Since many games run internally at 1600x900, it would be nice to be able to run these game's native resolution. I was just wondering if there's any custom firmware around right now that may be able to do this.

I can think of a few groups of people this would be useful for:

1) People with 4k displays that can accept 1600x900, thus avoiding scaling the image twice (900p>1080p internally on the Switch, then 1080p>2160p on the display)

2) People with 1600x900 monitors

3) People with CRT monitors, since these don't have fixed pixels (I'm in this category).

I mean, Mario Odyssey still looks good on my CRT monitor, but native resolution is always noticeably better. Like I mostly run my Wii U at 720p since that's the internal resolution of most of Nintendo's games.
