GN Version 5.0

- NX is based around Nvidia's mobile-orientated Tegra processor
- development kits currently using the Tegra X1 chip found in the Shield Android TV console and the Google Pixel C tablet
- combination of four higher power ARM processors combined with a quad-core arrangement of four lower power cores

CPU: Eight CPU cores (4x ARM Cortex-A57/4x ARM Cortex A53)
GPU: 256-core second-gen Maxwell technology
Media Support: Up to 4K 60fps (h.264/HEVC/VP9)
Display Support: Up to 4K, 60Hz
USB Support: USB 3.0 specification
Manufacturing Process: 20nm

- all Tegra X1 devices shipped to date are equipped with 3GB of mobile-orientated DDR3
- the Tegra X1 in the NX development hardware is apparently actively cooled, with audible fan noise
- the NX may actually end up using the Tegra X2
- no info on screen resolution
