Nintendo NX Powered By Nvidia Tegra And Features Detachable Controllers?
Looks like some concrete details about Nintendo NX might finally be coming our way. According to a source of Eurogamer, the rumors circling around over the past few weeks regarding Nintendo NX might be coming true after all. The report by Eurogamer suggests that Nintendo NX will be a very powerful handheld machine with detachable controllers as well as connection support to TV through the main unit or a docking station.
The hybrid nature of the Nintendo NX has long been a rumor but it looks like it might not stay a rumor after all. NX will reportedly function as both a home console as well as a powerful on the move handheld console with its very own display.
The console is expected to have two controller sections on each side of the machine, both detachable for portability.
Nintendo NX Features Tegra Mobile Processor
These sources also seem to confirm the rumor that the Nintendo NX console will indeed be powered by Nvidia’s power Tegra mobile processor. This means that while the NX might be capable of some amazing visuals when it comes to mobile gaming, it might or not be able to compare properly with other home consoles like PS4 and Xbox One.
It will be difficult to properly analyze where NX sits in the next generation console market as the architecture seems vastly different from other machines. The console will also be using cartridges instead of discs like most modern machines.
From the looks of things, Nintendo might finally be ready to officially unveil the device and an announcement is expected in September. Nintendo has reportedly already started setting up its marketing campaign focused on gaming on the go.
Nintendo NX is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2017 alongside the next Legend of Zelda game, in all regions although there is no word on the price tag of the device.
