Its not typically used in 4K gaming if thats what you mean. But that doesnt discount it as relevant for the Switch. Since max resolution on the Switch is 1080P.

FP16 doesnt depend on resolution....... its just as good for 1080p as it is for 4k.

In far Cry 5, some parts of the water calculations can be done with FP16.
This means when you are in area overlooking alot of water, or doing things in the water, it might run slightly faster.

But the water part, only makes up a small amount of the stuff the GPU has to do, for you to see the game.
Thats why I said FP16 doesnt make a huge differnce.

There are limits to what you can use this tech for, without heavy drawbacks.
Which is why it wont make a drastic differnce for most of the game.

Think of it as a way to get like +10% performance in certain area's of a game.
Thats pretty much what it amounts too, it doesnt just magically make the Switch twice as powerfull.

I would think its higher than 10% but i would have to read about it more. And i read that its typically not used as much in 4K because it becomes too noticeable.



I think there are definitely better threads to discuss the Switch specs and how powerful it is. I'd prefer if the discussion got back to the topic at hand.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I think 2019 will be a great year for gaming! There are a lot of games I am looking forward to across all systems.

I predict Switch specs get better with a new model.

"New Nintendo Switch Model Reportedly Planned for 2019"

Hey it might happend, theres been various rumors about it atleast.

 

Also agree about the there being better place to talk specs, but people need to stop saying "switch = 1tflop" thingy when its not true.
So every thread someone brings it up, people should be pointing out thats not true.

- The major GOTY contenders will be Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, DOOM Eternal, and Ghost of Tsushima. Though it's going to be a very even race between the three, and there wont really be a consensus as to who won definitively, with the vote being split.

Well, just one month in and this didnt age well. Resident Evil 2 at 91 metacritic will definitely be a big contender for GOTY, right?
