Rumour: Nintendo Switch Has 4GB RAM
After accurately predicting what the system would entail, trusted rumour-monger Emily Rogers adds to what she has heard by confirming that Nintendo Switch will have 4GB RAM.
“Alright. I have some good news,” Rogers revealed. “I can confirm that Switch has 4GB of RAM in RETAIL units. Not just the dev kits. Double the Wii U’s RAM.”
For comparison’s sake, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have 8GB RAM, although this isn’t entirely made available to games. It’s worth remembering that Nintendo Switch plays heavily on portability when switching to the handheld mode, which is why we shouldn’t expect the specs to be as souped up as the company’s competitors.
Rumours that have swirled around Nintendo Switch this past week include that the Console can be charged with a USB-C cable, has a 6.2″ 720p multi-touch screen, and supports 128GB Micro SDXC cards, as well as that the Dock won’t support external hard drives.
Nintendo Switch will release worldwide in March 2017.
