It was back in May 2016 after I completely revealed to the world that NVIDIA secured the chip supplying contract from Nintendo for his or her at-the-time ‘NX console’ which turned out to be the phenomenally profitable Nintendo Swap.

Yeah, nicely, what’s subsequent? The following-gen Nintendo Tremendous Swap — that is what I have been referring to it as — is within the headlines the place it can reportedly function a next-gen SoC with NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Studying Tremendous Sampling) know-how assist.

ResetEra insider NateDrake defined: “Will not actually discuss extra in regards to the tech specs than I’ve. It has DLSS & it has 4K performance. No motive to go deeper than that proper now. That is sufficient for example the machine is a significant improve. First occasion assist with span the brand new {hardware} and present Swap for not less than a few years“.

Now the large query is whether or not we’re taking a look at NVIDIA DLSS or DLSS 2.0, as a result of if the next-gen Nintendo Tremendous Swap has DLSS 2.Zero then the occasion is actually simply starting. DLSS 2.Zero is a big improve over DLSS and can be very welcomed on a handheld console.

The ResetEra insider would not have a agency launch date from his sources, however says he is assured Nintendo will announce the brand new console this 12 months. He mentioned that the corporate had initially deliberate for a 2021 launch however we will all see how that in all probability will not occur and it might be pushed into 2022.

The submit continued: “As an instance I am assured it will get introduced this 12 months. A delay to 2022 would have to be communicated within the subsequent few months, as dev kits and third-party companions start to plan software program for the machine. As of this very second (Feb 18, 2021), I consider the hope stays for a 2021 launch“.

Now, we must also check out Digital Foundry’s video that reveals how good DLSS know-how could possibly be on a next-gen Nintendo Tremendous Swap console. I am excited to see the place Nintendo takes the brand new Tremendous Swap console, and whether or not we’ve a big improve in visuals and efficiency as that is usually one thing Nintendo would not brag about.

However we stay in a buzz phrase advertising and marketing world, the place 4K 60/120FPS and 8K at the moment are a factor and each the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Sequence X/S consoles are stepping up not less than… Nintendo must play meet up with the brand new Tremendous Swap and a few new DLSS 2.0-powered handheld goodness.
