Tech News – Xbox Scorpio (ONE X) Specs Revealed + Samsung’s Cheap 4k TVs + Creator’s Update


Hey guys Brainy here for a brand new video
on the channel and welcome to another episode of Tech News. Keeping you informed on the recent trending
Tech News Topics that you should know about. In this video I’ve got a few interesting
things to talk about so let’s get into it. Microsoft has finally revealed its Xbox Project
Scorpio specs. So here’s what you need to know. Project Scorpio will run at 6 teraflops, ahead
of its main competitor the PlayStation 4 Pro with 4.2 teraflops of graphical power. Microsoft also plans to replace its 8GB of
DDR3 RAM / 32MB of ESRAM with 12GB of GDDR5 memory on Project Scorpio. Also, as for the processor of xbox Project
Scorpio Microsoft is said to be using a custom Jaguar-based processor. AMD first released Jaguar processors back
in 2013, and Microsoft’s original Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 and PlayStation
4 Pro both use chips based on the Jaguar microarchitecture. Even so, the new x86 cores in Scorpio are
31 percent faster than the Xbox One’s. Microsoft’s custom GPU engine on Project Scorpio
runs at an impressive 1172MHz, that’s a big increase over both the Xbox One’s 853MHz and
the PS4 Pro’s 911MHz. Xbox One games should be able to run at native
4K on Project Scorpio. According to the report, all Xbox One and
Xbox 360 games will see a noticeable performance boost. This stands in contrast with the PS4 Pro,
which recently received a Boost Mode that added minor improvements to some PS4 games,
and requires custom patches for significant upgrades to each game. Scorpio also features vapor-chamber cooling
inside, a technology that’s used on high-end PC gaming cards like the GTX 1080. All of this is packed into hardware that’s
described as “compact,” complete with an integrated power supply unit. Microsoft is also unlocking a new spatial
surround sound option on Scorpio, and even existing Xbox One consoles will be able to
take advantage of this. Spatial surround will help in 7.1 setups,
but Microsoft is also adding a proprietary format called HRTF, developed by the HoloLens
team. This suggests the Windows Mixed Reality headset
support for Scorpio will be comprehensive when it’s available next year. Isn’t that interesting. Onto other news, Samsung’s new MU Series
4K TVs are slightly more affordable. Samsung announced the availability and pricing
of its 2017 MU TV series yesterday, which makes Ultra 4K resolution affordable. The screens range from 40 inches to 82 inches
and all also support High Dynamic Range. The series options vary by their feature set,
so the most affordable, the MU 6 Series, only includes Samsung’s Smart TV interface and
its Smart Remote Control, whereas the MU 9 Series includes the interface, remote, an
anti-reflective layer on the screen, and more intense colors and blacks, according to Samsung. The MU 6 starts at $549 while the MU 9 starts
at $1,999. Moving on, it seems that Only a small number
of Windows phones will get the Windows 10 Creators Update. Microsoft is planning to start rolling out
its Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update on April 25th, but not many handsets will actually
receive it. ZDNet reports that a small subset of Windows
phones will receive the update, despite the beta release being open to a number of devices. ZDNet has published a list of the 13 devices
that are expected to receive the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update: Alcatel IDOL 4S
Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL HP Elite x3
Lenovo Softbank 503LV MCJ Madosma Q601
Microsoft Lumia 550 Microsoft Lumia 640 / 640XL
Microsoft Lumia 650 Microsoft Lumia 950 / 950 XL
Trinity NuAns Neo VAIO VPB051
Microsoft hasn’t officially revealed its update list, but the company explained to ZDNet that
not all devices will be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update. “As has been the case with previous Windows
updates, a device may not be able to receive the Creators Update if the device hardware
is incompatible, lacking current drivers, or otherwise outside of the Original Equipment
Manufacturer’s (‘OEM’) support period,” says a Microsoft spokesperson. And that’s all for today.
