It's being discussed in the Foxconn leak topic, but I think it may be interesting enough for a new thread.

EDIT:

More high res pictures
https://tieba.baidu.com/p/4988526087?red_tag=2061787100

  • 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.

More pictures (https://tieba.baidu.com/p/4988500850?red_tag=2053941465)
  • First picture is Tegra X1. Note the chip ends with "A1" revision/designation
  • Second picture is the Tegra in Nintendo Switch. The chip ends with "A2" revision/designation.

Was active cooling confirmed before? I knew there were vents, but I assumed they were to allow cooling via convection when docked.

Is there any interesting info from those sources for those who speak Chinese? There isn't all that much we can tell from straight pictures though they're awesome to see.

Damn... I was hoping that all that processing was being done by mini-Pikmin inside. This just makes it look like normal electronics.

Is the black thing with the Japanese text the battery?



It's pretty wild that there's nearly no air inside. It's so densely designed.

And without looking at the dies directly this means basically nothing? Apart from letting us know the battery is actually as big as it can be, apparently.

Everyone complaining about the battery time and I'm just here being impressed that they were even able to get 2.5-6 hours for it.

In their defence you could buy a larger capacity battery after the fact and it made it heavier (I bought the official extended battery).


Switch looks tight, though they don't really have any space to waste this time.

It was bs though because the battery you could buy fit in that entire empty space. Should have shipped with it.

The LPDDR4 chips have to generate a decent amount of heat if it needs to be actively cooled alongside the SoC.

Looks like it should be very possible to mod it into an Apple TV-like form factor. Ben Heck needs to get on that.

I'd like to add that the pictures are not leaked by the Foxconn guy.

These photos are leaked by a Switch retailer in China.

Yep. Battery on the Switch is actually really high capacity. About as good as could be expected.

What's up with that thing "covering" the battery? I've never seen it in smartphones teardowns.
