    Although I'm sure many of you have heard the "rumors" of the dev kit specs GovanifY has presented.
    GovanifY's Rumored Specs
    Rumors may not be so far fetched based on the Jetson TX1 dev board:

    A $600 dev board has been available since almost a year ago matching specs identically.

    Although there has been words out there like "custom" when talking about the nVidia SoC. Others say it's the same SoC that powers the nVidia Shield Console (Tegra X1).

    What do you think? I guess time will only tell.

    Really depends how it handles the shared ram. thats devkit specs and probably doesnt run any bits of the OS yet. GTX 1050 only has 2GB DDR5 ram (although faster) I'm expecting gaming performance to run at GTX 950 or GTX 750 and both should run the new Skyrim just fine. It's also using nVidia's custom API which should give devs some really low level power... Hopefully...

    being a console(maybe), it should "play".

    we need 8 GB RAM or more, also why only 32 gb of storage? i was hoping for at least 128 with expandable storage, and being able to have a hdd in the docking

    Is this confirmed yet?

    Also, I may be posting above my head here, but don't cartridges alleviate some of the need for more RAM?

    It would make sense to include a sd slot, they have been using sd cards since the wii era.

    In the past cartridges have added addition hardware. It's unlikely with current consoles being anything recent is the 3DS and Vita handhelds.

    Your a cat!

    Yes that would make sense since this is using a mobile grade SoC that was confirmed by nVidia

    dude, that game run on toasters now days. I could run skyrim almost maxed out on my secondary notebook (look at my sig) before I added the second 4GB ram stick and SSD.
