    They could but they won’t. They’ll most likely make the switch revisions the “new” Nintendo switch with better clock speeds and possible more ram. But an over clocking ips is coming soon for the switch.

    How to fix your switch getting too hot. Open it up, get rid of Nintendo’s crappy thermal paste that acts as an insulator, apply arctic silver Mx4 or your favorite thermal paste, and boom. Doesn’t get as hot as normal.

    Would something like Thermal Grizzly's Conductonaut be feasible, or is that only for the most enthused of enthusiasts?

    More RAM with other specs invariated could allow for more than 30s of recorded gameplay. That's about it.

    i mean its possible but if the switch has anything aluminium based in the heat sink or around the cpu/gpu dies you run a great risk of destroying your switch

    I tried it before and it worked pretty well. Switched to paste because I didn’t want to some how have it short my system

    I think 8gb of RAM is not hard to 'squeeze', but hard to afford.

    Oh, so nearly 20 million units sold is a commercial failure and the Wii U was a success, got it.

    Just to clarify, overclocking won't affect the performance of any actual Switch games, like Wolfenstein 2. It will only increase the power of the emulators.

    Who said anything specifically (except you) about the commercial aspect? It simply said "The Switch is an indisputable success". But go ahead and continue injecting things that weren't there to begin with. Despite it's commercial sales, for me the Switch is a failure. Thus I dispute it. Understand? Good.

    I bought two Switches at launch. Neither were bent upon arrival. Second Switch was stowed away for hacking. First Switch was used for about 60 hours docked, playing BotW and Fast RMX. Pulled out of dock after about a month to upgrade sd card, noticed Switch was bent.

    FF to July 2018, I got my SX OS PRO in the mail, broke out my boxed, still unbent Switch, and loaded it up with games and docked it. Played for about 10 hours, total. Pulled out Switch to add more games...BENT.
    I can say, anecdotally anyways, that the Switch bends while in use, not over time. Heat is the only thing that can cause that.

    Then how is it not a commercial success? I'm just dying to know.

    Still more injecting? You need some reading comprehension skills. That's all I have to say. Thank you. Goodnight.

    It would affect native Switch titles, but the impact would be unnoticeable to the average end-user, as it would be increasing the throughput of the processor. The CPU clockspeed is would help with loading times and expediting BUS processes, but most games are optimized to run on the Switch hardware and aren't programmed to run at uncapped speeds (unlimited frame limit like emulators).

    The average person will focus on whether the Switch's game runs or not, and they already do, so they won't care. Now, in-game areas that have noticeable lag/stuttering may see marked improvements, such as Korok Forest in Breath of the Wild, but that noticeable difference is an exception and not the norm.

    I am personally curious whether or not NSP installation and/or USB hard drives will have improved performance.

    The switch is in the same ballpark as PS360 visually yet has 8 times the RAM.
    I think more CPU/GPU would've had a better impact.

    It was proven ages ago that switch units were arriving bent from the factory, which disproves the heat theory

    Personally, it having 8GB with its specs wouldn't have made much of a difference, if any, as it wouldn't have been able to effectively utilize it. Now, sticking with 4GB of RAM, but having double the RAM bandwidth that it has now would have made a huge difference.
