    Hey, all. I've been researching the Switch like mad the last few days. I was even considering an Nvidia Shield, but I decided not to go in that direction.

    Anyway, I can't find a chart with the fps of games in both Docked and Handheld modes. Maybe I'm just having bad luck, but I figured I'd ask here if anyone knew of an up-to-date chart.

    Extra question: how does Sonic Mania run? Consistent 60 fps in both modes? Thanks!

    Usually games target the same framerate in both docked and handheld, in more graphically intensive games handheld generally keeps a more stable frame than docked

    I don't know if there's a list for every game, but here's some that I remember:
    Super Mario Odyssey: 60
    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 60
    The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild: 30
    Splatoon 2: 60
    ARMS: 60
    DOOM (2016): 30
    Wolfenstein 2: 30
    NBA 2k18: 30
    LA Noire: 30
    Octopath Traveler: 30
    Rayman legends: 60
    Sonic mania: 60
    Sonic Forces: 30
    Skyrim: 30
    Kirby Star Allies: 30
    Bayonetta: 60
    Bayonetta 2: 60
    Xenoblade 2: 30
    Fire Emblem Warriors: 30 (in docked there's and option to run at 60 with lower graphical settings)
    Dark Souls Remastered (not released yet): 30
    Mario Tennis Aces: 60
    Okami HD: 30
    Minecraft: 60
    Fortnite: 30
    Snipperclips: 60 (obviously)
    Diablo 3 (not released yet): 60
    Doom Eternal (not released yet): 30
