    Wasn't that pretty much a given, considering the chipset it's based on?

    I wonder if this is just a placeholder name or not. (Probably is.)

    Honestly, this doesn't mean much. Pretty much every high-end cellphone out there is Vulkan compliant but I still wouldn't use one as my main console. So err, yeah, congrats on having a modern GPU, Nintendo? :unsure:

    Another leak of different specs has appeared online last night. Source once again eruogamer....too many leaked spec sheets from the same sources. I am not gonna believe anything or develop any type of enthusiasm. Until i'fixit gets ahold of a retail unit and tears this thing apart, rumors are just rumors!
