Fortnite receives GPU performance and resolution boost on Switch
Today, Nintendo Switch owners can enjoy an enhanced Fortnite experience, with a significant resolution increase across Handheld and Docked mode. By upgrading Fortnite’s renderer on the Nintendo Switch to make better use of the console’s GPU, players can expect a 38% increase in pixels in handheld mode, which means images are less blurry without loss of performance.
|Handheld||1000 x 560||1170 x 660|
|Docked||1390 x 780||1560 x 880|
This update also provides a more consistent frame rate for Fortnite Nintendo Switch players, with fewer hitches, and will save players about 140MB of store space.
The screenshots below show how the game’s visuals looked before and after the new update.
