It would surely be like the 3g model of the Vita, where you need to get a sim card and sort out your own data plan with your local provider, Nintendo are not going into the mobile data business

Nintendo should. They could set up their own plans and all so consumers don't have to go to third party providers. Wouldn't make sense for them to include it without taking advantage of it themselves. 

And then, they should also start their own internet plans worldwide for people using online game at home. And then, why not start their own banks so people can borrow money and buy more Nintendo products. And then, they should provide electricity plans worldwide so people playing Nintendo products also use Nintendo electricity...

Let's get rid of all the third party providers!

I'm just saying that if the rumors are true it would be strange for Nintendo to add that feature when they won't be making money from it.

They just CAN'T make money from it. It's impossible and nobody can do it, plain and simple. You can't offer 4G plans woldwide, and even less when you're not a telecom company. The best thing they can do is negotiate with specific companies in each country to launch some special 4G plans, but that's it.

The Vita did that before the Switch, so it's not that surprising. (The 3G Vita failed and was quickly discontinued though...)

Is it good?

Yes it's good

The battery life is going to be low when gaming. The thing is 1/2 the power of the Xbox One, there is no miracle tech coming to provide it with 10hours battery life.

Yes there is. A larger battery.

Apparantly 256 CUDA cores at 921 Mhz yields about 471 GFLOPS 32bit FP.

Remember thats the "docked" performance.

When its used as a handheld its probably half the docked rate or so.

The docked and undocked performance theory doesn't make sense.

First, sources have already mentioned that there is nothing special about the dock, mainly just extra ports. At best, one can hope this thing to have some sort of wireless hdmi/streaming.

Second, developers would have to take into consideration the difference in performance between for each mode to take advantage of it. It means more work for them if they do. It adds unneccesarry complexity that goes against Nintendo's goal of easier/simpler software development.

Third, it creates inconsistent user experience, making the product seem lower in quality. Throttling is seen as something negative for mobile/portable devices.



4G LTE

That is all that matters. This thing will do amazingly.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Yup, spot on. This is why I say the switch is inherently a 720p console. But it would be a really good 720p console though. It has just about got too much power for 720p, so if devs keep their games to that target they should get some decent results. it's less then 4GB ofavailabe Mem for devs and shared 50GB/s bandwidth would be more than enough for 720p and toned down versions of PS4/XB1 games. 

With this level of power, I hope they primarily target 720p, or 900p at the highest, you'd get a better overall result.

Even Xbox One doesn't get the best results at 1080p.

I exoect them to target 720p internally with all their games and then the Dock will basically have an upscaled built in to upscale the games to 1080p/4k for TVs. 

It would be extremely stupid if Nintendo tries to target 900p/1080p games natively. With the power the switch has it would be as u said just better all round to go for 720p. They could hit that rez at some pretty decent framerates and lots of IQ gloss.

Yeah, at native 1080p with specs in this ballpark, you're not going to get much better shaders/effects/etc than Wii U does at 720p.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Forget the specs, give me the games!
