NVIDIA's custom Tegra-based chip can be spotted, next to 2 x DIMMs, a USB Type-C slot on the circuit board, and the huge 6.2-inch touchscreen can be seen on the other side.

The NVIDIA chip is interesting, as it has a code label of "UDNX02-A2" - and as Ars Technica points out: "the Switch is set to contain a Tegra chip, and we had been led to believe that this would be much like the X1 found in NVIDIA's Shield devices. But this "A2" designation, unlike the "A1" printed on existing X1 chips, could mean we're getting a significant change to the design".
