Nintendo Switch Pro coming late this year might not be very Pro at all

While the debate over the best gaming console in the market will never really be settled, it's hard to deny that the Switch has at least managed to keep Nintendo from falling off the ring. When it comes to raw power, however, even hardcore Switch fans will be forced to admit that the handheld console is far below even the current-gen Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
