Ahead of Nintendo Switch's January presentation, new information of this hybrid home console has been discovered.
The new leaked information from Eurogamer has revealed details about the console's graphics and CPU speed. The report gathers information from several sites.
According to the report, Switch will be running on stock Tegra X1, which dampens the players' expectation as they hoped something better.
However, the leaked information too has some inconsistency, as noted by the report. Like the instance where Tegra X1 can run HDMI 2.0, so why would it use HDMI 1.4 specs? Hence, we cannot completely rely on the leaked information.
One new feature in Nintendo Switch is its ability to dock and undock and players have been anticipating on how well it runs when docked and undocked.
The report says that Switch does not have two performance configurations for docked and undocked. It is "not as capable as its mobile form" but when docked and attached to an HDTV, the console's competency is clearly visible. Further, there is no second GPU or additional hardware in the dock as the Nintendo patent filing had shown.
The performance of the docked and the undocked Switch is as clear as "night and day," says Eurogamer.
But one plus point is that gaming element of the console will not be compromised if a user is changing it from docked to undocked. The CPU, reportedly, remains constant at 1020MHz.
However, it will be interesting to see if Nintendo will bring some changes before its January presentation or will keep it same as mentioned in the leaks.
