Nintendo Switch Pro to Use Nvidia Graphics Chip, Support DLSS

We reported a few weeks ago that Nintendo is preparing an upgraded Switch model for debut later this year. Courtesy of Bloomberg, we now have a few more details of what to expect from the unit.

According to the report that featured multiple game developers and sources close to Nintendo, the new Switch will utilize an Nvidia chip that will utilize DLSS. DLSS will need to be coded into feature games, but the technology will allow the device to reproduce 4K visuals when docked.

The report also claims that the new Switch will indeed feature a new CPU and increased/improved memory for better performance all-around. According to the article, the new model could retail for $349.99 or even up to $399.99.

Our Take

We’re really interested to see what comes of this. We commented previously on the lack of a more advanced OLED screen. While we’re pleased to hear of the improvements and implementation of DLSS, it still requires additional developer work rather than simply providing enough horsepower natively. We’re anxious to see the final specs and will share/discuss them as soon as they are announced!
