    One of the biggest leaps in the Switch homebrew scene is here!


    Hardware acceleration is now possible on Switch! The newest update to LibNX will now enable homebrew developers to take advantage of the GPU, enabling massive performance gains in exciting apps.

    This update also opens up the possibility of emulators for more powerful systems such as Gamecube, as well as 3D homebrew apps now being possible at playable frame rates. It is safe to say that this is a massive milestone for the community.

    Please be aware that apps need to be updated to support the new functionality, allow developers time to adapt.

    Massive thanks to Armada , Plutoo and everyone else who has contributed to making this possible.

    In the future more stuff will incorporate it. It's obvious nothing is using it right now

    I know. It's exciting and making me anxious. I've got plenty of other things to bide my time though.

    I'd say Android is a side project for those who really would like to dedicate their time to it. Like Linux.. Not exactly important.
