    Someone has claimed to taken apart a switch. Looks neat. and tiny.

    Apparently it's considered a leak coming from foxconn, the manufacturer in china.

    • Date code is "1629" in addition to the A2 designation.
    • This means 2016 Week 29 which is around July 2016.
    • UDNX02-A2 is another code printed.
      • This seems to confirm that this IS a custom chip for Nintendo. Considering the Switch was codenamed Nintendo NX during its development.

    Neat. And I guess the airholes really are airholes.

    So, will people now be able to tell if the switch is really that underpowered?

    It at least shows they're doing everything they can lol

    Edit: Since I'm not familiar with mobile chips, what does that ID number indicate?

    looks legit, interesting that the emmc seems to be on a swapable pcb

    depending on how the fw is stored and assuming there is no anti downgrade tools it could be really easy to make a product to backup your initial fw to keep safe incase it ever end up "useful"

    *shrugs* it's a very elaborate hoax if so. Everything about it looks genuine, and nothing seems out of place or incorrect. I obviously don't know for certain, but it would be a really odd hoax if it is one.
