    Im having an issue and kinda disapointed..

    I sold my PS4 like i said in my other topic for a switch since i dont like Sony exclussives and all i played rly was Doom So i figured hmm i can play doom anywhere then and since Its the only shooter on switch the multiplayer will be populated too...

    I just finished the campaign and Its super LAGGY later on in the levels everytime all the demons spawn in it drops to like 12 FPS and it feels really slow untill you kill few demons then the fps adjust back to normal but these drops almost happens in every level it seems like it cant handle the demons at once... The PS4 never dropped not even with all the crazyness on screen on switch Its rly bad to the point that Its just not fun Its like playing a game on a very low spec computer.. The graphics dont bother me i think it looks fine enough Its the performance tho.. I did not install the patch yet but all that is the multiplayer? I dont think it will help framerate in single player..

    I rly hope it gets patched So it can handle it better but as of now its not really playable If it stayed at 30 with all the downgrades it be fine even if it dropped a frame or 2 but it litterly feels like 10-12 FPS thats horrible

    Anyway what did you guys think of it?

    Sorry to hear, I wonder if it's just a bug causing it or if they really didn't bother to optimize past a certain point. I'm sure there will be updates so we'll find out I guess. Was this docked? Have you tried portable?

    That's my guess. I mean I have it, I have noticed a couple of hiccups every once in a while, but I'm not that far in. But really, the reviewers would be rip'n'tearing it a new one if it was as bad as the OP was commenting.

    So you're complaining about the performance of a game, that has a patch out, but you didn't install the patch.

    Smart.

    Thats exactly it i play on higher diffeculty and i Just beat the game like half hour ago the first 3-5 missions are managable but later on in levels like Argent tower,lazerus labs,Argent der null,vega complex, And more it gets rly rly laggy Its prob around the 15 FPS Mark because the whole game starts to slow down stays like that untill you kill a demon or 2 then Its fine again but this happens every level after the first couple missions So in the middle of the game till the end of the game basicly the whole game...
    Kinda disapointed rly hope patches Will fix it

    Doubt it since other games are fine and doom plays fine too the first couple missions that is later on it gets rly laggy when all demons spawn in and you have to kill them all at that point it can get very laggy like 15 FPS untill u kill some of them then Its back to normal but this happens often like Every mission Will have these slow down moments when you get little further into the game ;(
    I havent updated my game yet and i hope further patches Will fix this

    Check that patch notes bud Its just multiplayer mode and multiplayer game fixes om having slow downs in the campaign single player..

    Maybe your switch have overheating problems and downclocks itself to prevent damage to hardware.

    I heard about this in many video reviews and thorough analysis before the game came out.
    Many reviewers said that it happened when many enemies were around, specially in higher difficulty.
    They recommended to play it in "normal" mode.... :huh:

    It is a known limitation currently (I hope they "fix" it, but I don't see that happening)

    Try setting the console to 720p, should help if you're playing in docked mode.

    The Framerate count you make is something subjective, for some of them is manageable, is the price for a hybrid console, it doesn't hold well for current and demanding games. Even digital foundry claims you need to play this game in lower difficulties for this reason, a switch revision might help with those issues

    If you want to play multiplatform games which require good hardware then don't play them on the Switch. Skyrim is both cheaper and better on the PS4, XBONE and PC.

    But Skyrim actually is one of the games that gets the most out of the portability.
    It is not a fast paced game anyway, not that it has any performance problems, but now you can indulge comfortably during you conmute, addiction all the way.
    It is like portable legal cocaine.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is guaranteed to be a lot better than Skyrim IMO, but that'll be my portable cocaine for sure.

    Does games actually improve framerate with lower resolution? Did anyone actually play Breath of the wild in 480P? Cause I doubt that. No one in 2017 would play a HD intended game with lower resolution unless they had absolutely no choice. Why even have a 480P setting with something that only uses HDMI anyway? :unsure:

    I don't mean to be a dick, but yeah, obviously. Fewer rendered pixels means less load on the GPU/CPU. This is why dynamic resolution scaling helps tremendously with lower-spec systems.

    Does the Switch actually render fewer pixels or does it just downscale the resolution?
