Nintendo NX to use a Pascal-based Tegra chip?

Posted on Saturday, May 14 2016 @ 11:12 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Anonymous industry sources confided to TweakTown that the hardware of Nintendo's next-gen console will be quite a surprise. While the current-gen consoles all feature AMD-based chips, the next Nintendo console will reportedly have more in common with a high-end tablet than a desktop computer. The sources claim the Nintendo NX will use a Pascal-based version of NVIDIA's Tegra SoC:
Nintendo's NX console using a NVIDIA design is also a huge win for NVIDIA over AMD, and symbolizes the shift from a much bigger CPU/APU or GPU design, to a mobile SoC design. It could also mean that the rumors of a portable Nintendo console, were right after all. We don't have anything in the way of technical specifications, other than the news that Nintendo will use an NVIDIA Tegra processor inside of their next-gen NX console.
More details may be revealed at E3 2016 in June.
