While everyone knew Microsoft’s Xbox One Slim was set for an official reveal today, few expected the tech giant to drop any additional hardware-related news at its E3 presser. But that’s exactly what it did, confirming the existence of the Xbox One’s successor before the slimmed-down version of the console even hits retail. Dubbed Project Scorpio, the upcoming machine is being billed by Xbox chief Phil Spencer as the most powerful gaming console ever. Said to feature an 8-core CPU along with six teraflops of power and 320 GB/s of memory bandwidth, Project Scorpio will “deliver true 4K gaming and high-fidelity VR” right out of the box for a truly next-gen experience — one that offers consistent resolution and frame rates all around. And don’t give up on your Xbox One just yet: Spencer promises that all games and accessories will work across the Xbox One, the Xbox One Slim, and Project Scorpio so that “no one gets left behind.”

Though additional details are still under wraps, Project Scorpio is due out before the end of the 2017 calendar year.
