Nintendo Switch to get an NVIDIA chip upgrade this year with support for DLSS

We’ve heard the rumors for the new Nintendo Switch for a while now, and a report earlier this month pointed to 4K support and a 7-inch OLED screen. After nearly four years, the Nintendo Switch is finally going to get a performance upgrade and we can expect an announcement around the year-end shopping season.

Bloomberg has claimed that the upgraded model of Nintendo Switch will be equipped with a new Nvidia chipset, citing sources familiar with the situation. They also hinted towards a new chipset that is expected to feature Deep Learning Super Sampling, or DLSS, that uses artificial intelligence to deliver higher-quality graphics more efficiently. The new NVIDIA chipset is also expected to offer better CPU performance and increased memory.

Since the Nvidia Tegra X1 uses Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 cores(debuted in smartphones in 2015), new CPU cores would be a long-overdue upgrade for the Switch processor. Theoretically, upgraded CPU cores would enable faster performance in CPU-bound games and faster loading times in general. There is no information on other SoC details, such as the GPU and whether this is an all-new design. But this wouldn’t be the only big upgrade for the upcoming console, according to Bloomberg.

The company further claimed that the upgraded Switch will support Nvidia’s DLSS technology, which uses neural networks to upscale graphics. This tech will eventually allow the new Switch model to hit 4K resolutions when connected to a TV.

An analyst at Bloomberg suggested that an upgraded console could be priced at $349.99 to $399.99, making for a $50 to $100 premium over the current model.
