Hearsay: Datamine Apparently Reveals All About The New Nintendo Swap Revision

Switch Console

It is solely the seventh day of the 12 months and we have already bought some wild Nintendo rumours circulating on-line, so seize some salt and skim on.

Nicely-known dataminer and console hacker SciresM has reportedly uncovered new particulars in regards to the rumoured Swap ‘Professional’ mannequin by sifting via firmware code – though they warn these particulars may not be totally correct and there’s a good bit of hypothesis, too.

With this in thoughts, the revised system is outwardly codenamed “Aula” and utilises a Mariko SoC. Along with this, it is believed it would assist each docked and handheld play, 4K assist ultimately or type and will probably characteristic an OLED display. The Realtek chip may be within the dock, relatively than the system.

Right here is SciresM’s full breakdown, through ResetEra:

Nintendo truly is engaged on a brand new mannequin with upgraded show stuff and has been for ~1.5-2 years. I personally imagine it is 4K given the indicators I am seeing within the firmware, however that is not confirmed but and could possibly be fallacious.

The brand new {hardware} is codenamed Aula, it is utilizing a Mariko SoC. There is a bunch of references to it in code (ambiance helps the brand new show already in principle).

The pill itself undoubtedly has an upgraded show, I do not know if it is 4K.

Aula has firmware assist some Realtek chip that advertises itself as a “4K UHD multimedia SoC”, too, therefore my perception it is 4K. That chip is likely to be inside a brand new dock and never contained in the pill, although, there is no strategy to inform from the firmware code but.

Aula explicitly helps handheld mode. It isn’t docked solely; that is calcio, which looks as if it is for inside solely/by no means releasing since Calcio has no gamecard slot and no battery.

You’ll be able to test boot sysmodule show code in the event you’re curious. The brand new show does not assist energy administration pwm, it has its personal vendor particular bs I needed to reverse engineer and implement a month or two in the past.

Mariko has *considerably* higher cooling and battery life. It is a bona fide die shrink over the unique technology.

My greatest guess (pure hypothesis, no firmware indication that is the case) is that in the event that they want additional efficiency, they will push it to larger clock charges throughout the board.

However yeah, I speculate video games might be like “DSi enhanced” video games had been, or like how some video games benefited from PS4 Professional regardless of engaged on PS4.

Checked my earlier discussions with hexkyz, the upgraded pill show is an OLED display. In all probability not larger decision on pill itself, so I assume the 4k realtek chip is extra more likely to be new dock than I assumed it was.

Vanilla most likely will not.

We’re within the realm of hypothesis. Aula has new GPIO that redbox does not associated to assist for this, so I’d tentatively guess that redbox models will not assist the brand new factor.

Swap ‘Professional’ rumours have been circulating for just a few years now, and quite a lot of business analysts are nonetheless assured it would present up sooner or later this 12 months. You’ll be able to make amends for all of the earlier developments in our complete information.
