Xbox Project Scorpio has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now its arrival has just been confirmed by Microsoft. The Redmond giant has recently sent out invites to the press for an Xbox event scheduled to take place in June, but then Microsoft also detailed more in a blog post that was published earlier today.

Xbox head Phil Spencer writes the following on Xbox Wire: "We designed Project Scorpio to be the best console to play the blockbuster multiplatform games from our publishing partners, made it easy for recently released titles to upgrade to true 4K and for beloved, backward compatible titles to play better than ever before."

Although not officially confirmed yet, the specs of the upcoming console have been unveiled by various recent leaks. According to the specs provided to developers by Microsoft, the console features a 4K Blu-ray player and its GPU is about 4.5 times more powerful than the one inside the Xbox One, but also around 1.4 times faster than the graphics chip inside the PlayStation 4 Pro.

We will get back to the Xbox Project Scorpio as soon as we hear anything new, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
