Xbox Scorpio Delivers 90FPS in VR, Same as Oculus and Vive, PSVR at 120 FPS?
Microsoft announced the new Xbox One S, the slimmer more powerful, 4K ready Xbox. They also teased an upcoming next generation Xbox console that will be VR ready and will provide amazing VR experience. The Xbox Scorpio teased by Microsoft is claimed to be the most powerful console device of its time and there is little that can compete with it at the moment.
The 6TFlop, an 8-core console seems to be the real deal but the main focus of the console is on VR. According to the General Manager of game publishing, the Xbox Scorpio will enable developers to achieve a minimum of 90 frames per second in virtual reality.
This is what the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive offer as well. But according to reports the PS VR is reaching for 120 FPS. If that is true then Microsoft needs to push further with their Xbox Scorpio console.
It was surprising that even though the Sony press conference was after Microsoft’s at E3 2016 they still made no announcements about their upcoming console. While Microsoft has announced that their new Xbox One S will be hitting stores this August. Sony did not bother changing their presentation at all and just went with game trailers one after the other.
This could mean that Sony has something they do not want to talk about and want to keep it a surprise till the very last moment or that their next generation console has not reached a significant enough milestone for it to be talked about yet.
While we heard rumors about both the new Xbox and the PS Neo before E3, Sony did not give us anything at all. This seems to be very odd considering that they could have opted to tell us something after the official Xbox One S announcement.
With the new Polaris Architecture by AMD I think Microsoft has it all covered and that Xbox Scorpio is something we all should be excited about.
