Nintendo Switch performance have been discussed multiple times on the net, but thanks to Eurogamer, we could now know something concrete about this question.

According to a recent report by them, Nintendo doesn’t take full advantage of the Tegra X1 full power, having clock-speeds locked at 768MHz when docked. Things change drastically when Switch isn’t connected to the dock, since its clock-speeds go to 307.2MHz, running 40% slower.

It happens because Nintendo wanted to prevent overheating, also letting the battery last more. So we’ll have a less powerful console.

However, Nintendo has finally shared details regarding Nintendo Switch’s presentation.

Nintendo America, in fact, has claimed that Nintendo Switch presentation will go from 8 p.m. PT to 11 am ET on January 12, 2017.

Also, we’ll probably see a Skyrim version for Nintendo Switch.

Check what Bethesda’s game director, Todd Howard, said during a recent interview with Glixel.

“I love it. I have played with Nintendo Switch and it was really good. Probably the best demo I’ve ever seen at E3. It’s really smart what Nintendo is doing with this console and I’m proud to say that Bethesda is going to support it. It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. Talking about Skyrim, it’s the same game on the TV and on the other screen.”

Will Nintendo Switch performance stay up to people’s expectations?
