Patch is live now
"Secret Patch Notes" are becoming a widespread phenomenon, and a recent update for the Nintendo Switch just jumped to the top of the pack.
Included in the 8.0.0 Update Multiple modding communities include the ability to allow "boost mode" for specific switch games. Think of all the "slim" models of earlier hardware generation, which allow faster load times: something like Switch. It overclocks the CPU in situations where it has been properly tested (read: now only for first-party games) and shortens loading times by as much as 10 seconds in some cases. There is further evidence that this overclocking method could be used for visual enhancements, but further testing is needed.
Currently, only the games support Zelda: Breath of the Wild and […] Mario Odyssey but this opens the floodgates for the future, especially if the rumor is "Switch Pro" (at least not on the E3 will be) becomes real. In the short term, Zelda is just the kind of game that could benefit from shorter load times: it's the perfect opportunity for another play through in addition to the VR update to overlook prospects.
