All About the Nintendo Switch 2

A previous report hinted that the chip in the Nintendo Switch 2 might not match up to the Xbox Series S in terms of performance. This claim is supported by the YouTuber in their video suggesting that although the Switch 2 could approach the capabilities of Microsoft’s budget console it may have frame rates. Based on expected specs it is anticipated that when connected to a TV the Switch 2’s performance will be on par with that of the PS4 Pro with a comparison also made to Microsoft’s generation Xbox One X.

The YouTuber predicts that even if Nintendo decides to use clock speeds and implement cooling techniques the Switch 2’s GPU performance may surpass that of the Steam Deck by 20 30% albeit, with less powerful CPU performance specifically geared towards gaming. As a result, the Switch 2 could potentially achieve 720p high resolution with light ray tracing at 30 frames per second, compared to the Steam Deck’s 720p low resolution at 40 frames per second.
