    According to the foxconn leak which is covered in my other post, the dev unit actually sport an external gp106/ gtx 1060. Though unlikely in the retail unit, usb c is capable of thunderbolt 3.0 with the right controller, or this could also be a modified version done by some other companies. I really hate it when the major clock boost turns out to be fake, or at least according to foxconn leak.

    You should just wait for Nintendo's announcement in January 13 2017. Do not believe any leaks, really. I don't listen and discussed about rumours and leaks at all. Don't trust them.

    Don't even believe Nintendo's announcement. Wait for the Switch to be in people's hands and fully dismantled and bench marked.


    But that's too far away, so check out the rumors.

    This is not a phone. It's not like we get to run test on launch date.

    Good point. So don't even wait for launch; wait until it has been dismantled and jailbroken and hackers have ported benchmarking tools to it.

    But again, that takes too long. So check out the rumors in the meantime.

    Not even, once it's torn down, we can just read out the serial numbers of all the parts

    That only works if the parts are off-the-shelf components already available on other devices, and not something customized to the customer's needs.

    You mean to say that you shouldn't trust Nintendo's official announcement? If so, why?

    Because it's going to go light on the nitty gritty. How much detail did they go to when when announced the Wii U?

    That's one of the major reasons why it failed. Hopefully they learned from their mistakes

    To be honest, I can't remember what the Wii U's reveal was like. :ha:
    Regardless, you're probably right.

    if intel played a hand in it, you could be sure it would skyrocket to like $700-$800
