I heard the rumor of the Switch having 1 Tflop of processing power which is slightly under the base xbone and Ps4. Plus I'm not believing any of the rumored specs. Plus the Dev of dark souls 3 got the game working on the switch with acceptable results. So based off of that I feel that the Switch is far more capable or they have a Pascal based chip in there.

People are forgetting something though.

Say the Switch does end up being right under the Xbox One even, both Nintendo and Nvidia are amazing at optimization.

Well.... like i said. I'll be getting one when it comes out. I'm a die-hard Legend of Zelda fan, and Breath of the Wild looks like reason enough to get a Switch. I know they're saying that it's likely it will no longer be a launch title... but oh well. I'm sure other stuff will be out that will easily tide me over until it IS available.

It's also using Nvidia's own custom api. I'm sure NVN will squeeze every last bit of power out of the system.

Exactly look at the Devs behind Dark Souls 3. They got that game to run on the Switch with acceptable framerates. I bet it took great optimization to get that game to run.

Same here depending on the launch titles and accessories such as the separate Wii-U pro style controller is available at launch.

Considering this Zelda's Wii U roots, don't expect too much.

Zelda looks better on PC (j/k);



(This is my pic taken with a fan-made mod of Unreal 4 Engine physics demo)

Come to think of it, everything looks better on PC!

BTW styckx, I just checked that pic at 6.2" and tbh, you wouldn't notice the texturing much anyway tbh. Bare in-mind that the picture has compression artifacts as well.

I don't know, i mean the Wii U had a fan in it, so if the switch is more powerful that the U how are they cooling this thing, does it only require cooling while sitting in the caddy, is that were the cooling stuff is, and is that why it down clocks to half the speed when you take it out, still some stuff we don't really know about it.

Cooling is in the screen part itself, the dock is just a tv connector and breakout port really. As for if the fan runs in portable mode, who knows, if it does it's not fast

It clocks down to save power, its running on battery

I'd still find it quite surprising if it downclocked itself as much as the rumors claim it does. Would kinda kill the "portability" aspect... but then again, I can't imagine myself really taking it anywhere to play it anyway.

and styckx.... Since when has any Legend of Zelda been about visual quality? No Man's Zelda? Can tell you one thing. Breath of the Wilds will have one thing by the plethora that NMS is STILL incredibly lacking..... content, replayability.... hell, gameplay.

^^I am assuming that the machine is primarily a portable system, and what you get while docked or undocked will be the same, but docking the unit might simply be there to allow some extra stuff like AA/AF and a few more FPS and even upscaling to 1080p, while the unit is being played on a TV........i assume.....as those thing's would not really be a issue when it is running on the small screen.

But as i said, i am just assuming, it might be a powerhouse and Ninty might be about to change console gaming forever. ha

I still say i'd believe that when i see it. Sounds a little absurd to downclock the GPU that far just having it out of the dock, especially if all the dock is essentially there for is to allow it to be connected to a TV.

And i have to say that i'm LOVING the video's i'm finding on Youtube of people playing Legend of Zelda songs on different instruments. Here's a pretty nice piano composition.

So its almost time it will be revealed!

Im hoping too see some progress here by Nintendo, meaning:

-scrapping friend codes and use a more friendly system like Xbox One and Playstation 4.
-upgrading their system menus being more user friendly.
-upgrading their internet network (higher speeds) and more games in the store.
-Being able to voice chat and send messages without any interference.
-Streaming is hot, so its gotta be there
-Being able to play music while gaming
-Media support (player , 4k , HDR ?)

If its just about going outside and being able to play with friends they have shot themselves in the foot. Not many people will do that.



This Image is so cringe

Anyways what is your POV ?

How are two people going to be playing split screen on that, unless you got bionic eyes to see the detail. lol

Ok.. I can't.. this console is doomed..

I mean.. fark off Nintendo.. 30 minutes now and you're show casing a farking Wii U original.. fark off.. You're done.. 30 farking minutes.. Consumers at most will decide to buy or not to buy in 5 minutes.. 30 minutes later you're showcasing the saving grace to your previous console which is like saying Crazy Taxi saved the Dreamcast from Arcades..

I can't.. This is a disaster.. GIMMICK GIMMICK GIMMICK GIMMICK GIMMICK

Same old bull****

That was the absolute worst console launch hype presentation I've ever watched...

Not buying.. Terrible... Every game looked ****, you gave us nothing we already didn't know and for christ sakes you don't even know when Zelda, you're last bastion of cash being released..

RIP Nintendo..

Mario Kart and Super Mario Odyssey looked great to me. The Switch seems powerful enough for the games I want to see and I do like the things Nintendo put into it. The price, though ($300) I hope doesn't translate to too much more than 250 over here. I actually think the price is only "ok". 200 would've been much better.

Oh and Zelda looks good too, suprisingly. Zelda will be available on release day.

p.s. 3 posts styckx? Move on, it's obviously not your cup of tea.
