Teardown videos prove Nintendo’s revised Switch with new CPU lasts longer on a charge

Nintendo states that the only difference between its new and revised Switch and the previous model is a better battery life. Not content to take the floor of Nintendo, some popular YouTubers test their new, currently hard-to-find units, opening them to find new undisclosed features or hardware adjustments along the way.

The consensus? Nintendo is not talking about battery life. But unfortunately, there seems to be nothing else inside to get too excited.

Depending on the game being played, the new Switch is supposed to last between 4.5 and 9 hours compared to the original range of 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life. That is a great improvement, and one that is especially impressive considering that its battery is no bigger than the one inside the original Switch. The videos of Austin Evans and Kevin Kenson test these numbers in the real world, and the results after depleting the new and old Switch systems along with games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild and Super Mario Odyssey suggest that Nintendo's claims are accurate.

If you are looking for more reasons to upgrade to the new Switch than just for the improved battery life, you should be skeptical of what some demolitions conclude. Likewise, some claim that the screen on the revised Switch is definitely brighter, with a better white balance than the previous model. Others say that the joysticks built into the included Joy-Con are different from the old ones, and claim that that means they have been improved, perhaps to solve the drift problem of the Joy-Con that Nintendo itself recently recognized.

But as the dismantling of Erica Griffin (above) points out, the subtle variations of hardware make it difficult to determine exactly what has changed, for better or worse, on the screen of the new Switch, or its Joy-Con layout, compared to the previous switch. Griffin has several Switch models (some older models, two new ones) and different Joy-Cons available (also a mix of new and old ones), and their tests show that there is a lot of variation in the color temperature of the screen, it's brightness, as well as the appearance of some of the internal components of the Joy-Con in a disassembly.

As we found in documents published in the FCC, the new Switch revision runs on a slightly different Nvidia Tegra X1 chip. But we didn't see it until until Spawn Wave, a YouTube channel, did the job of opening its unit, cleaning the thermal compound and taking some high-resolution photos of the chip. They claim that the array has been reduced from 20 nm on the Switch before 16 nm in the new version, but again, it seems that increasing the battery life is the only benefit of this update.

I don't want to cancel the search yet for other interesting new features that can still be hidden inside the revised Switch, but it seems we'll have to wait until the rumored Switch Pro until we really have something exciting to wait for. Even so, if you do not already have a Switch, or simply want to update, you should be aware of the improved model. My colleague Chris Welch drew up a list of tips to make sure you are buying the right Switch, so maybe verify that you don't come home with the wrong one.

And if you bought the previous Switch by mistake in the last month, you can update it for free.
