No they didn't, that was said buy Nvidia on Nvidia site about Switch, not buy Nintendo, Nintendo never said that. Nintendo still didn't said anything about power, tech, architecture, or about capabilities of Switch, basically everything Nintendo said about Switch till now is in Switch initial trailer.
Let's be serious, everything they've said has been agreed upon and Nintendo takes full responsibility for it.
Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!
