    What do you want in a Switch 2?

    curl-6 said: Alistair said: It is 3 years later just like Sony felt the need to release another console, same for Nintendo. It is the same thing. The point of calling it PS4 Pro or Xbox One X is that games were back and forward compatible. Do the same thing with the Switch 2, it doesn't matter what you call it. I like Super Switch myself. The Xbox One X is 4x faster than the...

    Radek said: Alistair said: Yes. Same as PS4 pro. The Switch was based on the 2014 Samsung Note 4's CPU, so actually it will have been 6 years since those ARM A57 cores released. nVidia also didn't purpose build the Tegra X1 for the Switch, it was a reject chip because 16nm was delayed. Switch the Arm A57 to Arm A76, and double the GPU cores while updating to Pascal or Turing...

    Every time I look at this thread, it is amazing how little people know of mobile hardware. AMD announced the CPU cores for the PS5 (FIVE, NOT FOUR) in a mobile chip, running at 1.8ghz, and it only uses 15 watts. The Ryzen 4800U. Even I was surprised. https://www.amd.com/en/products/apu/amd-ryzen-7-4800u That is what is possible in 2020 with a mobile CPU. And people wonder if the next Switch can...

    I think Nintendo will do market research. They will add a camera because every kid is obsessed with cameras. And they've hit the gold mine with this design and need to capitalize on it with more power as soon as possible. Soundwave is right that building your business if it is possible is the way to go. Platform totals don't mean anything. We can patch over the internet and we have platform...

The iPad Pro will most likely beat the PS4 this year. The problem with comparing power is that different types of devices are strong at different things. So yeah...

    Rumor: Nintendo plans to launch a new Switch SKU in 2020

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 January 2020

    The Switch is such a good idea, they should go right ahead and make a Super Switch (the Switch 2 with a better name), the technology is sitting there waiting already. CPU: Cortex A57 from 2014's Note 4, upgrade to 2019's A76. You only need 4. Uses the same amount of power.GPU: Maxwell from 2015, upgrade to 2019's Turing. Double them to 512 cores using 7nm (half a mobile GTX 1650 super, uses 1/4...

    Nintendo's success with the Switch both a blessing and a curse?

    Mnementh said: thismeintiel said: Switch will start to decline once the new systems are out. However, it not getting as many AAA 3rd party games isn't the only factor to why. It'll mainly be because it is getting older and because Nintendo has already released their big guns. A price cut might slow the decline quite a bit, but it won't stop it. Which experience will Switch...

    It's not about being a purist, it is clearly not a home console. The power level is mobile. There's a reason the mobile only Switch lite exists. Being able to be plugged into a TV doesn't make it a home console. The Vita wasn't a home console either just because you could plug it in. ...

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 December 2019

    A 5 watt APU based on 2014's mobile tech is not a home console. It really shouldn't even be an argument. Add a dock to the Vita and you had the same thing. Personally the Wii U was a great console for me. If I look at the Switch, outside Mario Odyssey, nothing was new on the system for the first few years. The Gamecube to Wii transition was more exciting than the Wii U to Switch transition (20...

    Next Gen has arrived, PC gamer also need an upgrade. Xbox Series X specs will be the minimum requirement for next 7 years

    in PC Discussion on 13 December 2019

    Don't be silly, an RX 5700 and 16GB memory (obviously 8GB won't play next gen games) with a 6 core Ryzen will be more than enough for some time. You can always slightly adjust the settings. For sure 8GB memory, quad core, and mid range video cards below the RX 5700 (which has GTX 1080 performance) won't work well. ...
