What good would get running 720p game on 1080p screen!? Nothing, it's basically same like running 720p game on 720p screen.
We have been over this already. I am not going to keep repeating myself. Go back over my prior posts.
Lol, Switch does not have "built in" upscaler that makes native 720p games runing at native 1080p, but games will built in way that will use extra power of Switch that became available in docked mode for higher resolution in TV mode. Games are built in way that will run at 720p in handheld mode and at higher resolution in docked mode, something similar like PS4 Pro is doing compared to basic PS4.
It does have an upscaler. Otherwise whilst it is docked, the Switch wouldn't be able to upscale it's games to 1080P.
You cant get 1080p games on Switch in portable mode because hardware would need to run at much higher clock at 1080p resolution, that basically means much worse battery life than it actually is. You do realise there is reason why Switch GPU clocks are 40% lower than those in docked mode!?
We aren't talking about running games at 1080P. Do keep up.
That doesn't have anything with "Nintendo decided to cheap out", it has with making best solution for product like Swith where you need to pay atention at battery life also.
Nah. Nintendo cheaped out on the screen.
They even cheaped out on the Tegra chip, but that's a discussion for another day.
Of Course that 720p screen is very acceptable for dedicated gaming device in 2017, and impressions of people who actually tried Switch proves that, like I wrote, all people saying that picture on Switch screen is great, very sharp and bright. For record Switch screen has similar pixel density like iPad Pro.
The iPad Pro has a higher pixel density of 264 pixels per inch.
The Switch has a pixel density of 236.87 pixels per inch.
The iPad Pro has an "okay" 2048 x 1536 on the 9.7" model and 2732 x 2048 on the 12.9" model.
iPad Pro is superior... And that is saying something considering the iPad is far from the best, but is also one of the most expensive tablets.
And that's only the resolution. Remember, Switch cheaped out and is isn't using something like OLED/AMOLED.
720P is a last century resolution, it's not okay in my tablets, it's not okay in my phone, it's not okay on my PC, it's not okay on my TV. Why would I think a Nintendo device should be the exception to the rule? News flash: It shouldn't.
Agree we cant this like this all time, I also gave all answers in previus posts.
Like wrote, It doesn't have "automatic upscaler", but games will built in way that will use extra power of Switch that became available in docked mode for higher resolution in TV mode. Games are built in way that will run at 720p in handheld mode and at higher resolution in docked mode, something similar like PS4 Pro is doing compared to basic PS4.
We are talking about there is no any need for 1080p screen for dedicated gaming device if your games are 720p, thats clear fact that you keep ignore.
No they didn't cheap, its very reasonable decisions, but you can also ignore that. And they don't cheap out with Tegra chip because its actualy best suits for device like Switch.
Yes, because that's why I wrote similar, 264 vs 236.87, that's only 10% difference, thats nothing.
Far more important is pixel density that just resolution, and fact is that Switch and iPad Pro have similar pixel density.
iPad Pro also doenst have AMOLED/OLED and is also using IPS, is that means Apple cheaped out also!? :D And why would Nintendo use something like AMOLED/OLED, when that would effect on higher price of device (even Apple is not using AMOLED/OLED), and when actualy people are saying that IPS Switch screen is great!?
Like I wrote, far more important is pixel density, and 720p for dedicated gaming device where main point is just to playing games at native 720p is enuf. You can't really compare that with phones that are multi functional devices like PCs that are using for so many things outside games, they even have 2k screens but actually mobile games running at 720p. And again what would be a point of 1080p screen if games are 720p!? And we also have fact that all people who tried and all media, that games on Switch screens look great, very sharp and vibrant.
Not only that you have arguments without sense, but you actually totally ignoring some clear facts. Basically all your arguments come "720p screen is low for 2017." while you totaly keep ignoring all clear facts. So having all that on mind, I dont have any more attention to spend any of my time on this arguing.
