Based on our tests, Nintendo and Nvidia's emulation work has a lot in common with Xbox One X's enhancement of Xbox 360 games, in that Super Mario Galaxy benefits from a 3x increase in resolution on the X and Y axis, resulting in a 9x boost to pixel count overall. That yields a curious 1920x1404 resolution - a 30 per cent boost over standard 1080p that's downscaled to the display output.
This always confuses me, are they talking about a TV or Tablet because there's also a Nvidia Shield Tablet which I have but every time I see it mentioned they're talking about some sort of TV or something.
I think people are impatiently waiting and begging for the GameCube/Wii emulator...that is running Galaxy and Kart Wii and stuff on the Nvidia Shield in China...to be released on the Switch so we can buy/play all GC/Wii games on the Switch through whatever VC type service they plan on implementing.
This isn’t really about people begging to play Mario Kart Wii on the Switch right now..
Have you missed all the people clamoring for GCN/Wii/ ANY type of VC on Switch? When the games people want as a VC game on Switch are actively being emulated with enhancements on a system extremely similar to Switch, of course fans are going to be annoyed and want them on Switch as well.
It’s not about Mario Kart Wii. Super Mario gamaxy and Twilight Princess were also already emulated on the shield in this manner.
Is the Mario Kart series even popular for speedrunning? I know it is for individual races, but I don't believe complete runs are as popular. The Shield's improved loading times are not important for the former.
