Xbox Project Scorpio Will Have Internal Power Supply

Xbox Project Scorpio Will Have Internal Power Supply

According to Windows Central, the Scorpio console will not be coming with a Power Brick, a feature that has awkwardly existed since the dawn of the original Xbox, though the Xbox One S managed to do away with it as well.

It's a big year for Xbox.

This is something the Xbox One S is already able to do, but more excitingly the sources say the console will also use its HEVC codec for encoding 2160p, 60 frames-per-second video for gameplay recording and streaming.

Microsoft has promised Project Scorpio will be a true 4K gaming system and the strongest console ever built.

This new report also reveals some interesting tidbits about the console's power and capabilities, pointing to just how beneficial having six teraflops under the hood will be.

Beam, Microsoft's streaming service, runs public 4K test streams, so it's unsurprising that the company will be looking to dabble in 4K Game DVR for Project Scorpio.

These are questions that need answering, however, and fans of Microsoft's brand of console gaming are eager to see them put to bed sooner rather than later. As it stands now, with smaller details like the internal PSU being discussed, it would seem that all the bigger ones have been ironed out - meaning Microsoft's new console could be making quite the splash at Microsoft's E3 presentation this summer.

More information surrounding Project Scorpio was released today, giving us a better idea of what Microsoft's new console is going to be.

That's a significant leap above the Xbox One's current streaming standard of 720p and 30fps.
