The Nintendo Switch is one particular kind of console that seems to get so much attention lately, being the most talked about entry of the company lately in terms of hardware. Sadly, some of the feats within this release may not be as wonderful to note for those interested.

A growing fad for the stronger console kinds has continued to strengthen throughout the months, with one of the latter being the Nintendo Switch. Launched only last October, the Nintendo Switch fell short of some expectations from the fans despite the grown hype. Such starts with the power that was thought to be slightly stronger.

According to recent reports, the Nintendo Switch is rigged with only one teraflop worth, contrary to its competition that go on a much higher promise. This includes the PlayStation 4 Pro, containing 4.2 teraflops and worse, the highly promising Xbox Project Scorpio said to have six teraflops of raw power in it. Overall, the particular console is expected to not reach as high of a caliber than that of the PlayStation 4 games-but a promise says that the company will have a variation of the Tegra chip of Nvidia.

Reports defended that there will be enough power to hold Nintendo type games into the mix, with the company defending that the console will deliver more on quality than horsepower statistics. Because of such claim, it implies that fans should put into consideration that the hardware will not be up to par with the graphics of the rest, but will certainly deliver gaming experience the same way.

It was said that one reason behind such issues happening to the Nintendo Switch is due to the rush that was put into the hardware to meet a certain deadline. This does not imply, however, that there will be a shortage of quality titles in the near future for the recently launched console.
