During AMD’s Quarterly Financial Conference Call, CEO Lisa Su talked about Microsoft’s Project Scorpio and revealed that AMD consider it one of their “design wins” to help make Project Scorpio a 4K and VR compatible console.
“Last Quarter at E3, Microsoft announced two new members of the Xbox One family, powered by AMD. The Xbox One S is the slimmest Xbox console ever, and the first to support HDR. The system is expected to go on sales in the coming weeks.
Microsoft also announced their next-generation game console code named Project Scorpio for the 217 holidays. Project Scorpio is designed to be fully compatible with existing Xbox One software, while leveraging AMD leadership gaming technology to create more immersive 4K and VR gaming experiences. Project Scorpio is one of the semi-custom design wins we communicated previously”
Lisa Su was also asked about Scorpio’s pricing but refused to comment on that. This is in line with business practices as it is Microsoft’s right to disclose that information.
“We wouldn’t disclose anything that’s incrementally more than what our customer has disclosed, so I think Microsoft has talked about their goals with Project Scorpio; I think we are in support of those goals. Given the performance level, you would imagine that there is more capability on chip, but I wouldn’t want to go more than that.”
AMD also shared a presentation slide detailing some of their plans for the next 3 years.
