Nintendo Switch is powered by Nvidia Tegra X1

Tech Insights confirm the Nvidia Tegra X1 chip in the Switch

Where some just give their impression on where the Nintendo Switch might be in terms of power compared to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, others prefer to just go ahead and take a look inside to know what’s going on there. Guys at Tech Insights decided to take their system and just tear down their Nintendo Switch. They’ve come up with a clear answer on what’s powering the system: a Nividia Tegra X1 chip. No surprise here, this is what Nvidia announced a few weeks before release of the console. There were rumors that Nvidia manufactured a custom chip for the system but it looks like its a stock X1.

After subsequent processing of the GPU from the Nintendo Switch, we have determined that the processor is the Nvidia Tegra T210. The T210 CPU features 4 Cortex A57 and 4 Cortex A53 processor cores and the GPU is a GM20B Maxell core.
