Nintendo NX Might Be Looking To Output 4K Video

Nintendo will soon release a new console called Nintendo NX that will be capable to play 4k video resolution, a console that new rumors are claiming to be more powerful than the PlayStation 4.

According to a report from Gamepur, speculations about Nintendo NX's specs are rife online, indicating that the console might come with a DDR4 memory ranging from 6GB to 8GB, and an output of 4K resolution. It still not made clear whether the console might come with an AMD chip for its graphics.

However the console box still exists, suggesting that the new machine is looking to advance Nintendo in the competition for a company that is typically behind when it comes to raw specs.

According to Pocket-lint, Nintendo NX might come in two parts, meaning a user can play either in their house or on the go, which suggest that the console could be portable. The upcoming machine is believed to cost around $400, where previous consoles used to range at $200 to $300.

Nintendo hasn't confirmed yet the precise date of release, but some suggested that it will be making its announcement sometime this first half of the year through a Nintendo Direct online video stream.

Last year, president of Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima told Time in an interview assuring that the Nintendo NX will be a follow up of the Wii and Wii U consoles. Kimishima said, "It's something unique and different. It's something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base."
