Today’s Video Worth Sharing, Gaming on the Xiaomi Mi NoteBook Pro With The Core I7-8550U And 16 GB RAM

By Tim

Previously we had the full review of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 inch notebook and it is a very nice unit. Today’s video is once again from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the gaming performance on this device.

You can also find a review on the Core i5 version right here.

As I have stated many times, I don’t give a damn about gaming, but I do realize that many folks do and therefore I am sharing this video.

This one can be found at Geekbuying for about $1130. Over at Gearbest it is running a bit more.

That is all for now,

Tim

Nintendo Switch Ramping Up Production in 2018

By Radu Iorga

Nintendo Switch has been the spoiled child of this year’s tech landscape, surpassing the sales of the PS4 in its equivalent first half a year of availability. Now as the demand continues to be high and new titles are coming, Nintendo is said to be ramping up production of its machine.

The device is already slated to beat the whole sales of the entire Wii U lifetime, so that’s certainly impressive. Now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that 2018 will bring us a ramped up production for the device, starting with April 2018. The report says that Nintendo is planning on making 25 million to 30 million more units of the Switch console over the next fiscal year.

They could make even more, if this year’s holiday season shipments are big. Sometime during the summer, the Switch got really hard to find, since retailers and factories were barely coping with demand. The company has already built 8 million consoles, according to the latest earnings report and sales of device’s software are also booming, thanks to titles like Zelda Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey.

The former has sold 2 million units and the latter almost 3 million. As time passes there will be several extra reasons to get a Switch: it’ll get updated with new features, like the video streaming that recently came, it’ll get new titles and it’ll probably drop its price.

Nintendo may make as many as 30 million Switches next year

By Devin Coldewey

Rumors in early October had Nintendo more than doubling production for the highly successful Switch in order to meet what will almost certainly be crushing demand during the holidays. The company may be planning even higher volumes for next year — perhaps as many as 30 million consoles. Read More

Nintendo shows confidence in Switch with record-setting production plans

By Kyle Orland

Enlarge / Nintendo expects a lot more proud new Switch owners like this one in the coming fiscal year.

The Nintendo Switch has been an unqualified success so far, with Nintendo recently promising increased holiday season production to meet demand and expectations of over 16 million total sales by the end of March 2018. Reporting now suggests the company is expecting that sales pace to increase markedly in the coming year, though, and another associated production increase would come with both a fair amount of potential and risk for the company.

The production news comes from The Wall Street Journal, which cites “people with direct knowledge of the matter” in reporting that Nintendo plans to make 25 to 30 million Switch units in the coming fiscal year (which starts in April 2018). That’s a major increase from the 13 million produced for the current fiscal year, which itself was a sizable increase from the company’s initial plans to make just 8 million units for the console’s first full year on shelves. WSJ‘s sources say those production numbers could go up even higher if coming holiday season sales are strong.

Even the low end of that 25 million sales range is ambitious to put it mildly. The Wii sold 25.94 million units in its second full fiscal year, during the height of the sellout mania surrounding that motion-control console. These days, the market-leading PS4 sold just 17.7 million in its second full fiscal year on shelves. Even the market-dominating PS2 sold just 22.52 million units in its most successful fiscal year, roughly three years after launch.

This Nintendo Switch Clone is Quite Appealing, Runs Windows 10; Here’s Vastking G800

By Radu Iorga

Since everybody is probably thinking about cloning the iPhone X right now, let’s turn our attention to another clone, the one of the very well selling Nintendo Switch. The device is shown in action below, with Windows in tow and it’s quite well done. Its name is Vastking G800 and it’s shown in the hands on video below.

This is clearly a knockoff, one based on Windows and pretty modest specs. I’m talking about an Intel Pentium N4200 quad core Apollo Lake processor and Windows 10 as the OS. There’s an 8 inch IPS display upfront, with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The storage is at 32 GB and we’ve got the option of an SSD as well, installed separately. The price is around $300, but that only applies to the wholesale purchase of 1000 units.

This means that the final product will be priced much higher once it hits the shops. I should probably say “if” not when, because Nintendo may object to this format with a lawsuit. The G800 is expected to come in 2018 and the joysticks it bundles seem to be pretty faithful imitations of the Switch. Other specs include 2, 3, 4 or even 6 GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 2.0 MP front camera.

A 3400 mAh battery makes things tick and we’ve also got an USB 3.0 port and an USB Type-C port. Would you get one?
