In terms of resolution, there is a slight difference. Doom may have a slightly higher resolution in some areas, but the change is small enough where most players won’t be able to detect changes.

Doom Switch tech analysis

Digital Foundry is back with a new Switch technical analysis. Doom, which pushes the system to its max, is one very interesting title to look at.

It’s to be expected, but Doom’s visual quality has dropped on Switch. It has an adaptive resolution, with it usually sitting at around 600p when docked. The depth-of-field buffer and alpha effects appear to be rendered at a quarter resolution. Temporal anti-aliasing can make the action look a bit blurry on the big screen.
