Although it may not use AMD’s Vega.

There’s been so much speculation and news flying all around the place when it comes to the Scorpio that at some point, you’re not sure just what you should believe, and what you should be skeptical of. So it’s always nice when some official sources decide to oblige us with comments that can nudge us in the right direction.

This happened recently on NeoGAF, when Halo developer 343 Industries’ Frank O’Connor posted in the thread dedicated to the discussion of the Scorpio possibly using AMD’s Vega architecture by suggesting that the picture that had given rise to the speculation in the first place may have been taken out of context- and that AMD may just have been showcasing their offerings, which include the upcoming Scorpio, and the upcoming Vega, and the two just happened to be side by side.

That said, he did share a few words on what he personally thinks of the Scorpio, too. “Although I probably ‘know’ in that I might have seen it in a slide or something, it’s literally not something I have time to think about now and I actually couldn’t remember whatever specs I’ve been exposed to even if I was tortured. I literally couldn’t leak or answer a question that went beyond ‘Can I do this? Does it support that? How many of these could it render?’ What I do remember is that it’s beefier than I expected.”

So, hey- it might not necessarily be using Vega, but it still will be a powerful console. I don’t think you can ask for anything more.

    Is it beefy enough to play cancelled Xbox One exclusives like Scalebound? What kind of full blown false hype are they advertising this time? Nothing but lies and propaganda.

      Why don’t you just admit you took a break just to come see me, just cause you’re sweet on me. Its not like Gamingbolt is the only gaming site in the world that you can get the news on all those games you listed. You knew exactly where I’d be, didn’t you. You love to read my opinions because a day without me is a day not worth living for a boring loser like you. Don’t worry loser, I’m still here for you.
