    Anyways, on Chapter 3 of XBC 2 (Xenoblade Chronicles 2). GREAT game. I recommend TV mode, as you can see more details.
    It's a mobile platform. You can't make a game for a tablet and expect it to run like a typical console, let alone a high-end PC. It's really no different than the lesser performance of Vita games vs PS3 / PS4. The hardware is a balance of performance and energy.

    But, yeah, it still seems to still need some performance refinements. Like any machine, it's going to take some time.

    Nothing stopping them from opting for performance over whatever it is they aim for.

    Portability?

    You could always get a gas generator or nautical battery for your PeeSea and take it with you.

    That shouldn't be a concern in docked mode.

    I wonder if some Switch games will be "docked mode optimized/preferred" where it's to the point, portable mode with a game will be seriously borked ? Thoughts!

    ARM architecture isn't really up on the core throttling / halting like Intel is. In some ways, Intel might have been a better option for a portable unit that utilizes this technology in the same way that a laptop CPU will use dynamic frequency scaling / SpeedStep or similar. I think though that the ARM choice was more of a decision for improved future interations.

    The GPUs are another story though. I think that Nintendo is playing mostly with reducing GPU processing load.

    The biggest issue is just a lack of optimization. Lots of sloppy Intel ports now that load the hardware down.

    4k while docked and reverts to 8 bit mode while portable (akin to the VMUs style games)

    Well, what about a dedicated GPU dock in the future? But then that would make the Switch tethered to that for the sake of better graphics/performance, than on the go.

    I should add that ARM A73 is supposed to address some of these things though, aimed at more performance for certain types of mobile applications that need to compete more with desktop offerings.
