Experts evaluate the energy efficiency of the new Switch

A month ago, Nintendo introduced the updated Switch prefix, a significant advantage of which was to be increased autonomy with the previous dimensions of the device.
Digital Foundry decided to figure out and find out if the operating time of the new version of the set-top box, from recharging to recharging, was longer, and if so, how it happened. The company's experts confirmed the rumors that a large increase in energy efficiency is provided by the presence of the NVIDIA Tegra X1 chip, which is made using 16-nanometer technology instead of the previous one working on 20-nanometer technology.
The updated chip increases the autonomy of the device by 64-78% and even slightly improves performance - during the tests, an increase of several FPS is noticeable.
