Nintendo Switch Specs LEAK: Console Could Be Less Powerful When Mobile
Here are the details on the Nintendo Switch specs leak...
Nintendo is hanging on to the full reveal of its new Switch console until after the Christmas holidays. But it looks like the surprise has been at least partially ruined with a new leak that gives away the machine’s specs early.
According to sources of Digital Foundry the Nintendo Switch will run at full CPU speed, which is 1020MHz, when docked as well as when out and about in tablet mode. So that means the game will look the same no matter where you are playing.
Of course there will be some other variations in speeds to make sure battery life keeps going when out and about. This, the leak says, is thanks to a slower GPU and memory controller speeds.
The GPU will run at 307.2MHz undocked and up to 768MHz docked, while the memory controller speed should be 1600MHz when docked but at 1331MHz when mobile. All this is rumoured to be ultimately run by an Nvidia Tegra X1 processor.
The dock itself isn’t supposed to offer any additional boost to power, simply adding power to let the processors all run at full blast. All this should mean that the 720p display of the tablet has enough power on the move while it can run with more power to get the 1080p full res version when docked to a TV.
So all these numbers, it seems, don’t matter too much since it’s all about the fact that Ninty has created a platform that’s more powerful than the Wii U yet is also mobile. Here’s hoping all is made clear at the official full reveal expected in January ahead of the March release.
