I wouldn't get overly excited about this. It's a bug that creates some GPU overhead when using the dynamic resolution feature Shinen incorporates in Fast RMX, not necessarily something that impacts every game published on the system.
Definitely interested to see what impact this has on Zelda. I've played majority of that game casually on portable mode, and every time I go docked the framerate inconsistencies are immediately noticeable.
I don't suppose there was any info about when this update might arrive? If it locks RMX at 1080 and potentially (hopefully) might tidy up zeldas fps even just a little it makes me feel like resisting playing until it arrives. I want to experience these games at their best.
If it can make Zelda and FAST more stable, that'd be neat. The thing with the vSync in Zelda is that even the slightest dip in performance sends the game careening down to 20 FPS. So even a slight improvement should help with the edge cases, I think.
I'm not sure i understand Dark's conclusion about this. Maybe Shin'en wording was different from how it was reported? Because a drain of GPU resources, if fixed, *can* *potentially* improve performances in games like Zelda.
So it sounds like this is related to the WiFi - and won't fix the heavy foliage area framerate drops in BOTW.
While some have pointed to this as being a problem with the console's power (or lack of it) we've been speaking to a third-party Switch developer - who chooses to remain anonymous - and they've informed us of a known issue with the console's Wi-Fi connection which places additional load on the processor.
JunkRabbit also confirms this is the case, and has discovered that since turning off the Wi-Fi auto-connect option in System Settings, the problems have vanished
You can also enable Flight Mode to disable the console's wireless connections. It's worth noting that Flight Mode doesn't work when you dock the Switch.
Our anonymous developer has confirmed that Nintendo is aware of the problem and that a fix will be included in a forthcoming firmware update.
