    Nintendo UK publishes Switch console technical specifications

    Lots of new info about the console but sadly the CPU/GPU description is lacking in detail.
    Read more.

    Let's see what 'customised' means. Hopefully it means a 16nm Tegra X1 variant using Pascal and A73 rather than the current X1 using Maxwell and A57. Realistically, I suspect not.

    3 hours of game time on the battery when in handheld mode, that looks terrible!

    That's the biggest issue I can see, i cant believe they couldn't get more out of it especially as the thing is quite thick, you would have thought you could have got a very big battery in it.

    Everything my sources tell me is the "customized" means a major clock speed decreases for GPU and CPU versus stock (to decrease heat/power draw). No word on die shrink, which would help with the power question.

    If they replace the GPU core with Pascal and the CPU core with A73, it's not X1 any more. And everyone in the know says it's X1.

    X1 is VERY power hungry. Like, hotter and hungrier than an Intel i7-4610Y

    You're a better person than me. I'll happily jump this gun! It runs Breath Of The Wild at 900p max, so it's not going to compete with PS4 for the same games.

    No problem, of course: Nintendo's avoided that for years and mostly done so to the benefit of all. I might we'll get one if more things along the lines of Splatoon 2 appear.
