In portable mode, Nintendo will Switch to lower graphics quality settings in games
According to the latest rumors, Nintendo will Switch based on the newest Tegra X1 SoC, and even with the reduced GPU frequencies. Of course, game developers will be able to Switch to «squeeze» out of the platform high, but while there are concerns about its possibilities.
For example, one of the users of NeoGAF found in the code of the Unreal Engine 4, which is supported by the new Nintendo console, the indication that the games for that console by default will be exhibited medium or low graphics quality settings.
And the settings are different for portable and desktop mode Switch when the console is installed in the docking station, which confirms information about the difference in the frequencies of the GPU. That is, in tablet mode, the game will run on the worst graphics settings to compensate for lower performance.
