    Ofc, but it's bad to have more options? Android gives you Access to more games and you don't need to resign from Horizon. There is no cons here.

    Weird. Usually notebookcheck is pretty reliable, but then again they were using v6. I wonder if the methodology changed. Also that's still less than the Switch which is weird seeing as it's clocked less at stock but they didn't say if they were using an overclock on the Switch.

    Results are different for each unit. You should take in consideration 1% of score as possible error +-.
    GPU is the same, CPU is weaker on Switch, but it has better UI performance (maybe Shield TV launcher is heavier for SoC as Switch uses AOSP).
    So results are meeting expectations.

    Google don't really support android, every chipset gets it's own fork by the oem. It's horrendous.

    I've never tried it, but Unity supported x86 but have now dropped it as very few phones shipped with it.

    https://blogs.unity3d.com/2019/03/0...bit-and-app-bundles-backported-to-2017-4-lts/

    It would seem like a bug if unity on x86 was slower than arm.

    Ah ok. I didn't know, thanks.

    So has the methodology revised or is it just within the margin of error?

    I already answered your question.
    Tl;dr
    GPU is the same, CPU in Switch is weaker, UI for Android Switch is faster.

    You posted the Ubuntu vs Android thing? I don't mean to be rude but it was worded very strangely and I didn't understand what you said really. It still doesn't explain how the antutu scores are different.

    It was
    Switch Android vs Shield TV Android
    I don't know from where did you get idea about Ubuntu.

    You've shared score from AnTuTu benchmark which is an Android app and I shared correct score for v7.

    What has changed from v6 to v7 I guess I have to ask myself.

    You have screens. If you want to know how methodology was changed, Ask AnTuTu developers. I don't know what you will get from this info, but whatever.

    How is cpu in the switch weaker when the switch and shield are using the same exact chipset.

    It can be overclocked? I'm guessing you mean the switch cpu is currently running at a slow clock speed when booted into android?

    I think so. AnTuTu scores don't lie... In this case... I think. :ph34r:

    Same thing here imo. If doesn't make much sense to clock under it.

    Unless you are not aware, running Horizon (the switch's OS) or Android/Linux is simply a matter of changing the payload, the whole filesystem for the alternative OS lives in the SD card.

    And another score from Shield TV which is much closer to ByLaws score.

    This seems to be the best Android port so far. Let's have a look where this is going.
