NINTENDO HAS REVEALED full specifications for its soon-to-be-released Switch console but has stopped short of detailing the console's CPU set up.
In a new page its UK website, Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch will measure in at 102mm x 239mm x 13.9mm with the Joy-Cons attached, and will tip the scales at 297g or 398g depending on whether or not the controllers are tacked on.
Video output is listed as 1920x1080 at 60-frames-per-second, while the built-in 6.2in capacitive LCD touchscreen display offers 720p resolution.
It's also confirmed that the Nintendo Switch will be compatible with microSD, microSDHC and microSDXC memory cards for expanding the console's 32GB onboard storage, and that it'll pack a non-removable 4,310mAh battery that will take 3 hours to charge from empty to full. This will get you between three to six hours of battery life, depending on what game you're playing.
Nintendo doesn't detail what else you'll find under the hood, though, saying nothing but the fact that the Switch comes with a customised Nvidia Tegra processor.
While Nintendo is keeping quiet, multiple sources claim that the Switch will run on a chip similar to what is inside Nvidia's Shield TV, which is based on the company's last-generation Maxwell architecture.
Eurogamer claims to have more information bout the Nintendo Switch's internals, and claims that the custom Nvidia chip comprises four ARM Cortex A57 cores clocked at a max of 2GHz and paired with 4GB RAM, while the baked-in GPU will feature 256 CUDA cores.
