    As you may have seen in the trailer, Skyrim will be available for Switch.
    that makes me think, ok, switch should be able to play it at max graphics setting in home console mode.
    but what about portable console. what i think is that maybe when switching to portable mode, it reduces graphics setting a bit, for Skyrim, it would reduce them to medium/high.

    What do you think?
    do you think that playing in portable mode gives reduced graphics setting or do you think we will get the same experience as on home mode?

    I wonder if the game switches from 1080p rendering to 720p rendering to save on power. It's quite possible the dock has additional assistive hardware like an external GPU to split the load when gaming at 1080p or 4k.

    We have a list of supporting developers/publishers on the main thread but I can see a mobile developer DeNA so expect some small mobile games too.

    according to lasts rumor, not confirmed yet. the gaming is in 1080p on home mode and 900p on portable mode. 4k is only available for streaming such as twitch or youtube. i personally hope for a plex app for switch

    GovanifY's leaked specs say 6.2" IPS LCD 720p screen 16:9 ratio. 900p is pointless for a handheld like this and even the original XBOX One renders natively in 900p and struggles 60fps. It's probably all rendered in 720p then upscaled to 1080p or 4k with the dock but that's my two cents.

    GovanifY is a creditable hacker. Says he got the dev kit specs but take it as a grain of salt until we get proper specs from an actual gaming news team. or Chary lol.

    actually north korea. please send help
    It could just be that the devkit has a small amount, and the retail units have a lot more.

    This is innacurate.

    In Nvidia's blog it's stated that it uses the latest GeForce architecture:

    The latest GeForce is not Maxwell, but Pascal.

    It's hard to say because they didn't directly say pascal. Maxwell still is one of the top architectures still today and there has been no news of a pascal mobile SoC. Most people say GTX980ti a current gpu and it's Maxwell.

    From the trailer it looked like the quality is the same, but it would make more sense to reduce the graphics to something reasonable for portability. I hope for 5-7 hours gameplay.

    The trailer is bs if your looking at texture quality. Skyrim and NBA 2k were just videos as concept. 2k and Bethesda both said they had no plans for those games so don't refrence them.
