If Nintendo NX Uses The Tegra X1, It Could Be Thought Of As “A Turbo Powered Last Gen Console”


Yesterday, a report from Eurogamer revealed some new details about the Nintendo NX, the upcoming new Nintendo console launching next year in all regions. According to Eurogamer's sources, the NX will be a hybrid console powered by Nvidia Tegra technology, which will make the console more powerful than the 3DS and the Wii U consoles.

A few hours ago, Digital Foundry took an in-depth look about the rumored Nintendo NX specs, noting how the console is not designed to go toe to toe with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If the Nintendo NX will use the Tegra X1, it could be thought of as "a turbo powered last gen console", which doesn't sound bad at all, considering we are talking about a handheld console and not a true home console. You can check out the full Digital Foundry analysis right below.

As already mentioned, some new details about the Nintendo NX console have been revealed by Eurogamer. Apparently, the console will be a high-powered handheld console with detachable controllers, with some sort of dock station allowing players to connect it to the TV.

On the move, NX will function as a high-powered handheld console with its own display. So far so normal – but here’s the twist: we’ve heard the screen is bookended by two controller sections on either side, which can be attached or detached as required.

Then, when you get home, the system can connect to your TV for gaming on the big screen.

A base unit, or dock station, is used to connect the brain of the NX – within the controller – to display on your TV.

The Nintendo NX launches during March 2017 in all regions. We will keep you updated on the new console as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
