    Tegra K1, snapdragon 810, etc. Any one knows how to put up a functional machine?

    So you have some CPUs by themselves and nothing to do with them?

    Most of these modern chips use some kind of ultra fine BGA which is an absolute pig to solder with the gear that most people have. Still I am sure I could design a PCB similar to whatever reference design is provided or similar to a dev board for the given chip (see stuff like http://www.digikey.ca/product-searc...ion-and-demonstration-boards-and-kits/2622039 and http://www.digikey.ca/product-search/en/embedded-computers/single-board-computers-sbcs/5047549 ). I would want do go down that path rather than something new from the ground up as well to save hassle with programming.

    Most of us have totally no idea about multilayer PCB. Say will you be able to build something similar to the 3ds If I could supply screen(I am not the supplier).

    The 3ds probably had an entire engineering team working for several years, each of which were likely specialists in their fields. Point a gun at me and tell me to do it and chances are I will be able to walk away, I would take that kind of motivation though.
    If you are just trying to flog some chips then perhaps speak to the GCW zero people (though they seem to have gone pretty far down the MIPS path so they might not be able to do much) and the other open source handhelds/emulator handhelds.
