Nintendo Switch Pro doesn’t have to be much more powerful than the previous one, it wouldn’t do much according to Engine Software. Here because.
Nintendo Switch is a successful console and the results of the last few months prove it. The platform of the Kyoto house is still far from retirement, but players are increasingly interested in a model “Nintendo Switch Pro“that offers a more performing hardware. According to Engine Software (which deals with porting for Switch), however, the additional power is not neededas it would not actually be used.
Ruud van de Moosdijk of Engine Software, co-founder and vice president, said what he thinks of Nintendo Everything. “Our opinion may be unclear to many, but we are not big fans of a” Pro “model. Sure, it would be nice to have more RAM or faster GPU / CPU than the old model, but if you still consider it the same platform you have to make sure the games run on each model. So, for backward compatibility reasons, your performance is tested on the lowest specs. We have seen in the past that in “enhanced systems” the additional power is never really used. ”
Simply put, according to Engine Software a Nintendo Switch Pro model it wouldn’t have a real impact on the quality of the games. The strength of the Switch, after all, is not so much in the power of the hardware as in the functions of the console and in the software library of the highest level.
For the moment, in any case, the rumors about a Nintendo Switch Pro model are just rumors. The opinion of Engine Software is however perfectly understandable and shareable. What do you think about it?
