At the E3 event that took place on Sunday, Microsoft has finally revealed their secret hardware for the Scorpio Project. The project will be named from now on Xbox One X and it will cost $499, being the premium option available in the Xbox series. From what we can tell, it will offer more power than the PS4 Pro rival. But let’s have a look at the differences between the two.
Power and Hardware
Definitely, the Xbox One X is going to offer more power than the PS4 Pro. Xbox One X will be offering 6 teraflops (trillion floating point operations per second), in comparison to only 4.2 offered by PS4 Pro. Microsoft’s upcoming product will also provide users with a higher bandwidth (326 GB/s, as opposed to 218 GB/s), which is essential for sending visuals to the display faster.
Xbox also comes with 12 GB of memory, while PS4 Pro offers only 8 GB. This is particularly important for rendering high res textures, since both consoles aim to offer 4K quality. It offers an 8-core processor that clocks at 2.3 GHz. Meanwhile, the PS4 Pro offers an 8-core 2.1 GHz CPU.
Both consoles offer 1 TB storage, but the Xbox One X also has a 4K/HDR Blu-ray player, which you can’t find on the PS4 Pro.
Both consoles look quite similar in size, but the Xbox One X is smaller than the previously released product by Sony. One X is 2.3×11.8×9.4 inches (HWD), and the PS4 Pro measures 2.1×12.8×11.6 inches.
Perhaps the most important factor when it comes to deciding between the two consoles is the price. Microsoft is selling their own version of 4K gaming for an extra $100, which is kind of hard to top. Meanwhile, the Xbox One X might turn out to be more expensive, but it remains to be seen.
