With Sony’s offering having a confirmed announcement date of September 7 and the Xbox Scorpio likely to appear sometime in late 2017. As for their specs and features, here’s everything we know about them.

Everything we know about the PlayStation Neo

If you had been a visitor to this year’s E3 event in June, hoping to see Sony unveil the PlayStation Neo, you would have left disappointed as the Japanese giant decided to refrain from spilling the beans at that time.

However, since then, Sony has become a little more open, confirming that the PlayStation Neo was indeed a real device and that it would officially unveil it on September 7 and finally put frenzied gamers out of their misery.

Virtual reality on PlayStation Neo

Everything we know about the PlayStation Neo and its specs, features, and design has come about because Sony saw the need to improve upon the specifications of the first PS4 before the PlayStation VR headset launches in October.

Now that Sony has created this new console variant specifically to accommodate its future as a VR gaming pioneer, the world is waiting with bated breath to see what the two devices provide when combined.

Hardware specs

According to tech site Giant Bomb, its multiple unnamed sources are providing it some serious hardware specs for the PlayStation Neo. These specs are as follows: an eight-core AMD-Jaguar CPU, overclocked to an even faster speed of 2.1Ghz, and 8Gb of GDDR5 RAM.

Just like the previous model, which has also been overclocked to reach a data transfer rate of 216Gps. The GPU (graphics processing unit) has also been beefed up from 800Mhz on the PS4 to 911Mhz on the PlayStation Neo.

Does this mean that the PlayStation Neo will be less powerful than the Xbox Project Scorpio? No, not at all, as you would have to go back all the way to 2001 and the launch of the first Xbox to discover a device that was more powerful than Sony’s offering at the time. However, only time will tell if this is the case.
