Up until now, AMD was reportedly powering Nintendo's next-gen console, but the NX will reportedly be powered by a new Pascal-based Tegra from Nvidia.
Maybe because It's the handheld, AMD SUCKS at times.
"Maybe because It's the handheld" BINGO!
"Get N or get out" 🤘
Unless they are intentionally misinforming people, Nintendo have specifically said they will not talk about the NX at E3 this year, so that line isn't accurate.
I mean...to public, I don't think they meant to all developers world wide.
POWER - scream the uninitiated and/or nearsighted. Fact is, be it cutting-edge hardware or '''underpowered 39;, Nintendo builds games to work within said hardware's restrictions and constantly - via extremely talented developers - delivers some of the best games of all time. Personally I just ask Nintendo sticks to its guns, because, you can't please all of the people all of the time...FACT.
Yeah I'm, and has been proven (more so with the WiiU but stretching back to the N64 with its cartridges) if you don't have third party support you are dead in the water. Nobody likes waiting around for months at a time for Nintendo's next release.
If its an Android based OS, then Nvidia have experience with their Shield TV and their Tegra based SOC's. Could be quite a decent console in the end.
If this rumour is true it is obviously for the handheld component of the NX. Tegra is designed for mobile and the current as in not new but already available Tegra chip called the X1 coincidentally is about 10x as powerful compared to the Vita.
They need to get their software on a decent schedule. Nintendo games are fire but they are far and few between. If they can't get ports from 3rd party then they don't have a choice in the matter. They need to support their own hardware more efficiently.
We have to take this with a grain of salt guys. Remember this is a positive Nintendo rumor
Who said it was a positive rumor? ;)
If it's a portable device ARM is the only thing that makes sense. It's not gonna compete with the PS4 though because even the best ARM devices right now aren't up to the power of the PS4 and Xbox One.
I find this difficult to believe. AMD has firmly planted themselves within the console market. whereas Nvidia has a heavier focus on PC enthusiasts.
i'm hopping its raw performance closer to Drive PX2
Like I said folks. Contradiction.
