Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
You can easily connect an external hard drive via USB if you need more space.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
7.resolution

1280 x 720px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
8.supports ray tracing
Nintendo Switch
Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.

General info

1.Hard drive is replaceable
Nintendo Switch
The internal hard drive can be replaced by the user, for example if you wish to upgrade to a larger storage capacity.
2.Is region free
Nintendo Switch
Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
Devices with an internal power supply are desirable as they don't require a large external "power brick" on the cable. It’s more aesthetically pleasing and an advantage if you have limited space.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
6.width

238.76mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.height

101.6mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
8.volume

339.61cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Connectivity

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Nintendo Switch
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.has an HDMI output
Nintendo Switch
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
Wi-Fi 6, released in 2019, is based on the IEEE 802.11ax wireless LAN standard. Designed to operate in all frequency bands between 1 and 6 GHz, it offers higher data rates and lower latency compared to previous Wi-Fi technologies.

Features

Consoles which have more games offer more choice to the user. It is also an indicator of how popular a console is.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
This means you don’t have to wait for the entire game to download first, as the later stages of the game download while you are playing.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
5.has a touch screen
Nintendo Switch
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
An autostereoscopic screen displays 3D images that can be seen without 3D glasses.
7.Has a secondary screen
Nintendo Switch
A secondary screen complements the main screen, offering an enhanced and improved user experience.
8.has two sensors
Nintendo Switch
The device has two sensors and two lenses. The 3D images may be seen in the parallax-barrier LCD panel without glasses.

Nintendo Switch
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Controllers

More controllers allows you to have more people playing at a time.
A motion controller is a type of game controller that utilizes sensors (such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, and other types of sensors) to track motion and provide input.
The more analog sticks, the more complex the input can be.
With a touchpad, users can control the device by moving their finger on a touch-sensitive surface.
5.Has a wireless controller
Nintendo Switch
The device controllers connect to the console wirelessly, allowing for a tangle free gaming experience.
The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.
