    Hard to tell since it really was not drawn to scale but it probably will be smaller but who knows it is all conspiracies at this point. Personally I am interested how the processor will work as the Nvidia Tegra processors are quite weak for modern console gaming.

    Even though this is a rumor? The NX cant be this if it can run next gen games like sonic

    Damn if I see it like that, that thing is hideous...

    Hmm, I don't know, mobile CPU/GPUs etc are getting better and better every month.

    The Android device I've always dreamed of... With the tiny issue of it not actually being Android based.

    Hopefully the 'boffins' at Shenghen(?sp) will make a clone quickly enough.

    The X1 still is very bad for console gaming if Nintendo wants to have current powered specs to attract devs but the X1 just isn't powerful enough. Likewise I worry about power consumption on the mobile side as to my knowledge it has not really been used for mobile systems (i.e. tablets) unlike the K1 or Tegra 4 was.

    Yeah, sure they are. How about proving at least 5 times they were?

    It is a good thing that people don't overreact over patents and rumors anymore. It was starting to get old.

    I know as I had been following what Nvidia has been doing on android since the Tegra 4 but still I could be wrong but seeing from what android tv type systems can run i dont think i am too off.
