Nintendo Switch is rumored to be underpowered, as opposed to what previous reports indicate. With a Maxwell GPU instead of Pascal, the likely horsepower of the 2017 Nintendo Switch appears to be more similar to Wii U, rather than the Xbox One and PS4. That said, reports suggest that the new console will be facing a difficult battle in the tech industry. The following suggests why underpowered specs will not be good for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch Specs Say It Is To Come With Difficult Ports

Given the rumored Nintendo Switch specs, massive open-world games like the "Mass Effect: Andromeda" would need considerable downgrades to run on the console, taking significant time and money to make the product look worse. This explains why some older games that do not require much effort to run are being kicked around for Nintendo Switch, such as "Dark Souls 3."

Nintendo Switch Has Effect On Creative Vision

According to reports, the problem with creating games for Nintendo Switch with underpowered specs is that the developers are not allowed to do whatever they want to do. The graphical fidelity or the length of experience is expected to change in order to make this happen, unlike the Xbox One and PS4, which are reported to be more powerful than developers even require.  Reports suggest that when other game consoles are not as limiting, the goal to create original games for Nintendo Switch gets diminished.

Nintendo Switch Release Is March 2017

Nintendo Switch is rumored to release on March 2017, according to report. Meanwhile, reports also suggest that Nintendo Switch will boast 1 teraflop of performance that is below the PS4 and Xbox One, including the PS4 Pro and Xbox One Scorpio.

Also, the official lineup of Nintendo Switch games is expected to be released, as the company gears up the for the release date of Nintendo Switch. Based on reports, the games list is being headlined by the "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, though more games are believed to be announced at the Switch event in January, Express reported.
