Microsoft is expected to unveil tomorrow at E3 the new generation of Xbox gaming, now known as the Scorpio project, but until then we have confirmed information about the amount of random memory allocated to games.
According to Mike Ybarra, vice president of gaming platforms at Microsoft, the 9 GB of RAM in the next Xbox will be dedicated to games out of the 12 GB owned by the device.
The remaining 3 GB will be dedicated to the operating system, multi-tasking, running applications in the background and any non-gaming tasks. So there are 9 GB of GDDR5 memory available for gaming, and if not fully utilized, the rest of the allocation will cache the content faster than before because it is preloaded.
In the initial review of the device demonstrated great capabilities in dealing with games in 4K quality and at 60 frames per second, but now with additional GB of random memory means further improvement in possibilities.
It is worth mentioning that the current generation of Xbox One has an 8 GB memory of the old type GDDR3 compared to the great improvement in the new device, which we will know all the details about it in the participation of Microsoft tomorrow.
