Recently, Nintendo has released a new firmware for Switch, which has added sorting games to different categories, transferring saves and the ability to disable the VR function via parental settings. Later, enthusiasts and managers found that the 8.0.0 firmware allows the overclock system to set the processor frequency to 1.75 MHz in certain situations. This feature was noticed by fans of the popular Retrohower Ambulatory, after telling about Channel Discovery on Discord.
Next, Nintendo has released updates for the Legend of Zelda: Breath of Super Mario Wild Odyssey. After installing updates, both games began to load much faster. Users of the GBATemp forum indicate that during download, the processor starts to work at increased frequency, returning to normal values when the game finishes loading.
Here are some comparative examples of Breath of the Wild after installing the new firmware and updating 1.6.0:
- Download Save: 21 seconds vs. 31 (under previous build)
- Fast movement on map: 11 seconds vs 19
- Enter the dungeon: 7 seconds to 10
It's curious some developers will use turbo mode for their ports for Switch. For example, the upgrade version of the switch requires a significant improvement. Can this situation seriously affect the quality of the graphics in Mortal Kombat 11?
