said the EXACT same thing to the sony fanboys who were expecting the same with PS4k(as it was called at the time), I called them delusional for expecting 4k too and I was right (and I’ll be right about this too!!)

      You’re so blinded by ‘fanboyitis’ that you don’t realise what a bukiak you’re making of yourself!!
      I’m not a shallow cheerleader so own all the systems!

      Oh, so ur saying Scorpio won’t render in native 4K across the board. I’m not illiterate, just confused by, again, a dumb post, and one that’s vague and ambigious by not specifying what the heck u meant by “Xbots are expecting too much”. But you’ll just say I shoulda known what u meant right, ahaha. Anyway ur argument’s still weak. Why wouldn’t a console with 50+% more GPU, 50% more bandwidth, prolly 50% more RAM and CPU than the Pro, run games in native 4K, when the Pro is already doing that in some AAA games? There’s GPUs doing 4K with less than 6Tflops…goodness, I’m done.

    • omarcominyo

      You were well and truly ‘done’ 10 comments ago!! (in fact you never really got started!) *smirk*
      I’m actually starting to feel a little bad for you!

    • Mark

      If u can’t answer the question, it’s clear where ur knowledge and mines stand. I know what’s 4K achievable, and you don’t. Dat delusion doe.

    • omarcominyo

      Back for more even though you declared you were done(kind of proves your words don’t mean jackshi*!!)
      Go on say your ‘done’ again and then come back!! HaHaHa! What a bukiak!!

    • Mark

      No, “I’m done” as in, I’m baffled that u don’t even know about 4K, so u just post out of ignorance. I’m here as long as u wanna exchange son

    • omarcominyo

      Bring it on, you ever read a dictionary? (of course you haven’t, books are clearly kryptonite to you) Well you just might start, (it’ll do you some good anyway!)

    • Mark

      How funny, the guy that doesn’t read up on 4K gaming, that posts his opinions based off of emotion, is tellin me, to read…smh. Answer my question next time you reply or concede.

    • omarcominyo

      I’ve been 4k gaming for over 2 years, I just don’t bother to read over half of what you post so didn’t see any question(bit of a waste of your time really!)
      Enjoy your dictionary, maybe you will see ‘done’ in there and find out what it actually means!!

    • Mark

      Ahahaa. This guys says I’m taking up his precious time, pfff. I replied to a post that YOU MADE, for everyone to see. Since u had the audacity to rant about how the Scorpio’s gonna disappoint the Xbots, I checked u on it, and 1) you failed to even specify what u meant, till 7 comments later, and 2) I asked u a question about Scorpio’s hardware for 4K, and that some GPU cards are already doing 4K/30fps with less than 6Tflops on older architecture. So all I’ve gotten back is a bunch of “Your illiterate and delusional”, ugghh. Dam son.
