At the moment, Nintendo has not said anything about this Nintendo Switch Pro, but Nvidia have suffered cyberattacks that have leaked this information. That is the reason why in the last weeks we have seen Nintendo being trending topic on social media. We have being seeing rumours about this console for years, and this looks like the most believable one.
There are no doubts about the Nintendo Switch is still one of the best handheld console of this new generation. The first system became five years ago, and it is still one of the most sold consoles. They look like they want a new system, that could be this Nintendo Switch Pro during the next months.
This new Switch Pro will be the more powerful one. They will come with API graphics, with ray tracing support and DLSS, which means that it will utilise AI to turbocharge its graphics increasing framerate and resolution beyond what would otherwise be possible. It will play games in 4K, and there are further references to T234 and T239 chips – the T234 packing a 2048 Ampere GPU CUDA core and 12x ARM Cortex-A78AE 64-bit cores if you want to get in to the nitty gritty.
There are no certain about what will be the date we will have this console, but there are some rumours from reliable sources who say that Nintendo is preparing for an autumn launch, maybe this Nintendo Switch Pro? We will see.
About the price, there are no rumours, but comparing with the launch of the other Switch’s versions, this will be more expensive, for example, the original one costed $300 when it was launches, and the Switch OLED costed $350, so is expected to cost like OLED version, even more.
