Here's how Xbox Scorpio makes games look better, even on 1080p TVs

While we've yet to see full games running on Microsoft's Project Scorpio, we've got the next best thing: tech demos. As you might've guessed, the differences between native 4K and 1080p are quite substantial, but Project Scorpio isn't just a 4K machine: regular 1080p HDTV owners will benefit from the console's supersampling which takes a 4K image and downsamples it to fit a 1920 x 1080 display for better visuals.

The Xbox One Scorpio is definitely a highly anticipated console - well, it does boast 4K capabilities, so who wouldn't be excited for it? Guess what? They look really good, and as for that 1080p beetle pictured above, just head on over to Windows Central and play around with the sliders to see the difference that 4K resolution will make.

Even backward-compatible Xbox 360 titles will show improvements, according to a Digital Foundry report from earlier in the month. On the right you've then got a number of adverts, ranging from sponsored DLC for games you might now own (in our console's case, Forza Horizon 3), to Xbox Live Gold, and demos for upcoming games.

The 2017 Xbox Project Scorpio features new 8 custom x86 cores and it is an equitable 31-percent increase in speed over Microsoft's current Xbox One hardware.

On top of that, the director and executive producer of Bethesda disclosed to Glixel that Skyrim and Fallout 4 has been confirmed for the Xbox One Scorpio. Right half: Project Scorpio at 4K on a 1080p display.

Scorpio is set to release in all regions during the holidays this year. In spite of that, the Xbox Project Scorpio will have a Memory Bandwidth of 326 GB/s, a 1TB 2.5-inch Internal Hard Drive and a 4K UHD Blu-ray Optical Drive Experience, US Gamer reported. We still don't know its price, official name or what it looks like, but we expect Microsoft to take the wraps off all of that at E3 2017.

Reddit user Stefvr claimed to have found another possible fix, with other users claiming this method also worked for them: "After going home, pressing RT and Y straight after it started moving around my pins and kept homescreen alive, still not fading to black anymore".
