Nvidia announced that it was developing hardware for Nintendo Switch back in October, and at last night’s presentation Nintendo released more details concerning the tablet’s screen and storage.
The Switch sports a 6.2-inch screen that outputs at 1280×720, or 720p. It runs on a custom Nvidia Tegra system-on-a-chip for its processor, and offers 32 GB of storage out of the box—well within the range of dedicated tablets such as Apple’s iPad.
Some of that internal storage goes toward the OS and various system resources.
A diagram released by Nintendo provides more technical details. Storage can be expanded via a microSDXC card. “Game cards” drop into a slot at the top of the Switch, and battery life lasts up to six hours depending on the game being played.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example, is a high-end title; according to Nintendo, you can expect to wring roughly three hours of juice from the battery while playing on the go.
Nintendo Switch launches on March 3 for $299.99.
