A shame that there will be no videos nor new photos... we want to see it in action :P this is such a tease before E3.



Key Points:

- Native 4K & Locked 60FPS & Dynamic Weather

- Two days to port to Scorpio

- Forza 6 was running with 4K assets and same high LOD car model for all cars.

- GPU usage 55%-70%

- Settings cranked up to PC Ultra causes GPU usage to hover around 88% with some spikes to 100%

- 4K Assets only hit the GPU by 1%

- Other developers are seeing the same results.

- Wasn't running on final hardware.



Damn this is a one sided Poll. How about making a poll about the expected price of scorpio?

Some more good content drom Digital Foundry, cannot wait to start playing on the Scorpio ^^

What prices do you think should be in the poll? I'm not very knowledgeable with all this tech stuff and pricing

Might do a few Scorpio polls, I was going to do one around "Are you happy with the specs" but well it's VGC and I don't really trust VGC polls

 

Edit - I'll let Shika handle it since he runs the polls anyway and knows more than me



$400 (no game)
$400 (with game)
$450 (no game)
$450 (with game)
$500 (no game)

Really no point in going higher or lower than that, MS isn't going to sell Scorpio at a huge loss and they're not going to sell it at a high price where nobody will buy it, especially since PS4 Pro will likely drop to $350 this year.

VGC polls usually go like this.....

"Are you happy with the Scorpio specs?"

Yes, They are strong enough - Xbox fans

No, Not high enough- Sony fans

Don't care/See results - Nintendo fans

and ask the reverse of...

"Are you happy with PS4 Pro specs?"

Yes, They are strong enough - Sony fans

No, Not high enough  -Xbox fans

Dont care/See results - Nintendo fans

Yep that and VGC polls are easy as hell to multiple vote in and you don't need an account makes me not really trust them for serious polls

I swear one time I voted like 5 times in one of XBE's polls within a few days

Edit - That was accidental too, the site just let me keep voting.



I really think it will either be $400 with no bundled game or $450 with a bundled game. PS4 Pro will drop to $350 this year most likely(maybe even $300 depending on how threatened Sony feels by Scorpio), and none of the hardware in Scorpio is significantly more expensive than what was in PS4 Pro, with the exception of possibly the UHD bluray player (which so far hasn't factored into Microsoft's pricing, XB1 S is $250 afterall). Really the only cost increasing upgrades over PS4 Pro are the faster GPU, 4 extra GB of faster RAM, and the slightly more expensive vapor chamber cooling system and I can't see those adding more than $100 to the cost. PS4 Pro $350 (by the Holiday) + $100 = $450 for Scorpio.
