The Nintendo NX will reportedly use a Nvidia made Tegra SoC and be a portable handheld/console hybrid, where a base unit/docking station can be used to connect the device to a television for console style play. 

This new handheld unit is said to have detachable controller sections which can be used separately from the handheld console when used with the consoles base unit.  

Digital Foundry has reported that multiple sources have confirmed that existing development kits for the Nintendo NX will use Nvidia's Tegra X1 SoC, which is the same SoC that is currently used in the Nvidia Shield Android TV/console and Google's Pixel C tablet.

Up until know it was assumed that AMD would be creating the SoCs for Nintendo's next generation console, but it seems that Nintendo is not interested in providing hardware that directly competes with Sony's PS4 or Microsoft's Xbox One. 

Rumor also has it that the Nintendo NX will be a cartridge based console, cartridges that are 32GB in size if Eurogamer is to be believed. This should be large enough for a lot of modern games but still smaller than a standard Blu-Ray disk. 

Right now Nintendo has officially announced the Nintendo NX, but not confirmed anything other than its mere existence. The new console is set to launch in March 2017.

So if the NX will have the same hardware as Shield TV and the Google Pixel C tablet this means it will come in under 1TFLOP, 365GFLOPS according to the shield specs, Making it a tiny bit more powerful than the WiiU which has 350GFLOPS.

So basically they stuffed a WiiU into a smaller design and added 15GFLOPS Quote

Quite like the idea of it being portable, my poor PSVita got sold due to its lack of support.Quote

I quite liked the PSVita, I had the god of war collection on it and was quite hooked, Shame more games didn't come out for it as it seemed like Sony released it and then forgot about it.Quote

Yeah, I remember them saying about two years ago that it won't be getting first party support anymore, then they stopped the YouTube app on it, I ended up using mine just for PS+ games, didn't help most was digital with the price of the memory cards either

Shame, it is a great piece of kit.Quote
