The battle between consoles is undeniable between PlayStation and Xbox. This time around, the spotlight is slowly shifting towards the contest between PS4 Pro and the upcoming Project Scorpio. While both systems are innovative and high tech, there are some things that the Project Scorpio beats the PS4 Pro in. Considering that Xbox's console is newer, the PlayStation 4 Pro is already expected to fall behind in some aspects.

For instance, both the PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio allow users to play optimized games at HDR and 4K. However, reports say that Microsoft could be raising the stakes with the Xbox by providing "true 4K". This will be on top of the Project Scorpio's added bells and whistles that the PS4 Pro may not have been able to provide.

As far as specs are concerned, it is quite obvious how much more upgraded the Xbox console is compared to the PS4 Pro. Xbox Project Scorpio's processor is an 8-core AMD custom Scorpio Engine CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz while the PS4's is a 2.1GHz 8-core AMD custom Jaguar CPU. For the GPU, Project Scorpio uses an integrated AMD graphics with 6 teraflops of performance. The PlayStation 4 Pro, on the other hand, has an integrated AMD Polaris Graphics with 4.2 teraflops of performance.

In terms of memory, it is Project Scorpio's 12 GB RAM versus the PS4 Pro's 8 GB RAM. Nevertheless, both consoles have 1 TB worth of hard drive. For the two products' optical drive, the Xbox has 4K UHD Blu-ray optical drive while the PS4 Pro only has Blu-ray.

When it comes to price, there is still no certainty as to how cheap or pricey the Xbox Project Scorpio is. Nevertheless, the past Xbox consoles can also be used as a small guide for Microsoft's pricing for the upcoming Project Scorpio. The Xbox One was introduced with a price of $499 (now only at $249) while the Xbox One S was introduced with a starting price of $299.99 for the 500 GB variant. The PlayStation 4 Pro, on the other hand, is currently priced $399.99.
