“NX is Nintendo handheld with removable controllers and Nvidia soc ‘




The upcoming Nintendo NX is a handheld console, which features removable controllers and can be pricked into a dock to play games on a TV. The device uses an Nvidia soc, possibly the same Tegra X1 as the Nvidia Shield Android TV console.

The news about the upcoming Nintendo console has not been officially brought out, but multiple sources have to Eurogamer told. Nintendo NX gets its own screen and will therefore work independently as a handheld console. On both sides of the screen are controllers; which can be detached and then use them separately. The portion of the NX that remains can be slid into a dock that is connected to a TV. Euro Gamer also shows a sketch of the device, presumably this is made on the basis of descriptions that has received the Web site.

Nintendo portable NX

According to anonymous sources makes the Nintendo NX use of cartridges for games. Are possible which is limited to 32GB and would thus also the games are limited to that size. It is probably also possible to purchase games digitally and downloaded, but it is not known how much storage will the device.

The sources tell Eurogamer that Nintendo NX will use a Nvidia Tegra SOC and the current devkits use the Tegra X1. Soc which is also in the Nvidia Shield Android TV console and the Google Pixel C tablet. The Tegra X1 has four 64-bit ARM Cortex A57 cores and a GPU based on the Maxwell architecture with 256 cudacores. That is one third of the number of cores on a Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 video card. It is currently one of the fastest GPUs for mobile devices, he is more powerful than the GPU in the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Regarding power must, however, recognize the multiple SOC consoles of the current generation. However, the NX should be able with this hardware to show nicer pictures than the Wii U.

Digital Foundry focuses on the use of the Nvidia Tegra X1 soc and knows to using a source reporting that the devkit Nintendo NX has an active fan to keep the chip cool. That would be on to indicate that the final version will have a new soc which is more economical, possibly the Tegra X2. That chip could possibly be faster, but because developers currently use the X1 to develop their games, the expectation is that there will be large differences in performance.

Nintendo will not go across Eurogamer on the rumors. The company says not to provide further information than that Nintendo NX in March 2017 appears . It was announced earlier this year during the discussion of the annual figures. At the time, Nintendo NX called a “completely new concept and has avoided the word ‘console’. Probably Zelda: Breath of the Wild a launch game that simultaneously opens with the NX. The new Zelda game is also coming to the Wii and was extensively demonstrated at the recent E3.
