Nintendo is dropping one hint at a time when it comes to their next console. The NX has a definite name, Switch, a final design and some badass hardware, including NVIDIA’s Tegra-based SoC #todaymagic
The Tegra system on chip includes a GPU that is based on the same architecture as the GeForce gaming graphic cards. You’ll get the console with a revamped physics engine, new game tools and NVN, an API specifically built to bring lightweight, fast gaming to the masses. You won’t be disappointed by the audio and rendering, either, since Switch is equipped with custom software for those, too.
Nintendo Switch will work with cartridges and come with two default controllers that can be detached from the unit and used independently. Once you lift the console from the dock (that charges the console and transmits the game to the TV), the device goes in portable mode. If you’re over at friends, just tell them to get their Switch consoles and you’ll be able to play multiplayer face-to-face.
Until you get a chance to test the device – it’s coming to the market in March 2017 – take a look at it here:
