Draw Distance

The draw distance is a measurement of how far away a game object will be rendered from the player. Since with higher resolution and good PC config, your draw distance becomes clearer that means your target that are far are visible clearly. So in PC, you will get a much clearer view of far targets as compared to what you see on twitch.

Depth of Field

The effect of blurring things in the background is known as depth of field. Depth-of-field can be utilized to highlight a certain aspect of a scene. If enabled it will make far distance things blurry while only focusing on your center screen as the center of the camera. On PC you will get better DOF than Switch.


Shadow means when light falls on an object, a black area is generated. This adds more details to the scene and lets you enjoy more the environment. For both PC and Switch the shadows do not really play a major role and both have the shadow tearing issue.


Textures can be described as the techniques that make the scenery outstand on another level. On PC you can easily get better textures than Switch due to various reasons like resolution, config, and more.
