While the Xbox Scorpio’s selling point will be its compatibility with, and ability to fully output natively for, 4K TVs, it will still run on 1080p TVs, and Microsoft has indicated that even 1080p TV owners will see a difference in image quality while playing on the Scorpio.
Windows Central has obtained a series of images that show the extent of these improvements that will be apparent even on traditional HDTV panels. Apparently, there will be a lot of enhanced and improved clarity, so even if you are not necessarily planning on getting a 4KTV, you may want to consider a Scorpio for yourself- if you’re an Xbox fan, obviously (or if you just want the best looking versions of multiplatform games).
The images are below. There’s a guide to each image that follows:
