I just read the MSX3 article on ascii.jp and It could really be an very interesting product.
As everyone knows it uses V9990, however... Reading carefully it mentions ARM, Linux, v9990 and Nvidia jetson to keep everything together...
Checking Nvidia Jetsons website, it states:

Quote:

Each NVIDIA Jetson is a complete System on Module (SOM) that includes GPU, CPU, memory, power management, high-speed interfaces, and more. They’re available in a wide range of performance, power-efficiency, and form factors so they can be used by customers across all industries. Jetson ecosystem partners provide software, hardware design services, and off-the-shelf compatible products from carrier boards to full systems, so you can get to market faster with AI embedded and edge devices.

We are not stuck with only V9990, but really powerful piece of electronics

Yes that was made clear early on (though I don't remember Nvidia being mentioned before). The legacy MSX portion of the computer is to be implemented in FPGA so it should work more or less like the original hardware. But Nishi also said something about adding "strong sprites" and "2K and 4K high speed video drawings", so it sounds like combining modern hardware with the legacy MSX portion to improve things like sprite limits. But I'm not sure what he meant. Surely the modern portion of it is not in need of spriting hardware.
