If this guy has a record, I believe him. I expected NX to be weaker than XBO, so this is good news. Anyone who thought this thing needed to be a generation ahead of the other two was out of their minds.
Well, this is new.
I'm just so happy to get any news at all concerning Nintendo's new console and honestly I'm still excited

XB1 CPU >= PS4 CPU
on account of being the same CPU
XB1's is just overclocked
So I'd gamble that NX is between > and >>>

The Wii U was the power of the PS3 & XB360.
The NX will be the power of the PS4 & XB1.
They are just a gen behinde in terms of performance.... its their thing.
It wont matter until the Playstation 5 & Xbox Two launch.
The Wii U came out 6 years later and had:
To be fair, that's hardly bragging rights, PS4 and Xbox One have shitty CPUs.
I didn't think there would be a direct this week, cos I'm a pessimistic dunce.
It will matter from day 1. No one gets excited for a system that's basically the same thing as something else that launched 3-4 years earlier?
Would you be excited about the smartphone that's as powerful as iPhone 5? Yeah it can run the same apps, but so what?
This strategy only works if you have a groundbreaking, earth shattering, stop everything you have to try this type of other aspect to their hardware like the Wiimote was to the year 2006.
PS4/XB1 is crap hardware by today's standards, even Sony is apparently making something double the PS4 for $400 in PS4K, you will have tablets as powerful as the XB1 at least quite soon.
No it will not matter from day 1. As Nintendo does not have good third party support. Not that many will be excited about it IMO. Its not gonna have that big of effect on gamming markets and people are getting uppity over not much IMO. The gaming industry is really stable and not much has changed since the 90's in terms of major players, there has always been Sony and Nintendo and a third company. Sony does well in console relm while Nintendo does well in the handhelds and the third company tries to get market share.
What tablets have been announced that have 1.3+ terraflops of gpu performance and 8 core 1.6 ghz x86 class cpu performance. There are none. ARM cpus even at the same ghz and number of cores will have about 1/3 the performance of a similar x86/powerpc cpu.
The Wii U came out 6 years later and had:
NX will come out 3-4 years later and barring a complete shift in the way Nintendo operates not be that much different.
You forget that Wii U also had 4x more RAM.
At end Wii U has much better stronger GPU with twice amount of RAM than PS3/Xbox 360 but somehow slower CPU and RAM, so Wii U have similar power like PS3/Xbox 360 and even slightly above.
If rumor of NX being ARM is true, this is expected. ARM is kicking ass. Problem is porting will be harder on this new architecture, unless they plan porting mobile games.
And the deal-breaker will be GPU, most precisely, PS4K GPU vs NX GPU. I would bet PS4K would win, since sony wants to leverage VR, which is very GPU demanding.
If it is noticeable, It isn't running on Jaguar or Puma. But 8350 is really wide margin to guess from eight 1.6x Jaguar cores...
"Other devs can't say it so I fucking will go home nintendo. It's servicable at best and I know it for a fact this system is another good mid range pc if we had to compare to something not even a high end mid range pc"
This leaker realy doesnt have a lot of good things to say about the NX
The guy seems a bit biased, by the way. I mean, he's expecting the NX to be a high end mid range PC power. Nobody is expecting that. And I prefer them to keep it cheap. Good mid range PC is enough, because Nintendo games are not that demanding, and if it has the same power as PS4/One, third parties could jump in the NX bandwagon (no excuses now because of console power). Also, the comment about the prize? What the hell? Nintendo is not precisely the company which makes the consoles pricier. WiiU, maybe, because of the Gamepad, which is rather expensive. Another guy implying Nintendo fans are "fanboys" and that we will bit it up for 400$. There's no way the console will cost more than 350 (my bet will be 300, but who knows). Unless Nintendo lost their minds. That's nice. Fuck off. Anybody expecting a one generational jump right now is a bit crazy. There's no point in doing that.
