You can't make the disparity between docked and undocked too large.  Portable mode already gets a lot of negative attention as it is (see this very thread). 

If anything I find the opposite far more common, the whole "it looks great on the small screen but not so much when you blow it up on a big TV". 

I very doubt anyone would be complaining if in docked mode the GPU ran 20% faster at the Shield's 921MHz clock, allowing for better resolutions in TV mode, where it's more often compared unfavorably to stronger TV-only consoles.

As a I said, this very thread already gave portable mode a negative aspect against the current docked option.  Imagine how more negative it would be if the disparity were larger.

I don't see anyone bashing portable mode. And this is just one small thread on a niche enthusiast forum, its hardly indicative of how the wider consumer base sees the situation. I can't imagine there'd be many complaints at all if Switch stayed as it was in portable mode but ran just a little better when docked. 

So I don't see that as a plausible explanation at all, Nintendo must have had some other incentive to downclock the GPU below the Shield in docked mode. Maybe just to play it on the super safe side in terms of longevity and overheating?



Wait actually I remember this now; if I recall correctly, in the Shield the GPU thermally throttles down to 768MHz when it heats up anyway, so Nintendo just capped it at that for consistency.



You could overclock it but that would bring heat dissipation issues. if they make a tv only version with a better cooling solution they could. You dont want your console overheating cause heat could damage it.

That's a good point. If they ever make a TV only unit they should let those specs work at full potential to get better performance and resolutions.

Anyhow, interesting video. It shows there are some options that could be implemented without impacting performance much if at all. Like visual tweaks so its less blurry.

We also see the CPU in Switch is very capable. Very impressive to see it can actually hit 60 fps when GPU bottleneck is reduced.

This is something I'd be much more interested in seeing than a "Switch Pro"; they've already made a revision that's portable only, it would make sense to provide the flip side of the coin, plus without the screen or battery they could price it even cheaper than the Lite.

As far as Witcher 3 goes, I am interested to see what Saber will deliver with the new update they're hyping up. Perhaps they'll make some of these sort of options available? Or perhaps a performance boost like we saw with the Switch versions of Doom and Wolfenstein II post-launch.

Right, they could probably get it down to $149. Given it will be some sort of microconsole with the Joycon.

And unlike the Vita/Playstation TV, it would actually be compatible with virtually all games.
