mClassic Graphics Card

The mClassic adds an additional external graphics card to upgrade the output of your favorite video game console. By plugging the tiny dongle into an HDMI port, you can upscale games to 1440p resolution, improve image sharpening and depth of field, and add anti-aliasing. We love using this on the Switch, where you can even select what kind of upscaling you want (with separate settings for modern and retro upscaling), all with no lag.
