    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?

    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.
