As time goes by, video game companies are now competitive enough on the rapid evolution of technology. One of these is Nintendo, a multinational Japanese consumer electronics and software company which is located in Kyoto, Japan. This company unveils its new gaming console named Nintendo Switch.
The console will be out on March 2017. Nintendo Switch is a combination of tablet, handheld and a home console in one.
This will function in two ways. If you are at home, it rests in a dock that connects to your TV. You can undock the device showing a tablet with a built-in screen. If you are going somewhere, you can take the tablet wherever you go to continue playing.
Players will be able to detach two joysticks easily from the sides of the console; you can use it when going out. Nintendo named the two joystick “Joy-Con” controllers. The Switch will have its own little card-based cartridges. However, it doesn’t support any DVD or Blu-ray-style discs.
Nintendo Switch Specs
Nintendo Switch will be powered by a custom NVIDIA mobile Tegra processor and the X1 chip that’s already in use for the Shield Android TV console and the Google Pixel C tablet. For the device’s screen resolution, it is currently unknown. The Tegra X1 is capable of 1080p visuals, but a 720p output could yield better results.
Likewise, this Nintendo system will not be competing with the latest generation hardware. So don’t expect PS4 or Xbox One quality visuals. The purpose of using Tegra is it will strike a balance between the energy and power efficiency to maintain battery life. Above is the Nintendo Switch official trailer.
