Microsoft claimed that games can be played at 4K resolution with higher frame rate with an improved graphics and visual fidelity, the console is primarily made for 4K experience which comes with virtual-reality (VR) so no compromising in gaming experience. Phil Spencer who is the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division mentioned in his interview that, on their current consoles games have potential to run at 1080p with higher frame rate (60 frames per sec), but drop in resolution is seen frequently to maintain good amount of frame-rate. Games running on Xbox Scorpio will not face any resolution drops, and during the entire time games can be played at utmost resolution claimed by “Phil Spencer”. Xbox 360 and Xbox One have the feature of streaming their games on PC by switching platforms, so we can assume that Xbox Scorpio will also have this feature too. But note that this feature is only applicable for Windows 10 if you have it then your good to go.
