AMD will be Microsoft's Xbox One Project Scorpio with a new Semi-custom SoC design that is designed to offer 6TFLOPs of GPU performance and run native 4K games and VR applications. 

Microsoft's Project Scorpio will use an 8-core CPU and have 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, though at this time we do not know what CPU architecture this new Xbox design will be using or what memory type this new console will be using. 

Judging by the rendered images shown at the Xbox Live conference  we can see that this new SoC will be making use of either DDR3, DDR4 , GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory, though the capacity and speeds of these chips are unknown.

Microsoft says that this console is the "most powerful console ever" and is set to release in Holiday 2017.  Xbox One games will be able to work on both the original Xbox One as well as Project Scorpio, allowing gamers to continue to play on the original Xbox One even after the release of Project Scorpio.

I am almost certain that it is not DDR3, but right now we do not have any confirmation.

The memory performance that they have talked about is a lot higher than what I would expect from and DDR3 or DDR4.Quote

Isn't the current Xbox One DDR3 and ESRam?

Pretty sure they would go DDR5...Natural step forwardQuote

We've known AMD would be making them, just no specs. It'll probably be G5X memory in order to reach that bandwidthQuote

If anything, I'm surprised Microsoft haven't considered HBM especially since AMD are looking at implementing it onto their Zen APUs. Something for Sony instead perhaps?Quote
