 Having said that, the difference isn’t as big as the general perception would have you believe. 

Some shot of reality for some users. 

Its about how good the engine is, and how smart they devs are at optimisation.

Look at Fortnite on the iPhoneX, thats crazy how good it looks for a mobile game.
Digital Foundry compaired the Iphone X version to the Xbox One X.

This isnt a "switch is more powerfull than people think" moment, its a ARK devs use a bad engine/cant optimis their games thingy.

Fortnite and Ark use the exact same engine.  This is purely a developer thing though I hear they have gotten better at optimizing as time has gone on.



The game doesn't even look all that fun but it has dinosaurs so it is on my radar because of that.

Personally, I find this as really good news as I feel like the type of games that can come out on the Switch is broadening. Now I expect this to run at 5 FPS whenever there is a Dinosaur on the screen because screw optimization.

Edit: Apparently this game runs on 30FPS and might run better than on other consoles. That's is hilarious!

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

ARK runs on Unreal Engine? O_O 
I guess your right, its just the devs are horrible at optisation then.

because what the fortnite devs could do with it, on a mobile phone is crazy impressive.



This is getting unreal, and it's also coming to iOS. So madness....

Cool I guess...also is this the game where they were making some minecraft type spinoff?



That's unexpectedly (but nice) if know at what resolution runs on PS4 and XB1.
