How Much Would a PC Cost with Specs similar to Scorpio.

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - How Much Would a PC Cost with Specs similar to Scorpio.

Could help us figure out the price of the system. I'm not refering to the Scorpio capabilities because i understand that a PC able to play games in 4K are very expensive but im refering to a PC with similar specs ta  Scorpio, and wondering how much that would cost.

It comes out Q4 this year so the prices should go down and MS probably got some parts for a lower rpice so it could possible be $50-500.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if its more than $450.



Digital Foundry said it would cost around $500 right? Seems like they would be the second best (after Microsoft/xbox) source for that info. They literally have access to it and every little part possible.

You need an 8GB GPU as that's the amount available to games on Scorpio.
RX480 8GB GDDR5 is $245 or $60 extra, so $620 atm.
The first 4K UHD drives are out in Japan now, can't find a retailer price though, $270 on EBay
Plus a controller, hdmi cable, headset, packaging, OS

That's incorrect. 8 GB is reserved for developers, and it's shared between the CPU and the GPU instead of being reserved for the GPU alone. Thus, even less than 8 GB for the graphics card is enough.

Damn beat me to it! I'd change the 480 to 8gb though.

Add in Windows 10 from Kinguin for $20-30sh and you are golden!

Although that CPU is pretty overkill considering how the jags perform but all in all, you pretty much nailed it.

Much more. As a common x86 CPU isn't able to drive the GPU as efficient. Even DX12 which features multi-threading for this doesn't help PCs:

To come close to understand what this new instruction set means, compare those vector instructions like SSE. Those gave huge performance gains.

Moving DX12 driver stuff into silicon gives even more gains – as fewer instructions on the CPU side means less use of precious CPU cache. And as the GPU is even earlier ready to compute, this means that the GPU has more time to render and the CPU has more time for the game logic.

Lets hope that Microsoft didn't patent it a way no other can use it too. That stuff is perfect for the next version of the Nintendo Switch to use less power for the same graphics...

BTW: Microsoft has a big advantage. They could sell the same console power for less money then Sony. From Scorpio on for the next 25 years... .

They made up for the 12GB GDDR5 with the 12GB DDR3, so not really much price difference. The 4k BD drive would be more, but if they use the same drive between the XB1S and Scorpio, that will save them a lot with mass production, so maybe $100, $150 tops instead of $270. Plus all the accessories correct.

It puts you closer to the $600 mark anyway. They should be able to do it for close to $500 with mass production and direct purchasing. The mass production for Scorpio won't be anywhere near the XB1S numbers though, so $499 is a pretty good prediction for a retail price without taking much of a loss.

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
