The DS, 3DS, Wii and Wii U all offered backward compatibility through hardware. I see no reason why they wouldn't do this on the NX. They will most likely make consumers by a Wii U Gamepad separately, just to keep costs low (for those users who don't have one).

So the answer is 75 Watts, the power draw of the Wii U.

Wii U is a 45nm chip..

If Nintendo went with a 16nm FinFET single chip (apu), they could probably cut that 75watts down by ALOT (like down to 20watts or so).
