Moreover, one or more client processors may be further configured to wirelessly transmit the encoded and formatted portion of the next frame of video data. The processor device may…

4A Games popular Metro series is seemingly making a debut on Nintendo Switch. There is a PEGI rating for Metro Redux that says we will soon be seeing the game on Nintendo Switch. The game has a PEGI 18 rating on Nintendo Switch, the same as other devices. Metro Exodus will be the first game in the series to release on Nintendo Switch.

The good news is that Switch’s hardware handled The Witcher 3 pretty well and there are rumors of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to Switch as well. If the console is able to handle both of these games, Metro Exodus should be a piece of cake, a giant piece of cake to swallow, but nonetheless, a cake. The Nintendo Switch is powered by Nvidia’s custom TEGRA chip. Metro…
