Rumored Nintendo Switch 2 May Struggle to Output in 4K, Sources Say
Speculations have been swirling around the highly anticipated successor to the Nintendo Switch, suggesting that the new console may face challenges in achieving 4K output. Reports indicate that the custom Nvidia T239 chip, which is believed to power the Switch 2, lacks deep learning accelerator (DLA) capability.
Sources close to the development of the Switch 2 have revealed that the absence of DLA in the T239 chip could potentially impact the DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) upscaling capabilities of the console. Consequently, it is speculated that the Switch 2 might be limited to 1080p resolution, with the possibility of reaching 1440p in certain games.
It is important to note that these estimates are based on similar hardware and have not been officially confirmed. However, rumors about the inclusion of DLSS and the Tegra 239 graphics chip have been circulating within the gaming community for over a year.
Nintendo, known for keeping tight-lipped about its upcoming hardware, has neither confirmed nor denied these rumors. They have also dismissed any suggestions of conducting demonstrations for their partners. The gaming giant is expected to unveil the Switch 2 sometime next year, leaving fans eagerly awaiting more details.
One concern surrounding the eagerly anticipated console is its backward compatibility. Gamers are anxious to know whether their existing Nintendo Switch game library will be compatible with the new console. Unfortunately, no official information regarding this issue has been disclosed so far.
As we enter the new year, it is expected that more information regarding the Nintendo Switch 2 will become available. Fans are hoping for official announcements clarifying the console’s specifications, capabilities, and compatibility, ending the sea of rumors and speculation. Stay tuned for future updates on the much-anticipated Switch 2!
