Nintendo Switch does not stop mutating and implementing functionalities and changes. On this occasion, it is news because a hidden feature has been discovered in the video game console that, it seems, was implemented in the last patch. This allows to improve the performance of the CPU to shorten load times.
The news was discovered a few days ago from the GBATemp group and, as you can see accompanying the news in the Twitter message, it means reducing the you wait in video games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Everything seems to indicate that this novelty has been implemented, in a hidden way, through the 8.0.0 update. Switch that arrived a few days ago loaded with features much in demand by fans. However, the reasons that would lead to Nintendo to hide as powerful as this one, and not to make it public in the notes of the patch, are unknown.
It seems that although this information is far from being officially confirmed and comes from the fans, this so-called “boost mode” could improve the CPU speed of the hybrid videogame console from 1GHz to 1.75GHz
Both veteran and upcoming titles would benefit from this improvement, and within the latter we could find the catalog of more varied games for Switch that promises Nintendo for the future.
