There are some interesting rumors that are starting to surface regarding Nintendo’s NX console, suggesting that the Nintendo NX graphics may be utilizing a chip which will make it more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One next-gen consoles.
Nintendo are obviously hard at work on their next console behind the scenes, but a recent article published by the Wall Street Journal claims that Nintendo has already given the Nintendo NX software kit to third-party developers to start working on.
More importantly though, the chip included inside the software kit is thought to be “industry-leading chips”, according to sources familiar with Nintendo’s development plans.
These industry-leading chips could be a result of the criticism that Nintendo has faced with its Wii U console not having enough power to compete with Sony and Microsoft’s respective PS4 and Xbox One consoles.
