Whoever thought of Mariko name should be shot.

Why? All Nvidia Tegra chips have codenames based on Marvel and DC comic book characters. Tegra X1 Codename is Logan (Wolverine), while Mariko is one of Logan's love interests, so it makes sense for the codename of a Tegra X1 revision to be a character who was close to Logan in the comics. 

Oh that's even worse.  I thought it was a play on words for Mario.  Not a marvel fan after they shit out movies since 2000.

Around the Network

New model has been confirmed, at the moment all we know is it has better battery life. I voted for Battery Life and Fanless, but I'm not sure that'll happen now. Should be quieter at least.

4.5-9 hours on the new switch compared to 2.5-6.5 hours on the original.
