E3 2016 - Microsoft's update to their gaming console known as Xbox Scorpio is packing some serious horsepower, with 6TFlops of GPU performance, an 8-core CPU and more. But what about the VR side of things?

According to Xbox General Manager of Game Publishing, Shannon Loftis, Project Scorpio will allow developers that are working on VR games to hit at least 90FPS. During an interview with Geoff Keighley for the YouTube Live E3 coverage, Loftis explained: "The more power you can put behind your VR rendering, the more you can ensure that 90 frames per second synchronicity, the better experience a game developer can create. We're super excited about it".

Oculus and HTC require 90FPS for fluid VR gaming, and even the PS4 will be pushing 120FPS on the PlayStation VR headset, while hitting 60FPS on the PS4 itself. Microsoft will have to be pushing some serious numbers on the Xbox Scorpio console, but with the help of AMD and their next-gen Polaris architecture, I have no doubt that Microsoft will hit a homerun with their Xbox Scorpio console... and that's saying a lot, from me at least.
