Yesterday we reported how the Nintendo Switch is many times more pwoerful than an iPad, according to a new teardown. Now a developer has shared their estimation at just how powerful the Switch is.

According to Factor 5 co-founder Julian Eggebrecht, the Switch is somewhere between an Xbox One and a Wii U in terms of power. Which sounds about right, given the specs of the system.

He added that the Switch is just as easy to develop for as the PS4, despite being on a different architecture. Yesterday we also reported that Switch developers have access to 3 CPU cores and 3 GB of RAM, the last core and 1 GB of RAM is reserved for the operating system.
