There have been so many rumors swirling around about a Switch Pro, it’s hard to keep track. This time, it’s a feature about the potential console’s hardware containing Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support.
A Bloomberg report cites sources who are close to the project and confirmed the new Switch revision will feature a new SoC (system on chip) from Nvidia. The new chip will feature better CPU performance and additional memory, helping the Switch reach the 4K output previous reported.
If this is all true, the biggest addition would be the DLSS. It’s been exclusive to PC, with Nvidia using the upscaling technology to drastically increase performance at higher resolutions with little to no impact on visual quality.
Nintendo has repeatedly denied the claims of the console existence, but it has been reported they will reveal it sometime this year. It was also reported Nintendo is to being production on them in June. Previous reports suggested the upgraded Switch would sport a bigger 7‑inch screen with an OLED panel and improved battery life.
