The Tegra X1 in Switch? No. 

This Apple A12X? Quite possibly. Wouldn't surprise me at all if its 3-5x stronger of a chip. Wouldn't surprise me either if Nvidia also has a similar chip to this in the prototype stages that Nintendo might want to take a look at. When Tegra X1 launched it was basically about as good as the Apple A9X (the equivalent chip at that time) only it was on less efficent node (20nm instead of 10nm). 

Dude... did you read the guy I quoted?

He was saying "The switch is at least three quarters of an xbone" so this is to be expected.
Also Apple is without a doubt lying or twisting facts to get their tablet looking more powerfull than it is.

Mobile version of NBA 2k19.... who cares really?

Atmost I expect it ll beat the Switch version in terms of graphics, but suspect both the xbox one & PS4 will beat this apple tablet.


It doesn't just beat the Switch version in graphics ... it destroys it. 

60 frames per second at 2732x2048 resolution is double the frame rate of the Switch version and almost SIX times the resolution/pixels (undocked). 

In layman's terms that's a far bigger jump in resolution from SD (Wii) to 720p (PS3/XBox 360). 

It's running at a way higher resolution than the base PS4 and XBox One S as well and it looks about the same to me. The console versions maybe look a touch better in some spots, but the iPad version is running at a waaaaay higher resolution (almost 4K resolution). Both are 60 fps. Unfortunately Apple has removed the NBA 2K19 vid from Youtube so I can't link to it, but it looks very close to the PS4/XBox One S versions but at a faaaaar higher resolution. 

Also the CPU on this iPad Pro destroys the PS4/XB1, that much is clear, the Geekbench tests on it show it goes toe to toe with full blown high end Intel i7 CPUs which are way better than the junk inside a PS4 or XBox One. Apple is doing some impressive engineering with their chips.
