Rumours suggest it will be powered by the new Nvidia graphics chip card
In a new report by Bloomberg, details surrounding the long rumoured upgraded Nintendo Switch model have been unveiled. Sources close at hand have stated the new Switch will be adopting an upgraded chip from Nvidia Corp.
To encapsulate what this Nvidia chip is and how it enhances the new Switch can be stated as follows: Nvidia’s chip contains Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), an image upscaling technology that bolsters processing, CPU, memory and graphics. When plugged to a TV, the console delivers 4K quality visuals and is specifically designed for upcoming titles. Though the DLSS chip offers more power for the Switch, it still lags behind the ones used by Sony and Microsoft.
Bloomberg speculates that the new Switch’s pricing will range between $350-400 US dollars (AUS $460-526) and will include a Samsung 7-inch OLED screen.
The same sources also disclosed that the new Switch will launch at the end of year shopping season. The report notes that DLSS support requires a new code for games, and believes an abundance of upcoming games will coincide with the new Switch’s launch.
