Digital Foundry analyses Overwatch

Online multiplayer shooter Overwatch recently was released to the Nintendo Switch and a lot of you were interested to see how it performs.

This is where Digital Foundry usually comes in. The tech focussed team at Digital Foundry have examined the game and it runs at 900p while docked and 720p when in handheld mode.

Digital Foundry notes

On closer inspection, there is much more to it. With dynamic resolution scaling in play.

It’s a dynamic 900p when docked, with a horizontal scaler delivering a minimum of 1152×900 under load. Similarly, portable play is a native 720p in the best case, but again, the horizontal scaler seems to deliver a 960×720 resolution with the engine under stress.

As we know the game runs at 30fps though as expected it can vary depending on the situation, hence why there’s no cross-play with other consoles or the PC as Xbox One and PlayStation 4 run at a much higher 60fps.

Have you picked up Overwatch – Legendary Edition on Nintendo Switch yet? If so what are your thoughts on how it holds up?
