    Anonymous Source at Microsoft leaks Scorpio Graphical Slides Showing Retail vs. Devkit Features

    Logic-SunRise has obtained via a anonymous contact at Microsoft some new info regarding the Project Scorpio, the Next Xbox.
    What these three slides show is mainly already know in regard to the Devkit, but its brings up some questions regarding the final Retail Memory, it was mentioned before the Devkit has 24 gigabytes of GDDR5 RAM, and the Retail would have 12 gigabytes.

    But in the diagrams below, it is shown that the Devkit only has 20gb, and the Retail only has 8gb same as the current Xbox model, speculation is that the 'extra 4gb' is not shown because its an 'permanent module', which the Devkit slide shows as an 'NVMeSSD', but still its totally missing on Retail slide, so either this leak is from an earlier prototype design and not final, or infact Retail only has 8gb.



    Others say, it just not shown as its 'reserved' anyway for the main O.S. and can't be used by game developers so its not needed to be on the graphical slides as its not available for usage so that missing 4 gigabytes does not matter, as its will never be free for your games!
