Analyst believes that Nintendo Switch’s resolution will be 1440p

Contrary to other reports indicated, Akira Yasuda, an analyst at Ace Research Institute, does not believe that the resolution of Nintendo Switch is between 1080p and 720p depending on the mode in which it is used. According to the expert, the new Nintendo console could have resolution between 1080p and WQHD (1440p).

This information comes from Takashi Mochizuki, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, who shared recent statements by Yasuda. Thus, the expert thinks that Switch will have 1080p resolution on its portable mode and can achieve resolutions up to 1440p when it is in the dock.

What is curious is that there are very few televisions in the market that have this resolution, since we usually find it on computer monitors; however, there is always the possibility that Switch uses super sampling on 1080p displays. In addition, Other rumors indicate that the Switch screen will have 720p resolution, reason why it would not take full advantage of the images in 1080p.

In other technical details, Yasuda assures that Switch uses Displayport technology via USB-C. It also points out that the internal bus speed is 5Gbps, higher than the Nintendo 3DS (128Mbps).

This was not all that Yasuda mentioned. According to report of Mochizuki, the analyst noted that it is likely that the VR technology patented by Nintendo will not be used. He also mentioned that recent records related to Switch point out that its architecture is designed for open-world games.

It is important to note that this information should not be taken as a fact, since it is only the opinion of an analyst of a research firm. So, it is best to wait for Nintendo to announce something official about it.

As you know, Nintendo will share more information about Nintendo Switch on January 12. Considering previous presentations of the company, there is unlikely to know about the technical specifications of the Switch and that we will only become aware of its release date, price and games.
