Yeah that’s what I don’t get, it doesn’t seem to use anything that is from Nvidia SOC chips. Maybe I’m wrong and someone can correct me.That's not a Pro switch. It will be a Pro when the actual SOC gets upgraded, not some shitty side chip.
It's the same thing with an updated upscaler.
PS2 slim also had build in network adapter.Every version of the PSP had a slightly smaller form factor and different screen. They added TV output ports starting with the 2000. And the PSPGo is a completely different form factor with different memory card options.
The Vita Slim featured an improved form factor and introduced built-in storage.
The PS One allowed you to attach a screen and play the system semi-portably.
The ever-smaller versions of the PS2 and PS3 were similar in function to the DS Lite and Game Boy Pocket, selling the same hardware with a sleeker look. They also had the nice distinction of lacking the crippling hardware failure rates of the original PS2 and PS3 SKUs. Not insidious at all.
The XBox 360 S featured built-in WiFi, a not insignificant hardware upgrade to its predecessor.
I might be in the minority but I would be way more into the idea of a new dock that upscales a higher resolution than a new device. Kinda wanted to grab a second dock anyway, but I'm in absolutely no rush to replace the Switch itself.
srsly buy the lite dude it's a crazy good portable/I am really close to biting on Switch Lite, just because there is no way I can use it on the TV where my Series X is. Plus the 'plastic' feeling many described is actually an advantage if I am meant to give it to my daughter.
Ah so it's load of nothing just like every other instance of "reporting" on the "Switch Pro"I read the Op's message multiple times and had no idea what they were talking about, since it was gibberish to me.
So I clicked, and I found out PCMags is reporting an article from VCG which is currently erased since it was taken from another site, Centro Pokemon/Leak, who basically made up the entire article using a tweet from an hacker SciresM who think the article is misleading.
Another great example of GAMING JOURNALISM.
It seems the hacker did find these things in the firmware and based on his findings he is speculating what this next iteration of Switch could be. No different than when people found Mariko in the firmware before Switch Lite was released.Ah so it's load of nothing just like every other instance of "reporting" on the "Switch Pro"
I'm still not convinced such a thing even exists, seems to be just a ton of wishful thinking and assumptions
Nintendo is known to keep things very similar within the same generation of handheld hardware, so if Oled is true and 720p is still the resolution of the unit in handheld mode you are still going to notice a major improvement over the current display.The fuck is this? My last phone came out nearly 10 years ago and it was rocking a 1440p screen.
It would be a big waste of resources for handheld mode imo, im surprised they are even putting oled. Current Switch doesn’t even take advantage of its screen because the graphics are so demanding resulting in lots of subnative games i rather just see native 720p and improved framerates for handheld.The 4K docked was predictable, but I was really hoping for a 1080p screen.
At the beginning of a new year when does Nintendo generally have directs? Do they wait till late February, early March when it's closer to the ending of the fiscal year?A couple things to takeaway here:
-This "leak" regarding the dock having tech built into it seems to go along with those rumors a few months ago about regular Switch docks being pretty hard to find with
speculation being Nintendo had discontinued them for some strange reason.
-If this is simply a "4k resolution bump" without some decent performance gains involved, it'll be a huge let down. IMO the most glaring issue with the Switch isn't the visuals,
it's the performance.
-Perhaps Nintendo plans on adding more memory to the system which *could* conceivably help game performance.
-The Mariko chip currently in the Switch systems from my understanding are underclocked substantially. If Nintendo has been able to solve the overheating of the SOC then
we could see a decent performance bump with Mariko.
-Here's a few videos showing overclocks of the OG Switch.
Tech NeoGAF, what do you think?
Hopefully we'll get some idea of what Nintendo has planned on one of their upcoming Directs.
No, you're looking at it wrong. You can use any 4k capable HDMI dock to connect the Switch to a TV, right now. Today.
The Switch Lite currently has no dock capability. This sounds to me like a Mariko model with the restored TV output circuitry.
WTF is this! Last time I checked your phone never had games like the Switch does either.The fuck is this? My last phone came out nearly 10 years ago and it was rocking a 1440p screen.
Not salty at all, Nintendo simply doesn't exist for me. Every time I got a Nintendo console, I was disappointed in it and sold it. They have nothing that interests me.
So what? From 720p to 4k, it's a clean 3x multiplier? With modern upscale tech, it shouldn't be a problem to make this look good.
