Hardware don't make the game. The game makes the game.

You are seriously the biggest nintendo apologist on this site. Serious question... do you work for nintendo branding? 

It legit looks like you areally a Nintendo social media marketer...

Try addressing the argument, not the arguer.

The butt lady is correct - even the PS4 has retained its 8GB of RAM with maybe 5 GB reserved for games. A mobile chip-based system has no need for that much RAM, it just can't render so many textures. That is why your 970 or 750 is sufficient with 2 or 3 GB VRAM, not enough computational power for high-res texture packs here.

Here we go again with the same shit

I'm serious. You truly act like a brand marketer.

Any time any news perceived as negative towards Nintendo occurs you create a NEW thread in an attempt to draw attention to your specific argument.

If you simply argued  within already existing thread...

I think people will be surprised by what this system will be able to output visually!
As the GameCube had many games running on it that looked impossible because of its paper specs, I believe that the Switch will do the same.

On paper a Nissan GTR shouldn't be faster than many of the bigger engine supercars that it beats, but it does! Which is why we really need to see the full picture of this system to understand what it can do. This could be just the base option of the NX and on January Nintendo could very well showcase add-on hardware in the for of the external computing device coming down the line.

there's no external computing device coming down the line

When was this announced? So far many of their other patents have all been shown legit so far...

because it's a tablet. the hardware is inside that piece of plastic that holds the screen and battery. there's no expanding a tablet unless you buy a newer, better tablet.



I saw this post on Neogaf where someone said that the OS itself will take 800mb cause some random dude leaked it or something.

I don't think that the OS won't take up any ram tbh because this really isn't the gamecube days. The OS will most likely be doing things in the background or have the ram reserved for things such as if you want to browse the web.

So I do think that if we are being realistic, we should assume it will have 3.2gb reserved for games or less.

And yes, as like how one of the dudes mentioned, it depends on what kind of ram is it?



Really, there is only 2 to choose from in the LPDDR4. 25GB/s or 50GB/s. If we compare it to xbox one's memory bandwidth, the x1 has 68.3GB/s. But the x1 has ESRAM that can help with the memory bandwidth which is 102GB/s. And ps4 has 176.0 GB/s.

So it is pretty interesting to compare, that is for sure. If it really is Parker without compromises, 50GB/s + Pascal would be interesting to see. Specially since Nvidia always had lower Memory Bandwidth (and other things) than AMD but still managed to out perform them.
