NeoGAF has been extremely abuzz with rumours surrounding the Nintendo NX, and the latest round of insider leaks suggested that the console will actually be more powerful than the PlayStation 4 “by a noticeable amount”. Nintendo insider Emily Rogers, who does not have a NeoGAF account, has shut down this rumour by stating that the GPU and power levels are wrong.
Here is what multiple sources close to Nintendo are telling me about 10k’s hardware rumors: The gimmick is made up. GPU is wrong. Power level is wrong.” “The specs on NX are good, but a lot of the information being shared in this thread is incorrect.
I was told that NX has good specs, but the info in this thread on the GPU and power level is just not correct. Sorry to burst everyone’s hype.
According to the original leak, which came from user 10k, the CPU, GPU and RAM would all be significantly more powerful than the PlayStation 4. He also went on to suggest that Smash Bros. 4, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Maker and Splatton will be ported to the console. The porting rumour corresponds to what Emily Rogers recently said, that a few Wii U games will indeed by ported to the NX. She did not, however, specify which ones would be ported exactly.As the console is expected to launch later this year, we will continue to see rumours both true and false. The only way we’ll know for sure is when Nintendo properly unveils the console, which might be at E3 2016 or prior that event. E3 will be held in mid-June, so we only have to wait a couple of months.What do you think will the specs of the Nintendo NX be like? Let us know in the comments below.
