Really really fast BASIC handheld

RE: Really really fast BASIC handheld

Because I'm curious, I bought SmileBasic 4 for the Nintendo switch.

And I don't like the new version. Especially the editor is using a tiny font on the switch screen. It's really hard to distinguish a "0" and a "8", because the zero has a nearly horizontal line inside.

But I tried to use the 8 queen benchmark test with exactly the same BASIC code on my switch witn the first hardware revision.

By 1000 repeated loop, I got

Switch 1. HW version with Smilebasic 4:
2.67 seconds without docking station
2.93 seconds with docking station

new DSXL with SmileBasic 3:
11.98 seconds.

The switch is only 4 times faster as a new 2DSXL.
I thought it should be more.

And the switch was in the docking station slower!

Maybe because of the higher resolution in the docking station, but the program shows 2 text lines at the start and 2 text lines at the end.

I think I still using the 2DS, because my 2DS fits in my shirt pocket, my switch definitly not.
