AMD Rumored to be Powering Next-Gen Nintendo Console
Henry Reeve / 8 years ago
It looks like AMD will be powering Nintendo’s next generation console, according to the latest rumours. AMD has hardware in all three consoles, the Nintendo Wii U, Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One.
The new rumours suggest that Nintendo will be making some big changes in how it deals with the console industry, where it wants to make a system that is a hardcore gaming machine, but retain what makes Nintendo systems “fun.” This means we could see more NES, and not-so-much Wii. This means Nintendo will most likely tap AMD for a serious chip for its next-gen console, where we could expect a full-blown GPU versus the SoC that we have found in all three consoles.
Exciting times for Nintendo fans!
