It has been rumoured for quite some time now that Nintendo is working on a more powerful version of its popular Nintendo Switch system which has gained the moniker of the Switch Pro. Nintendo hasn’t announced or confirmed anything, but Reset Era member and known industry insider Nate Drake has commented on its existence and is reasonably confident it will be coming this year. The insider says that the Switch Pro will be feature DLSS (Deep learning super sampling) which is a resolution upscaling tool from Nvidia and it also supports 4K resolution when the Switch is presumably docked.
“Won’t really talk more about the tech specs than I have. It has DLSS & it has 4k functionality. No reason to go deeper than that right now. That’s enough to illustrate the device is a meaningful upgrade. First party support with span the new hardware and current Switch for at least a couple of years. We were shown as much yesterday & I talked about it on my latest podcast.”
“Let’s say I’m confident it gets announced this year.
A delay to 2022 would need to be communicated in the next few months, as dev kits and third-party partners begin to plan software for the device. As of this very moment (Feb 18, 2021), I believe the hope remains for a 2021 launch.”
