You can get 128gb SD cards for like 30 nowadays - so i dont think storage will be an issue. Though you might have to transfer between system flash and sd card for transfer speed reason - guess we will have to wait for more information.
Switch will probably have 32GB internal memory for the OS/system and a packed in 32GB SD card, which you can swap out, like the DSi and the 3DSes. The dock will support external HDDs like the WiiU does.
Pretty good specs for a handheld; usb 3.0, expandable memory with sd cards, 4k 30fps video output.
Also, has anyone noticed the (air?) vents on top of the handheld? Could there also be vents on the bottom, or even on the back? If yes, can this mean higher clock-speeds when in docked mode (dock may house the fan)?
Now that I'm actually looking this up, the leaked specs are a carbon copy of the Jetson TX1 development board that was rumored to be in early NX dev kits. Basically a Tegra X1 on an embedded motherboard.
Oh you people, get a reality check. If real, this is spec'd like a high-end phone, cuts needed to be made somewhere to make it not $600, notably the screen for performance, battery-life and cost. eMMC currently doesn't go higher than about 256GB and it's really expensive, solid state drives are too large with the form-factor. So it was going to be between 32 and 128GB, the latter is still somewhat expensive (again noting the above). 64GB is doable and I wouldn't be surprised if they price tier, if not at launch, later on. You're going to be SD dependent in portable mode, docked it can probably use HDDs but there might be some awkward syncing if you pull it out, it's just the limitation of technology right now.
32GB included storage is no problem to me, hell I'd rather it that way. I'm sure pretty much everyone owns an extra HDD or SD card by now, and even if you don't they're not too expensive to go out and get one with a massive amount of storage space nowadays. That's a much better option then being forced to pay for a larger included HDD at a higher markup. I like giving the freedom of savings/choice to the consumer, maybe I'm crazy though.
Considering there are supposedly dev kit specs, which usually have significantly more RAM than the actual system, 4GB points to it only having as much as the Wii U (albeit faster), but still I'd expect more
32GB is perfectly fine, we'll be surly able to use SD to expand it, and thankfully those things are getting bigger, faster and cheaper every month. What i'm happy to see is that this main storage has a 400 MB/s read speed, which is pretty decent, they must be using some decent eMMC, that speed will hopefully allow fast booting of the system and also fast loading time whithin the OS menu, something I really need since 3DS is so slow to me to navigate
