The rumors were correct- the Xbox One Scorpio’s official reveal will be coming this Thursday, courtesy of the fine folks at Digital Foundry, the site has confirmed via its official Twitter account. The reveal will be posted at 6am PT/8am CT/9am ET/2pm GST.

The reveal is widely expected to focus on the technical side of the Scorpio, perhaps giving us more insight into its specs; leaks say that multiple games running on the Scorpio may also be assessed and exhibited, although how much of that is true is unclear as of right now. However, one thing is for sure- this Thursday, we should know exactly how powerful the Scorpio is.

We may not learn its official name, or its price, however- those might be announcements Microsoft plans to save for later, maybe for an E3 announcement. But it will be good to have some of the relentless speculation around the console be put to rest with some cold, hard facts.

      Nice!
      Finally Xbox will have the features that the Sony Pro already has!
      e.g. 6TFLOP = 12 TFLOP with AMD Rapid Packet Math (PRO feature already but faster than Pro)

    • kma99

      Lol how much of that mark cerny kool aid did u drink lol

    • C. Hoffer

      Shrug…
      Any boost in performance is good. Just because you don’t like that fact, even when directly quoted from Sony and AMD and game devs, makes you look kinda slow (read severely lacking in intelligence)…or some kind of fanboy.

    • kma99

      Is it slow of me to call out his bs stating that the pro haa 8.4 tf or is it bs for him to not realize that there is no way the pro has 8.4 tf of power? Seems like you’re slow if you believe that nonsense.

    • C. Hoffer

      Yet all the professionals (e.g. manufacturers, designers, integrates, game designers) admit the power is there despite your kicking and screaming that it isn’t.

      Sadly your perception isn’t exactly wrong, its based on the absolute garbage that people accept as ‘good’ then think that there can’t be anything better….lol…except for Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, CD Projekt Red and a very few others.
      e.g. Garbage people base opinions on is below:
      – One/One S (hardware)
      – All Xbox games/software designed for One/One S (from performance standpoint)
      – Andromeda (as a multi-platform game example)

    • ProAssassin84

      I think you want to Listen when Mark Cerny talks.

    • kma99

      Listento him what? Feed u that hyperbole. He was talking about having 8.4 tf of power with 16 bit computations when modern games are doing more than that. So in his damage control mind for you slow people yeah it can do 8.4 tf. Therefore with his same hyperbole the scorpio can do 12. Thanks gor allowing me to listen to her majesty Mark

    • crazy_black_man-

      Mark Cerny wouldve designed a waaaay better Xbox One than those incompetent engineers at MS, thats for DAMN sure.

    • kma99

      Lol but he didn’t and all u got was the ps pro the checkerboarder extraordinaire lol.

    • C. Hoffer

      lol.
      I get the distinct impression that you are referring to the old 8/16/32/64 bit system instructions that limited everything from graphics to memory to hard drive access, etc.
      Let me clue you in…..16 bit instructions in Modern Game engines have absolutely NOTHING to do with the old infrastructure war that took years to get us to 64 bit operating and programming systems. The only thing that is the ‘same’ is the words “16 bit”.
      The underlying tech is sound and an actual advancement from previous hardward and engines. Basically it allows double speed processing where 32 bit is not required. This should NOT be confused with the old programs of yesteryear where they were built on 16 bits systems and 32 bits was more efficient because it carried more data in the same space of time.

    • kma99

      I get the distinct impression you still trying to damage control the ps pro ability not to do 4k yet say it has more power than the scorpio yet not enough to do native 4k. You drones are slow

    • Sp4ctr0

      EA Frostbite already use Rapid Packet Math (FP16) from PS4 Pro

    • C. Hoffer

      On a separate note –
      I really wish management had authorized the purchase/use of bolting in a high quality animation portion for the engine…rather than this Andromeda fiasco.
      As Bioware fixes the portions for that game there is no indication that their ‘branch’ will backfill to the actual base engine. It’s always better to add high quality items to the base engine then allow all the studios to tweak that for their games.

    • ProAssassin84

      Don’t speak logic to Xbox Fanboys there brains will explode.

    • Mark

      I’m way too excited to see how the 4K GAME DVR feature will look. Recording my Gears clips at 4K/60 is just…..ugghhh!

    • ProAssassin84

      All that power to play Cartoon Pirates. LMFAO

    • crazy_black_man-

      HILARIOUSNESS!!!!

  • Davey681

    Scorpio does native 4k..red dead 2 and battlefront 2 and shadow of war already announced at native 4k…Hmmm but my PS4 pro already does 720p and upscales which is the best. Native 4k is too high. And my PS4 pro doesn’t have back compat….back compat is really bad, And my PS4 pro doesn’t have a 4k bluray since no one watches movies. Just games 24/7 !!
    I rub my weenie on my PS4 pro.

    • C. Hoffer

      If you want 720p you might be thinking of your current One/S. lol
      Pro just does fine. Scorpio may do better…if real developers utilize it. Otherwise you’ll end up with the same garbage as you have now on the one.
      Even Borderlands/Handsome Collection (which is cartoon graphics) is total laggy trash on the One S.

    • Davey681

      Nope
      Ime thinking of PS4 “pro”. Nioh has to drop to 720p for it to run at 60fps. Xbox one S upscales all games to 4k while PS4 does not. All Xbox one models will revive shader model 6 upgrade shortly meaning PS4s will be running the worst textures in gaming. Sorry pony gimp.

    • C. Hoffer

      OMG.
      You make about as much sense as someone on LSD.
      If you have a problem with Nioh, maybe you should talk the the developers and ask them why they used such a garbage engine and how come they couldn’t do what the other developers can. Talk about morons…lol

      I’ll bet your one of those people that made the following statements and swore up and down they would see amazing improvements so that the One/S would be so much faster than the original PS4…which did not happen.
      BS info incoming below:
      BS 1: Xbox One has will have better hardware than PS4 (prior to release) because Microsoft won’t let Sony beat them.
      BS 2: Xbox One will be substantially faster than PS4 when it ‘gets’ DX12
      BS 3: Xbox One will be substantially faster than PS4 when the ‘extra core’ is unlocked
      BS 3a: (almost forgot) Xbox One S will be substantially faster than the One
      BS 4: Xbox doesn’t need to do FP16x2 and the Pro just “can’t” have that feature because the other video cards I can buy right now don’t have it.
      BS 5: Xbox Scorpio won’t be held back by the architecture of the One/S when it comes to game programming.

      Any of the above ring a bell? ahahahah
      Isn’t it time for another needle?

    • Rasta4

      Errr…too much fan troll drivel.
      Don’t read fantroll books of drivel.
      Let me summarize…Xbox one S upscales all games to 4k, OG PS4 does not. All Xbox one models will be receiving shader model 6 upgrades. Ps4s will not. PS4 “pro” is an upscaler like Xbox one S with some games as low as 720p. Scorpio is a native 4k machine. Sony consoles will have the worst textures and resolution in gaming and you are a bit delusional.

    • Dougdec92

      The ps2 had worse textures compared to the OG Xbox specwise but we will need an upgraded Hubble space telescope to find where ps2 left it in the dust, the scorpio is coming, let’s see if graphics beats great games cos I don’t see PC having the best exclusives upon all the 8+ tflops GPUs in sli

    • C. Hoffer

      the original Xbox was definitely the more powerful system but devs choose to only design for the PS2, where all the money was. 🙁

    • C. Hoffer

      I’m trying to understand the sheer level of marketing gush you are dumping.

      The Xbox One/S can’t do anything useful. Its true market is a fast 720p/60fps system. “Upscaling” you refer to is pure marketing drivel that the M$ ever hopeful fans thrive on. lol

      As for the new Shader Model 6 idiocy – OMG. You don’t even know what that is. If you did you would not be waving it like some flag of pure performance boosting power.

      FYI – Shader Model 6 is the part that was missing from DX12. M$ should have release it with DX12 but it wasn’t ready yet. It is a nice upgrade to the shader system that ALL DX 11 & 12 feature level GPU’s (includes PC’s and both GPU Mfg’ers) can take advantage of. It is STILL not up to feature parity of Vulcan. There are a few features present that will require a new GPU (not yet on the market) to take advantage of.

      And yes…you absolutely sound like one of the fans pushing *extra core unlocked*, *One S* will be totally faster than PS4*, *M$ is adding DX12 it ONE/S*, and their BS stories that amount to nothing.

      As for the Pro not doing upscaling…..what the heck are you even talking about?????? Upscaling has zero to do with anything.
      Can I use a Pro on a SUHD 4K TV or HD TV? Yes.
      Would I use a Pro with a monitor? No, I’m not that stupid as their is no monitor on the market that will give me the performance I need/want at 4K.
      Will the Pro display 1080p on 4k? Yes.
      Will the Pro display 4k on 4k (checkerboard or native)? Yes.
      Issues with Pro? NONE.
      Issues with One S? OMG…can’t play anygames without it choking at ANY freaking low resolution (720p, 900p, 1080p).

    • Rasta4

      Didnt read little twit

      4k 60fps gaming vs an upscaling gimmick as low as 720p.
      Back compat vs no back compat.
      Xbox gamepass vs PSnow
      4k bluray vs nothing
      Superior multiplats vs inferior multiplats
      Single player hack n slash trade ins (coming to PSNow) vs multiplayer gems with infinite replay value.
      55 million peasants…It’s hilarious.

    • Dougdec92

      Lol, go easy on him

    • Dougdec92

      Here comes the great mathematician

    • Davey681

      Can you say “Nioh is 720p on my PS4 pro”

      You are a mathematician too !

    • Dougdec92

      Nope I played 30fps and didn’t have 720p Steven hawkings

    • Rasta4

      Shall I link digital foundry analysis. ?

    • C. Hoffer

      I’ve seen that DF Analysis.
      Your comments, while technically correct, are misplaced in direction. The Pro/PS4 units are very powerful.
      If this game was on PC’s they would need top tier cards to run it like it should be (e.g. 1080p/60fps solid). Systems like the One/S would not be able to run it at all unless is was 720p with less than 30fps.
      The problem is that Nioh is built on a garbage engine. Like it or not, the reviewer even comments on this point somewhat indirectly.
      Simply put it needs to be re-written. Nioh isn’t the only one like this.
      Several games suffer from the same problems. When the engines are redone suddenly they have substantial look & performance improvements. Andromeda (Frostbite engine) is a good example of only rebuilding a portion of the engine.
      BTW, Nioh is a terrible looking game even when running at the 4k res. I’d rather look at Uncharted, Horizon or Witcher as ‘good’ graphics on a decently new engine.

    • Rasta4

      Not gonna read
      Couldn’t care less what you have to say.

    • C. Hoffer

      TLDR: NIOH IS ON GARBAGE GAME ENGINE. Complain to DEVS.

  • Mark

    Exactly, let’s get this done and over with…..does it have a custom VEGA and Ryzen or not?!

    • C. Hoffer

      Does the Pro?

    • Mark

      Did the Pro launch last year, or does it release this yr?

    • C. Hoffer

      The Pro does have a customized GPU. That’s how it ended up with AMD RPM well ahead of the market GPU’s.
      It doesn’t matter what GPU ships in the box as long as it has at least the capabilities that Sony has in theirs.

    • Mark

      Well yeah I already know that bro. It’ll have Pro features and more. Yes it does matter what GPU architecture is in there. Since the Pro is based on, based on, Polaris with some Vega features, I was merely asking if Scorpio is based on Vega, customized. And Ryzen, customized.

    • C. Hoffer

      I’m curious to know as well but I suspect we won’t find out until it’s released and some does an in depth breakdown.

    • Mark

      Whaddya make of the Scorpio specs? Am I disappointed by the lack of Vega and Ryzen init? Yup. Which leads me to what you just said, that the label doesn’t mean much, but the customization means everything in console. You’re right. I read the report, and dam if Microsoft engineers are genius, from the upclocked GPU, to the “Vapor” based cooling system, to the fact that the CPU has been freed up to do massive draw calls, cuz DX12 API is implemented right into the GPU logic. How they’re getting Forza to run 4k 60fps locked, with 4k assets and headroom for higher settings is…..just insane

  • Dougdec92

    A great day for the industry and actually and hopefully a worthy competitor , for Sony has been way too lonely, I just pray that on Thursday, they do their world a lot of good, a 3 yr truckload worth of good and don’t do a switch on their install base, goodluck and I’m still waiting for a ryse 2, your call Xbox, don’t mess this up

  • LifeOnMars

    The only information I want is how much is it going to cost and how many games will it have. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b42ed47a7744762425904e8399bef43ad30f99b0d539b75e1383ccdfe7628007.png

  • Mr Xrat

    So much for that reveal event Xgimps begged for for months on end. Wonder what happened to make some actual facts for this upgrade to be announced in this fashion. Trying to head off some unfortunate leaks DF got their hands on?

  • Davey681

    Scorpio does native 4k..red dead 2 and battlefront 2 and shadow of war already announced at native 4k…Hmmm but my PS4 pro already does 720p and upscales which is the best. Native 4k is too high. And my PS4 pro doesn’t have back compat….back compat is really bad, And my PS4 pro doesn’t have a 4k bluray since no one watches movies. Just games 24/7 !!
