Nintendo Switch reportedly doubles Wii U’s memory at 4GB of RAM

Rumors on the Nintendo Switch keep rolling in, and the most recent is from Emily Rogers, a writer with solid sources and a history of accurately reporting on Nintendo rumors. Her latest comes to us as we wonder about the power of Nintendo’s latest console.

According to her sources, she confirms that the Nintendo Switch will have 4GB of RAM tucked away in the retail version.

As usual, this is strictly a rumor until Nintendo confirms the news.

More powerful than the Wii U

If Rogers’ sources prove to be true, this would make the Nintendo Switch carry twice as much memory as the Wii U, which only sported 2GB. On the flip-side, it only sports half of the 8GB that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have, meaning, once again, Nintendo is aiming for a less powerful but more accessible console.

However, if it were to be compared to other tablets, the Nintendo Switch could be considered as a very powerful mobile unit with the iPad Pro 12.9-inch version as a relative comparison.

In the end, though, it’s still all speculation at this point.
