    Supposed leak from Chinese manufacturer.
    cortex a73 (I said it in another thread). Also a really insane gpu with 900+ clock, unknown number of cuda cores, and much more. The dock is just for charging and extra power (as in electricity).
    This is top of the line 2016 tech, people.
    Edit:
    1) The chip uses a73, which can put snapdragon 821 to shame. It's also faster than first gen denver.
    2) Gpu clock is not very good (921MHz), core count is unknown. Chip size is around 100 mm2. But could be on par if not better than a10x.
    3) The dev unit has egpu solution with possibly intel involved, using a gp106 (gyz 1060)
    4) The dock is only for charging, cooling and ports.
    5) The fans are in the tablet.
    6) Better than expected battery capacity, 4200 mAh.
    7) No UFS-ii, only emmc. SD card slot is behind a stand on the left (screen is front)
    8) Joycons have blue and orange variant.

    For me: this console is already in the bag! Forget PSPro and XbonerS.

    The hype is real for this one just based on the official presentation.

    The first interesting feature is NVLink, a bandwidth improving inter-chip communication solution that should solve the bandwidth problem faced by multi GPU platforms. It is based on PCIe 3.0 but it can make things significantly faster, 5 to 12 times faster according to Nvidia. This is a huge gain and it should bring communication between the CPU and GPU to a whole new level.

    Pascal also packs 3D stacked memory that is in the same chip packaging and it is about a third of the size of a PCIe card. It will launch in 2016, it will follow Moore's Law and deliver 20 Teraflops per second. Just for comparison, the original Tesla launched back in in 2008 was a 1TFLOPS unit, while Maxwell maxes out at 12TFLOPS.

    Guess I need to check if that baidu user is a troll though maybe I should be able to find a friend in Foxconn. Has been a while since I used baidu's forum.

    Also Switch is not more powerful than a PS4 Pro.

    A full fat gtx 1060 is more than capable of trashing ps4 pro(though the rumour does seem to be a bit much.), and being generations ahead in both tech and manufacturing.
    Edit: Sorry, that joke is specifically for Americans.

    You don't know because there is no evidence.. just yet.

    Anyway, this news...well, it's possible that it's not true. I will wait for Nintendo in January of 2017. I hate rumours!

    Of course there is. It's called common sense.

    It doesn't say anywhere that Switch uses a frickin GTX 1060.

    I'm sorry, but the day the Switch is more powerful than the PS4 Pro, is the day Nintendo buys Apple.

    I read the original post in Chinese, which suggest a chip around 100mm2. That is half of gp106.

    Damn it, no ps4 class performance.
    OP seems to be working in Foxconn.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Extremely stable frame. Just not insane performance when docked.

    Yes, they do. But what you heard is not half as horrible.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Also Blue and orange joy cons.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Switch has fans and battery in the tablet. The bottom is very easy to scratch, so be careful.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    SD card behind the stand. Only usb c on the bottom, and definitely no thunderbolt.
