    New Model Nintendo Switch - Is It Even Different? Let's Compare! Nintendo recently came out with an updated model of their Nintendo Switch. I bought one of the new Switches so I can take it apart and compare its internal components to the old model. One selling point for the updated model is that it's supposed to have better battery life so we take a look a the components that might affect that. I also show you the changes made to the joy-cons.

    About This Video: In this video I'm taking apart the new model of Nintendo Switch and comparing it to the old model. A lot of things still look the same but there are some differences. For example, the CPU on the new model is smaller, there are some noticeable changes to some of the motherboard components, and also some changes to the analog stick on the joy-cons. Not a lot of changes but this updated model is supposed to have improved battery life which is always nice. And hopefully the changes to the analog stick will make those last better.

    Does the new switch use the same screws as the original one? I got some screwdrivers meant to open the original and it isn't working on the newer one.

    Probably a die shrink on the main chip. Very common for new console revisions. Cost saving for the manufacturer with the added benefit of longer battery life and cooler running for the consumer.

    That's unfortunate that the "new" model is so threadbare in differences. It would've been nice to see some actual improvements to hardware and RAM. Also it seems like the small changes to the joycon are less about functionality and more about cost saving on their side. I'm going to wager stick drift will still happen considering the fundamental casing, spring and plastic holding is identical, just with less plastic and metal used.

    I still wonder if they fixed timings to fit the standard for USB-C to prevent most bricking.

    I do not write comments very often (because my English isn't very well) ,but I had to write on your .
    First, I love what you do
    Second , you would like to know about your possible overlookings,
    I cannot really be sure but I think I have seen one .
    Time 1:57 right down, in the new one I see a chip and in the old version I see just a place where the chip in the new one is mounted.there are two possibilities
    1 I didn't seen very well ,or
    2. They already knew and left the place reserved .

    Do you think it's possible to swap the old switch mother board with the new one?

  • Stryker's Shenanigans

    Haven't looked at the spec changes but it looks like it could have had a die shrink or half-shrink. It would consume less power while maintaining performance and would be cheaper to produce in the long run.

    Hi Steve, I was wondering how different is the switch lite video chip compared to the video chip on the std switch? Does this chip govern video out from the USB-C port and if so can you solder a video chip from a std switch onto a switch lite and make video out possible?

    Hi, The video output of my Nintendo Switch is not working in dock mode. The charging light works normally, and the cables are properly connected. I also tested the switch on another dock and another TV, but had the same result. From the tests this should be related to some hardware problem. Do you have any idea which piece could be? Ps: It works normally in handheld mode. The defect only occurs in the video output.

    I have a problem with my ps4 I need help with. A few days ago my ps4 slim started acting messed up. Whenever I play a game it freezes a lot and the sound is most of the time delayed or some sounds just don't work like voice dialog. My ps4 home screen also freezes quite frequently now. I Have already tried the safe mode things and I even initialized my ps4 and the problem still remains. If anyone can help please reply to this. I haven't been able to game in 3 days and I can't afford a whole nother ps4

    I cant find a solution anywhere so maybe you could help me out.
    So basically my ps4 slim (CUH - 2006A model) is not feeding disc properly this time it got worse. It will feed once and will come out and then it will not feed anymore, my ps4 thinks that there is another disc in there even though its not, this happen often now. Manual eject screw doesnt help it just turns, it never got tighten it just spin around. I havent opened the ps4 yet to the point where i removed screws.
