About this deal

It can't be stressed enough though, Dreamcast users - and by extension anyone with a Gamecube and HDMI adapter - will see tangible upgrades using this. These manifest as a faint white halo effect around high contrast points, though it's not overly obtrusive.

One way to improve the upscaling would be an external upscaler like the Marseille mClassic, and another would be a TV with stronger upscaling, like the much much more expensive Sony X95K.While the Switch looks great in the dock, many of the games simply do not have the resources to compete with the PS4 or Xbox One, and this is where the MClassic shines. To get the optimal performance, set-up your Nintendo Switch to output 720p, its native built-in graphic performance, then enable the mClassic, and you will see astonishing results on a 4K or even 1080p TV or monitor. The most obvious upgrade we see there is sharpening to those edges, if anything, rather than a smoother appearance. While it won’t work for every game or movie you throw at it, but when it works, the results are noticeable and a welcome surprise. On smaller TVs, poor or no anti-aliasing isn’t much of an issue because the picture is too small for the jagged edges to stand out.

Our product is designed to enhance your viewing experience, bringing an unmatched level of clarity, vibrancy, and authenticity to your favorites. Advertised as a kind of external graphics card, many claims are made for this product, especially across social media where we've seen it described variously as a 4K upscaler, a 1440p upscaler, a means to improve retro gaming graphics and even as a Switch Pro-like upgrade. It also have a free anti-aliasing level given to anything passing through it (smoothing edges that have stair-stepping/jaggies/aliasing.

It relies on a micro USB cable to give it power, drawing just 1W of power at peak to drive an on-board ASIC processor. If you're on a Nintendo Switch or Xbox One, and see a game that has a lot of "jaggy" edges, then you'll want to use the mClassic because you'll see a noticeable amount of anti-aliasing. Marseille's mClassic is a new and improved version of the mCable Gaming Edition we covered a couple of years ago.

And, speaking of the mClassic's ability to make a world more visually arresting, just take a look at how it injects Pokemon Sword with far enhanced background object definition. Given the rise of UHD TV sets it would have been useful, but at least, the other benefits of the mClassic do show up, even at the peak 1080p output. The parameters are easier to predict, more so than modern games with varying resolutions, AA methods and complex shaderwork.She also loves checking out new gaming accessories like iPhone controllers and has her ear to the ground when it comes to covering the next big trend. And, simply put, the Marseille mClassic fixed this issue for me, upscaling the images from the Switch, adding various beneficial graphical effects to them, a As when I read the advertisement it touted itself as a 1440 device which is Quad HD, however when I got the Box it refers to itself as 4K Device. ULTIMATE GAMING ACCESSORY: mClassic is the world’s first plug-and-play graphics cardthat boosts your game console’s graphicsin real-time to produce clean, sharp images. There's perhaps a degree of nostalgia attached to seeing those pixels left raw, but in my experience it adds more than it detracts.

Standard mClassic PS2 games such as Soul Calibur 2 support progressive output from the system, which again allows the mClassic to work more effectively in treating rough edges, plus add a light colour saturation to the image. Power Stone is delivered here at 480p via a Dreamcast VGA adapter, where the adapter enhances colour more noticeably than modern 720p and 1080p content. It's the mClassic doing its job, but it sadly undoes the aesthetic of the game; those pixels are meant to be shown raw. Even retro platforms like Sega Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube (that run at 480p) look better than ever. Games that feature poor anti-aliasing like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild look quite smooth on my 4K TV.Thankfully, Marseille includes an HDMI adapter that’s perfectly sized to fit in that compartment and allow you to connect the mClassic just outside of it (bottom cable, below).
