The accessory to play with Nintendo Switch in 4k

While waiting for a Pro model that is not yet seen on the horizon, it is possible to play immediately with the Nintendo Switch in 4K thanks to a particular accessory presented on Kickstarter. Called 4K Gamer Pro, this plug and play gadget is about the size of a USB pen and acts as a link between the console and the TV, improving the quality from the original full hd to precisely the 4k, however, with a fluidity of 60 frames per second, promising not to create lag and also providing three different levels of optimization.

The big limitation of Nintendo Switch compared to rival new generation consoles is the ability to offer 4k and 60 fps graphics, limiting itself at full hd (1080p) and 30 fps which are a bit grainy and not very fluid when connected to a large tv in dock mode. For some time there have been rumors of a Switch Pro that natively supports 4K, but even the renewed OLED model for now remains at full hd resolution. With 4K Gamer Pro, however, you can perform a sort of instant upgrade, bridging this gap.
