There are a bunch of rumors right now circulating regarding Nintendo’s upcoming console, codenamed “NX”. And according to reports from reputable sources, Nintendo won’t be making the same mistake twice by having inferior hardware.
This time, the Nintendo NX hardware will be more powerful than the PS4. Not only that, it seems that the NX will also use the same x86 architecture as the PS4 and Xbox One.
Specs wise, rumors suggest an x86 processor with “top of the line graphics card” that easily pushed 60 frames per second.
An earlier report also suggested that Nintendo has already shipped NX dev kits to third party developers, and that it hopes to launch the console in 2016.
While the PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One, it still has issues running all games at 1080p and 60 fps. For example, the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront runs at only 900p on the PS4 and just 720p on the Xbox One.
