Wow nintendo, how low can you go? Wtf?
Thing is, no Nintendo console has ever had revised hardware or a slim model, the handhelds sure, but not home consoles. So is the switch a handheld or a home console?
I literally don't know whether to get a replacement for mine, or wait for an updated model, but what if there isn't one because it's a Nintendo home console..?
it's the ninvidia shield!
By the way, is there currently a mobile SoC that is actually more powerful graphics wise than the X1?
Well, the Wii got quite slimmed down... Or trimmed down? I don't know, torn to garbage.
And it kind of was a home console.
Yes they did, they officially reported that it hits 1TFLOP, except they never said it was FP16 so everybody reasonably assumed they meant FP32 since that's the industry standard and it would be grossly deceitful to report any other figure when the competition reports FP32 scores.
I see tons of people saying it's underpowered but c'mon, it's the
Wii Mini and Baby SNES
Except it was a downgrade.
What i meant to say is they never do advertise how powerful their consoles are. Meaning that the main focus and selling point of their consoles wasn't how amazingly well it performs, is was about how fun the games are and how unique the controls are. Not that they never talk about status and specs. Sorry if i didn't make it clear.
A hardware revision still
Can we even call it a downgrade? It look like basic cable.
The wii with no Gamecube support was a downgrade, that..... THING is just a prototype or something. GET IT AWAY FROM ME I CAN'T LOOK AT IT! X_X
that is my view (minus PC because i cant be arsed to buy a new fan) if the switch was just a portable console then it would be epic, nothing like it on the market, but as its a home console thats made portable in a sense its just that, a portable home console.
and nintendo already have issues with devs supporting them and it lacking their AAA titles, nothing will change, it never does thanks to its lacking hardware, so youll end up with yet again the usual nintendo titles

think youll find the wii had a revised model or two.
but what i mean for the switch is when nintendo realize they cant fix issues with just firmware updates, because its using old hardware, theyll release a new version to help fix them by adding better hardware.
I guess it's okay to lie then, or to say conveniently deceitful things, or to withhold the truth to purposely create hype via the media.
Oh yeah my bad, the Wii had a revised model, but it was shit lol even worse than the original!
Wait you mean me or nintendo?
I'll be waiting with a bag of popcorn, you know, like all comparison threads, discussions about specs, Nintendo not being as powerful as X console are essentially nothing but pissing contests
Question: Did anyone here complain when it was revealed that both Xbox One and PS4 used essentially off-the-shelf low-end AMD APUs? Or, going a bit further back, when the Sega Genesis was revealed to have a stock 68000 CPU, which was around 10 years old at the time of the system's release?
Please, take care not to slip over all the salt when going around those threads.
Hi foxi, been a while since i had a conversation with you.
Anyway are you able to calculate the gflops of the given Switch's clock speeds, both docked and un-docked.
I mean Nintendo. Nobody's ever written a correction, Nintendo just sat there while all the media based their pieces on a half-truth, hoping to God that the gap between the Switch and the XBO is small enough to be negligible in third-party support. Now the gap is revealed to be huge and there's no excuse. Prepare for no games and sub-par support, because with these specs there won't be any AAA content coming.
