It looks like someone has managed to get their hands on a Nintendo Switch ahead of its launch, and tear it down. As a result, we now have information on the internals of the system, revealing a modified custom Tegra X1 variant being used in the system, a gigantic battery, and the system’s entire SoC.

It also seems like the Switch will have active cooling, and a 64-bit memory bus. The long and short of all of this is, the Switch, as a portable system, seems to be rather well endowed, and indeed, killer- as a home console, however, as has been previously discussed, it is definitely going to be found lacking.

The Nintendo Switch is due out worldwide on March 3. Are you planning on picking one up at launch? Maybe later? Let us know in the comments section below, and stay tuned for more information regarding the upcoming system.

I used a money making model I stumbled upon online and I am so amazed that i was able to make so much extra income. It’s really newbie-friendly and I’m just so grateful that i found it. Here is what i did…

    The Switch is just a Wii U relaunch, but instead of a home console that can act like a massive handheld, it’s a massive handheld that can act like a home console. Like its predecessor it is too gaudy for a portable and the storage is still too small. They could have at least let the game carts be writable so saves, possibly even patches and DLC could be written to them.
