Rumor : Xbox Project Scorpio to Feature 4K Game DVR

scorpio

Any info on the much anticipated Project Scorpio is being welcomed by fans at this point so here’s some for you!  Windows Central is reporting that through their sources, they have learned that Scorpio will feature an internal PSU (Power Supply Unit).  While that may not come as a surprise given the Xbox One S’s PSU, they additionally reported that Scorpio will offer full 4K/60fps game capture and streaming.

In Microsoft’s efforts to make Project Scorpio a true 4K system, it will also feature HEVC and VP9 codecs for decoding 4K streams for things such Netflix, just like the Xbox One S. It will also leverage HEVC for encoding 2160p, 60 frame-per-second (FPS) video for Game DVR and streaming.

Our Take

As we always mention, we don’t like to comment on speculation or rumors here at SG.  We only do so when the source is considered proven and reliable (which in this case he is).  Also, we will always label the article as just that ; a rumor.

That said, if true this is excellent news for fans……and for hard drive manufacturers.  4K/60fps streaming and content sharing would be excellent and it would truly benefit the Scorpio in being able to share content at the same rate in which it can be played (thus matching games in their native performance).  Of course, 4K streaming requires a substantial amount of bandwidth while 4K videos require a substantial amount of storage.  It seems Phil Spencer’s quote of this being a “Console for the core gamer” is proving to quite true.  We’ll share more as we learn it.
