Microsoft has already revealed that the Scorpio will run at 6 teraflops, which easily exceeds the graphical power of the main competitor to the new console: The Playstation 4 Pro which runs at 4.2 teraflops.
Though these are just small details, they suggest the gaming company is gearing up for a big year at E3. This includes first party titles like Forza Motorsport 7, Crackdown 3, and State of Decay 2 plus third-party games Red Dead Redemption 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, Madden NFL 18, and the rumored Call of Duty: WWII.
Although there are reports of the Xbox Scorpio having several more first party games planned ahead including Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2, Microsoft still has a lot of catching up to do. The great news here is, it is reported that each game will hit true 4K, something Sony is finding hard to accomplish with its new console, the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Microsoft plans to replace its 8GB of DDR3 RAM / 32MB of ESRAM with 12GB of GDDR5 memory on Project Scorpio. If all of this is true, then expect Project Scorpio to launch with many 4K native video games.
This isn't the first time a pre-E3 Project Scorpio reveal has been teased, though. The a year ago Sony had the upper hand because it launched a bunch of PS4 variants while Microsoft chose to only launch Xbox One S. The reason why Microsoft didn't flood the market with different Xbox One models is because it's working on Xbox Project Scorpio. The console is said to be compatible with all the Xbox One games. The Xbox backward compatibility would also come to Windows 10 PCs.
According to the report, the specs for the upcoming Project Scorpio may include the latest AMD Ryzen processor, if not an older version. It will have a premium design, look and feel, as well as a premium price tag.
