    Here are what is supposed to be the switch specs from a dev unit, of course these are dated from july last year. Remind that this is just a rumor, but i think it matches with that old eurogamer report.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    There are more info about the system features, mockups of the ui and system software and more. Just check out the source for more.

    The fact that it states 4K is supported makes me think this is fake.

    However, it could just mean Ninty hasn't made it available in the SDK...

    Just for video playback. Not on actual games.

    still, i'd take it with a grain of salt. because I think Nintendo would have touted this regardless

    Funny how it says the video ouput as 1080p@60hz and 4k@30hz.
    The main day one system seller is capped 900p@30hz and it struggles to maintain that when it was demoed. Being able to output what the hardware/games are incapable of producing....

    It's just the supported standard. The PS3 also supports 1080p60 video output, yet there's probably only a handful of games that actually run at that resolution and framerate...

    You do know that was an early build of the game.
    We shall see how it runs when launch. Some of the new gameplay video look better then the one they used in the demo play.

    I thought ARM debunked these rumors? It was on their page but they removed it.

    Just denotes that you don't know what are you are talking about...!

    Video playback isn't the same same as videogame running in a system...!


    Nvidia Shield supports 4K...

    I am well aware of that. But what video platforms do they intend to support?
    http://nintendotoday.com/nintendo-switch-netflix/
    AFAIK they don't intend to support any media at launch, thus having those resolutions available is pointless. Eventually media support will likely be added but I doubt the console will have a good enough network card to handle 4k content. Look at how Nintendo cheaped out hard on the 3ds wifi, probably gonna be a similar situation.

    Having one piece of hardware that can do something that the rest of the hardware cannot support is pointless. 4K tvs are all Smart TVs, so outputting media on the switch would a pointless extra step for 4k tv owners.

    If you are going to troll, don't be an idiot!

    Only thing I'm disappointed of is Pascal, but otherwise I'm fine. A stronger Cpu would have raised the price too high. Not to mention the heat and battery.

    Away from this shithole
    Unblock me. I need to talk to you via pm.

    Looking by these specs, if it were back in 2010 and they were leaking the specs of the 3DS I would have fell for that XD

    A very early version using an overclocked X1 to remotely match the final spec.

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

    Remember Foxconn leak? That said it has a 16nm CPU and matches nearly all the spec (if you go by pixel the boarder of the screen does give 6.8'') @TheDarkGreninja So UE4's recommended settings suggest something way more powerful than Tegra X1, correct?
