Nintendo NX To Be 3-4 Times Stronger Than Wii U, Will Support Modern Engines Like Unreal 4- Report

It sounds like third parties won't have trouble with the new system, for once.

One of the perennial questions that surrounds Nintendo’s upcoming NX system is just how powerful it will be. It’s never a given that Nintendo’s system will have parity with other current systems on the market in terms of specs to begin with, and with the NX also reportedly being a handheld-console hybrid, the question of just how much power it’ll have stuffed into it becomes murkier.

However, as per a recent report by Direct Feed Games, the NX’s power really shouldn’t be an issue. In a recent discussion that he had about the NX, he shared some apparently insider information about the system. He shared, for instance, that the system will be 3-4 times more powerful than the Wii U, and that it will support modern engines and development pipelines like Unreal, so third parties shouldn’t have issues porting their games. He also confirmed that the system will be powered by the NVIDIA Pascal Tegra, and that while it may be technically capable of 4K and HDR, Nintendo won’t be making a push for either of those.

The Nintendo NX is scheduled to be launched worldwide in March 2017, and it is due for a reveal later this month.
