Digital Foundry: Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition Handheld Super-Samples From 1080p Rather Than Dropping Resolution

The hard-working team over at Digital Foundry have confirmed what we all suspected and that is Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition running in handheld mode on the Nintendo Switch actually super-samples from 1080p, rather than actually dropping the resolution. The team also says that Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has big performance advantages over the original on the Wii U, but it’s not as great as it could have been. You can watch their video on the game, below.

      1. Hmm… Pascal didn’t exsist in 2015 and Super-Sampling haven’t had any new development the last 20 years or so. But no doubt Switch have a highly advance scaling method, yeah.

    ths also pro es switch is far more capable than is being seen say indies and some big games are not as good as the y could be

    1. “This might also mean if the Switch sees an upgrade”
      Did you even read my comment?

      I said if the Switch gets an Upgraded version we could see 4k Visuals that are Super-Sampled in 1080p on the Switch Pro model. Why do you guys never read the comment before you reply?

      1. It’s highly unlikely that Switch will have a 4K handheld scaler. It literally needs a minimum 4x faster GPU and a CPU too match it. X1 isn’t the best out there, but it will be hard to pass it that far anytime soon, at least without SLI. And power consumption for something like that on the go will be quite hefty as well.

      2. Yeah, but Switch still does run on handheld hardware even when docked. X1 scores 3150 points in Sling Shot Extreme, and since the Switch’s X1 is downclocked to a 3/4 of a stock one, we can just assume that Switch would score 2360 points, and that’s the score which makes HW run 1080p downscaling. A Snapdragon 845 gets 4260 (which are one of the more stronger chips). That’s not even doubled power. 4K SS will need about 4x X1’s performance. We will have to wait a while unless they use SLI, but I doubt that will happen anytime soon.

        And dude. Chill. I’m not attacking you. I’m just trying to have a healthy conversation about how realistic this is/what have to be done to make this possible.
