Are there any games that would honestly need 9GB of RAM?

Yes MMO's and Open World games do for faster loading times.

Be $399.99 and you're going to be mine.

Yes, Witcher 3.

You don't need 9GB to run TW3. It uses just under 7GB. 

I think the ram will help Scorpio run the games more like the PC version. Witcher 3 on regular xbox and ps4 use 5gbs so if the pc requres 7gbs the scorpio version will probably have similar performance to the pc version. Thats just my theory.

Performance has nothing to do with VRAM. They are 30 fps on both consoles cause CPU and GPU were too weak for more.

But if Witcher 3 was to receive Scorpio patch it could employ Ultra details in 4K and probably still 30 fps cap.

Witcher 3 on consoles runs on medium settings, but textures and water are set to high. 900p on Xbox One and 1080p on PS4.

It's actually one of the best optimized games on PC, but console version is pretty good too.

Just under 2 GB VRAM usage on Ultra details and that's with Ultra textures as well. They barely look any better than High textures on PC and on consoles though. Still looks great for 2015 open world RPG, and 4K Ultra would definitely improve the experience, even in 30 fps.



Fingers crossed for some sort of trade in deal that's actually decent. The Scorpio is sounding better and better every day...

Keep dreaming thinking that a $399-499 console Will run 4K and 60 fps native at scorpio.



Really wish this was their next Xbox. Sucks that nothing will be exclusive :/

Will still buy though.

Yes, but you need more ram, if you want to play in 4K with very high settings

actually not a lot of games do but theres a ton that use 5-7GB of Vram.

But on consoles the Vram and System membory is shared and there is almost no game that doesn't use 9GBs of system+vram
So yeah there should be a ton of games that benefit from this and load times should also improve because more can be loaded into the memory.
