Nintendo are said to release their next console, named NX, sometime in March of next year. But, is it really a console? What can it do and what is the company trying to achieve with this new product?
Well, people in the industry believe it will be something in between the traditional consoles you can now find on the market and mobile gaming devices. It is very similar to a tablet, looking like the controller of a Wii U, with inputs on both sides of its screen. The difference is the fact that these inputs can be detached and used by two separate users for multiplayer gaming purposes. The device can also be connected to HDTVs. The Tegra X1 chip, made by NVIDIA, is used for the Shield Set Top Box as well, but the one used for the NX is expected to somehow be more powerful. The NX probably won’t be running on Android, so its users can expect a performance better than the Tegra is currently providing.
We don’t have a whole lot of information thus far, so everybody is more or less peculating what the new device will be capable of, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
