It would not be a surprise to see Nintendo promoting its NX handheld and dropping the DS brand. Rumor has it that Nintendo NX is using Nvidia hardware. To be more specific, it is using a modified version of X2 aka parker.

The chip packs enough power for the handheld to act as a console when connected with a HD TV.

The same one used for Nvidia’s flagship GPU models – GTX Titan X, GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060.
