It is no secret that the Nintendo Switch is not as powerful of a console when compared to the likes of the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One X, both which support 4K gaming. We’re sure this is something many gamers were probably thinking when Fortnite was officially announced for the Switch.

For those wondering how the game handles on the Switch, YouTube channel VG Tech put the game to the test in a frame rate test. According to the test, it seems that Fortnite on the Switch manages to maintain a somewhat steady 30 frames per second. There was an instance in which it dipped to 25 frames per second, but otherwise it is still very much playable. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any way to make it so that the game runs at 60 frames per second.

We’re not sure if that was by design to ensure a consistent experience, or if the Switch is simply not capable. As for resolution, it was found that when the console is docked, it will be around 900p, but that will drop to 720p in handheld mode. This to be expected as many games tend to drop in terms of resolution when played in handheld mode. However given the size of the screen, we’re not sure if it will be too noticeable anyway.
