Nintendo Switch porting question?

Postby Sonicx9 » August 23rd, 2017, 3:40 pm

Because the Nintendo Switch uses Nvidia GPU architecture (custome Tegra X1 with 4GB of RAM as opposite to 3GB of RAM on the Nvidia Shield/reduced clock speeds), will it be easy to have remastered ports of original Xbox games (example Panzer Dragoon Orta) and PS3 games (example Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch). Or will it be difficult because the Nintendo Switch CPU architecture is ARM based which is very different from original Xbox Pentium III X86 based CPU, and the PS3 uses IBM Power PC Cell based CPU which was very complicated in the first place? Does anyone know it can work or will it be a nightmare because of CPU architecture differences?
