What a reporter says doesn't matter when it's speculation. I was expecting minimum x1 level performance and they somehow manage to shock me.

How? It's Nintendo. They've been pulling this s*** for a decade.

Switch is Nintendo's next handheld console. Don't worry, my friend works at Nintendo and he said that something far more powerful than X1 Scorpio is going to be announced next year.

On a serious note, the slight lack of power shouldn't be a problem if PS4 and Xbone multiplats are very easy to port.

Still they'd look like s***, have horrible frame rates and people would not buy them on the Switch. You know how that turned out for Wii U?

Wii U was significantly less powerful than PS4 and Xbone. Switch is (from what's been rumored so far) going to be almost as powerful as the Xbone, if not slightly more powerful. A Japanese journalist had written that the switch GPU will be up to 1.5TF which is more than Xbox One's 1.3 http://www.4gamer.net/games/990/G999026/20161021062/

The Tegra X1 = 1.1TF, enough for Xbone ports, but the one in Switch will be customized which means even more power. I don't know why they would go for less, honestly. What is the credibility of the person posting this rumor?

wasn't the switch like 150 GFLOPS?

The nintendo free pass

It isn't a free pass. It is expected unless you are delusional in thinking Nintendo will suddenly shift their focus.

They won't. Their way of thinking is embedded into their culture and they aren't trying to build the best thing, they are just trying to build the most different.

Then you really haven't been keeping up with Nintendo's numbers. I don't mean the hardware side. I mean the software side.
