There is no mention of Jaguar or Puma in the CPU spec, even though Eurogamer said it is based on Jaguar. There is no mention of Polaris or GCN in the GPU spec, even though Eurogamer said it is based on Polaris. Its written down in such a way, that what stands out, is the difference in numbers between the two, and Scorpio easily wins that comparison.
There is a reason for that. Because that is just an educated opinion. We won't know 100% untill later.
Then why say Scorpio uses an evolved version of the Jaguar core in the video? They even compare it to its similarity with XB1. If its Puma then why not just say its a semi custom Puma? They obviously don't know 100% yet what it all entails, but if it wasn't Jaguar at its core, they wouldn't bother mentioning Jaguar at all. Same with Polaris. They mention that too.
I'm not bashing the hardware at all, its clearly strong for what it is and highly engineered, but the fact that the direct comparison to Pro leaves out Jaguar and Polaris just seems quite convenient.
Its just a smart thing all around. So many people were starting to think mobile Ryzen and downclocked Vega, me included, and putting that rumor to rest was important well before the full unveiling and E3. By not actually putting Jaguar, Puma or Polaris in the specs description, it not only stops people who think they know tech, from thinking its just the same old slow tech of the past, but also leaves the door open to tech illiterate people who heard it was some new high end Ryzen and Vega parts, potentially leaving them all dissapointed otherwise.
My main point was XB is at least getting back on the right path and seems to have a plan now, based on the road ahead itself, and not just what they want to turn that road into. This should hopefully stop the bleeding at the very least and allow them to finally make some headway. They can't win the gen, but making a strong effort to attempt a comeback in the 7th round should at least gain them some of that lost respect back.
