Nintendo geeft eindelijk de technische specificaties van de Switch vrij

Nintendo gaf ons in oktober een teaser voor zijn nieuwe console, de Nintendo Switch, gevolgd een officiele onthulling op 13 januari. We zagen de nieuwe opties die het apparaat ons biedt, zagen de games en we hoorden de verhalen. Maar over de technische kant bleef het grotendeels stil.

Die stilte is nu doorbroken. Nintendo heeft namelijk een waslijst aan informatie op hun website gezet die dieper in gaat op de interne architectuur van de console / handheld hybride. Alles wat je zou willen weten staat op de lijst, met uitzondering van een specificatie van de custom processor waar het op draait.
