Nintendo hardware its been very reliable since ever and they went always in the low power consumption way, why change that? More energy needed = hotter device = hotter device over the time is more likely to break than the cooler ones bc of the higher hardware stress unless its very well cooled.
Maxwell is bigger, hotter, power hungrier, less efficient and cheaper than pascal, and on handheld can be even worse than in a bigger case.
Im really concerned now this is one of my worst nightmares in hardware terms.
