All is confirmed the Nintendo Switch is powered by stock Nvidia Tegra X1, same chipset used in Shield TV. The most surprising is the retention of 4 Cortex A53 processor cores, which have no use in the Nintendo switch as they can't be operated at the same time when Cortex A57 cores are running due to the ARM big.little configuration setup. http://techinsights.com/about-techinsights/overview/blog/nintendo-switch-teardown/ Nvidia Tegra X1 features 8 core CPU (4 x Cortex A57 and 4 x Cortex A53) GPU is a GM20B Maxell core A comparison to Shield TV. Switch specs on the left, and Shield TV on the right. The clock speeds are reported from Eurogamer, which are very much true. RAM: 4GB vs 3GB CPU: 1Ghz vs. 2Ghz GPU: 3 modes:307.2Mhz/384Mhz/768Mhz vs 1Ghz Shield TV is clocked higher initially in both CPU and GPU, but don't forget Shield TV can't keep these clock speeds up for long, it throttles down to the exact switch's dock clockspeeds. Which further supports a stock X1.
