Essentially, Project Scorpio will improve upon the existing Xbox One in a variety of ways; Microsoft has said it will be "the most powerful console ever". And this is what tends to happen when non-technical people (like myself) try to interpret what words like "teraflops" mean for gaming.
We'll have more on Project Scorpio leading up to the console's E3 reveal.
And one from The Swindle creator Dan Marshall. Inspired by breaking the trend of long generations of consoles with untapped potential, the Xbox team is bringing back the risk of keeping their console more to date with models that adopt these updates that customers want.
Scorpio still uses the base hardware of AMD's Jaguar CPU tech, the same CPUs found in the original Xbox One, though at a much high clockspeed.
Are you excited for Project Scorpio and will you buying the console on day one?
But Microsoft made no mention of any games that it is set to release alongside the new console. For those of you who don't have a 4K TV well there's still good news because even at 1080p the Scorpio will push the games to its limit as opposed to the PS4 Pro requiring you to have 4K TV.
Microsoft's Project Scorpio will sport 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 6 teraflop GPU to deliver games in native 4K, it was today revealed.
Nintendo knows the power of that one game that can sell hardware; the Switch more or less sold out on the strength ofZelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Scorpio will also severely cut down on load times due to the console's CPU boost, along with two other methods.
Microsoft has built the core of the Project Scorpio from the ground up - the engine sitting in the middle of this machine may be the key to Microsoft's console dominance once again.
The great news is, 4K games, can run at 60 frames per second, while only using 66% of the GPU.
Crackdown 3 isn't enough to make an empty year of new Microsoft exclusives look any more enticing.
