Xbox One Scorpio’s 6 TFLOPs Plans Have Not Changed Since Announcement, Phil Spencer Confirms
Still the most powerful console ever.
Microsoft announced the Xbox One Scorpio would have a 6TFLOPs GPU back at E3, when they announced the new system for a Holiday 2017 release date. There have since been rumors and some persistent speculation that Microsoft may in fact not meet this target that they so publicly set for themselves, and that we may end up with something that is almost, but not quite, 6TFLOPs, for a GPU.
Speaking on Twitter, however, Xbox head Phil Spencer put an end to that speculation once and for all by recommitting to a 6TFLOP GPU, and confirming that Microsoft’s plans have not changed since the initial announcement for the console.
This means that as of right now, the Xbox One Scorpio is still slated to be the most powerful console ever created when it launches next year- though at the same time, the question of whether or not that power will amount to anything, given that it will never have true exclusives, and always have to maintain parity with Xbox One, is something that remains to be seen.
