AMD may produce processors for Nintendo NX console

There’s one clear fact in the CPU world and it is that AMD is not doing great – performance-wise the company has been behind Intel for years with no hope in sight for things to change. But in one other chip market AMD is turning into a powerhouse. Guess what? We are talking about gaming consoles.

After powering the Microsoft Xbox One gaming console AMD will now likely place its chips in the upcoming Nintendo NX console. There is no official confirmation as of now but there is evidence that something is going on between AMD and Nintendo especially after AMD’s CFO has said “They are going to announce it and then you will find out that it is AMD’s APU that is being used in those products.” Nintendo was not named there but it is likely the company that is hidden within these words.

The thing is that by using an x86-compatible AMD chip Nintendo can make NX games backwards compatible with the Wii U, which the company already launched. This means that Nintendo NX games can be played on the Wii U, which is good news for the owners of these gaming devices.

The Nintendo NX is expected sometime in year 2016.
