The rumored Nintendo Switch Pro model will use the latest chip from NVIDIA, having Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support for 4K gaming in docked mode.
For now, that’s what Bloomberg is reporting, according to the sources familiar with the matter. In addition to supporting the AI rendering technique of NVIDIA to allow the visuals to be upscaled to 4K resolution while playing in the TV mode, the new Switch model is also said to feature an upgraded CPU and increased memory.
“DLSS support will require new code to be added to games, so it’ll primarily be used to improve graphics on upcoming titles, said the people, including multiple game developers”, the Bloomberg report reads. This can be related to the recent rumors which claim there will be a selected amount of titles exclusive to the brand-new Nintendo Switch Model.
“There will be some select exclusives, especially from third-party partners,” the ResetEra insider NateDrake wrote earlier this month, thereby another ResetEra user who give back up by saying that there will be exclusives for the Switch Pro. He added, “may not be a big number of them, but I know of at least one.”
Bloomberg wrote earlier this month that the rumored new model would feature a 7-inch 720p Samsung OLED display. “Nintendo decided to go with rigid OLED panels for the new model, the people said, a cheaper but less flexible alternative to the type commonly used for high-end smartphones,” Bloomberg wrote. “The latest model will also come with 4K ultra-high-definition graphics when paired with TVs, they said. That could intensify a longstanding complaint of developers, who have struggled with the difference in resolution between handheld and TV modes and now face a bigger gap between the two.”
According to Bloomberg, Nintendo might release the Switch model at the end of this year. It could have a price tag between $349 and $399.
