YouTube channel VG Tech has tested the two versions of Fortnite Battle Royale on the Nintendo Switch. This test focuses on the frame rate of both the docked, and undocked versions of the game.

According to YouTube video description, "In docked mode the Switch uses a dynamic resolution with the lowest native resolution found being approximately 1093x615 and the highest native resolution found being 1600x900".

VG Tech goes on to state that "In portable mode the Switch uses a dynamic resolution with the lowest native resolution found being approximately 768x432 and the highest native resolution found being 1280x720".

In the video analyzing the docked performance of Fortnite Battle Royale on the Nintendo Switch, there's a fairly stable rate of 30 frames per second. The only major, and consistent time at which the frame rate dips below 30 is when the player character has just deployed their Glider, and is parachuting down towards the ground. Even then, the frame rate never drops lower than 25 frames per second. There is currently no option to play Fortnite on Switch at 60 frames per second.

VG Tech has even put together a Fortnite spreadsheet, to analyze the performance of the Battle Royale game. In the spreadsheet you'll find all sorts of statistics for the docked version of the game, including total frame amounts, frame tearing statistics, and more.

The Switch version of Fortnite Battle Royale looks pretty impressive, especially when you compare it directly with the PS4 version. While there are some obvious cutbacks, this looks like a great way to play the game anywhere.
