Can you believe we're only weeks away from the launch of the Nintendo Switch, and now we're seeing a purported teardown of Nintendo's next-gen console. There's lots of things to look at, but we'll list of what we can see - including the massive 4310mAh battery.

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".
