Nintendo NX Tech Demos Need “Cutting-Edge Chips” To Run On PC – Rumor

It’s a step in the right direction.

There still isn’t a lot known about the Nintendo NX but there are some new rumors floating around about the power of this new console. One of the things that has kept the Wii U from reaching its full potential is that the hardware simply wasn’t strong enough to compete with the PS4 and Xbox One. If these new rumors, about demos only being able to run on PCs with “cutting-edge” chips it would mean that the NX might indeed be a stronger console than Nintendo has worked on before.

This report comes on the heels of another report that the NX is going to be using top of the line hardware. The Wall Street Journal is the one leading the charge about the demos being done on some rather high level PCs. “Several people who said who have seen a demo said what they saw is impossible to run on a computer without a “industry-leading” or “cutting-edge” chips. Cutting-edge in what way, they refused to elaborate. And an important thing to remember, probably you know well already, is that chip specs won’t be finalized until much closer date to the release,” Takashi Mochizuki, the author of the original article WSJ reportedly stated to Nintengen.

The fact that the people in the know won’t elaborate on just what cutting edge means is certainly interesting. It’s possible that Nintendo has sworn these people to secrecy. Maybe those in the know aren’t really sure just how much of what is being tested is going to go into the finished product. Whatever the reason, Nintendo has done a very good job of not letting anyone know just what this console is going to bring. It seems we’re moving a bit closer to learning just what the NX has to offer.

    Maybe its running on cutting edge PC hardware now then it’ll get downgraded to run on the NX or the game is just horribly unoptimised so needs powerful pc hardware to brute force it

    the last Nintendo hardware I bought was the super Nintendo….
    not that i’m going to buy their new hardware either but it would definitely be interesting to see what they pull out the hat this time around. maybe it would be so powerful it forces this gen to be much shorter than anticipated…

    This is how it went down a few months back.

      legit or made up?

      Stills from a video that Nintendo blocked off on YouTube. Someone had recorded the private reveal with their cell & posted it @ the time.

      Someone made a fake video and then filmed out with a phone to make it seem legit

      thanks for the update.

      I’d say made up. “Jaguar”? Fo realz? That, to me, is the giveaway.

      I don’t know why you linked this. I’m aware of what Jaguar is. I find it hard to believe they are using such an old chipset for their system. I mean, a low-power chip will be needed if it is the hybrid people are speculating it will be, nut such an old one, to me, is a dead giveaway those screens aren’t real.
      No Puma? Strange.

      well puma is exactly the same as Jaguar except it fixes up electron leakage more
