It is reported that the console has been designed to make newer games playable at 4K resolutions and at high frame rates. The device for high definition images uses 40 high-speed processing cores. And other details that has been shared with websites includes hardware inside the console that will have a central processor with eight cores at 2.3 GHz. By compression, the eight cores in Sony’s PS4 Pro at 2.1 GHz and those in the Xbox one at 1.75GHz.


 
it is obvious that the 40 cores in the graphics unit runs a higher speed than 36 cores in the Sony’s console and 12 in Xbox one. According to Microsoft, “ its new device is capable of handling six teraflops per 2nd –one it claims to have hit.”
Where the Eurogamer estimates that the graphical processing unit inside the Scorpio box has 4.6 times more power than the chips in the Xbox one, and added that just as important as the amount of memory available to games


 
After one demo, a few opinions was posted such as:  
Editor of Eurogamer Oli Welsh said,” that means fast streaming of very high-quality art assets, which will really help at the 4K ultra HD resolutions that Microsoft is gunning for.”  Piers Harding, a games industry analyst at IHS technology, said the powerful hardware would help Microsoft distinguish the new devices from the Xbox One S and give it credibility with gamers keen to get the latest hardware. 


 
While the Seth Barton from game news site MCV said Microsoft still had some key decisions to take with the console. “ Price is the real key here.” He wrote, adding that the hardware shown suggested the cost would be higher than $499. US dollar. He also added.” So we are not closer to seeing how Microsoft is going to turn the silicon into a saleable product.” The company expected to reveal more information including the console’s name, at the E3 games show in June.
