    What makes you say that? It should be able to do 1080p just fine.

    Price is nice but it'd be nicer if it came in some sort of holder. The dock is nice because of just that - it docks the Switch when it's not being used as a handheld.

    I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure all the dock does is tell the Switch it can render in 1080p and doesn't add any power.

    Switch doesn't exceed 100% of its performance, no, but it only runs at 40% performance in 720p handheld mode (though this can be tweaked by devs). Running at a higher resolution requires more power.

    I can find a seller but not for $30 as Gualala states.
    It seems the C-force CF001 is a low budget replacement for the Samsung Dex.

    For the price, I'm definitely gonna pick one up if it's confirmed working.

    Here's my translation of the thread. Please bear in mind that the functionality of this adaptor is unconfirmed.

    Well it's certainly big enough to fit a displayport-hdmi adapter...

    The linked article:

    Found this image on the product page, it has one USB type C plug, three USB type C ports (one supporting power input), one HDMI port that can output 4K with supported devices, and two USB 3.1 type A ports.

    was only a matter of time.
    They found out the proto call for the cross talk between the switch and the dock.
    Someone will get one of these open it up and do the same and we will end up with even cheaper ones.
