Podcast The Inner Circle also claimed over the weekend that Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry would be fully releasing the console’s technical specifications on April 6. Digital Foundry previously reported on a supposed internal document from last July that claimed that Project Scorpio would be doing away with eSRAM, but that developers would have to continue supporting it as the Xbox One and Xbox One S would still make heavy use of it going forward. The document also says that Project Scorpio will sport a 6 TFLOP GPU, which is substantially higher than the PlayStation 4 Pro’s 4.2 TFLOP GPU.

Project Scorpio is expected to offer native 4K gaming on its launch titles — something that is currently only possible on a handful of PlayStation 4 Pro titles — and could feature an impressive 12GB of RAM, as well as built-in reality support, potentially with the Oculus Rift.

Project Scorpio is expected to launch this holiday season, and will carry a higher price tag than the current Xbox One console.
