Sidat.ID, – Rumors about the Nintendo Switch “Pro” have recently returned. The Switch variant with better and stronger specifications is reportedly going to apply DLSS technology to its hardware.
DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling is a new technology from NVIDIA that is able to upscaling a low-resolution game display to high resolution without sacrificing framerate.
The news came from an insider who owns the NateDrake account on the ResetERA forum who ensures that this DLSS technology is not only implemented on the dock, but components in the Switch itself. So that this technology can be used by developers to make their game performance even better even in handheld mode.
Indeed, this news is true, this certainly strengthens the previous rumors that the Nintendo Switch “Pro” will run at a resolution of 720p when the handheld and 4K when docked.
However, the news about the following DLSS technology is still only a rumor, the truth of which is not necessarily true, considering that Nintendo itself has not provided any information regarding its existence. So we just wait for the certainty of the information for some time to come.
We still don’t know if there will be a new console, but we put together all the Nintendo Switch Pro pricing rumors here.
Will there be a new Nintendo Switch 2 in 2021?
While Nintendo has refused to comment on the latest rumors surrounding a new Nintendo Switch in 2021, there is ample evidence to suggest that an upgrade is in the works.
Dataminers continues to find more clues in the recent Nintendo Switch update, but like all rumors, this information should be taken with a pinch of salt.
With new information coming in from Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and a number of analysts predicting a new console for 2021 in the GamesIndustryBiz roundup, there’s bound to be a lot of smoke circulating.
Perhaps the strongest argument not to worry about the price of the Nintendo Switch Pro in 2021, however, is the fact that Nintendo may not need to update its bestseller just yet.
The Switch and Switch Lite both topped the console charts in November 2020, beating the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and the numbers continue to prove impressive. Nintendo is booming here, and they probably won’t have to do anything to keep that fire going.
Will the price of Nintendo Switch 2 games go up?
Nintendo has reportedly asked its developers to make upcoming games 4K ready, adding to rumors that a new console is on its way and will offer UHD resolution. If this information proves to be correct, it’s worth noting that the console will not only offer 4K, but we’re unlikely to see a split in the catalog.
Like the New Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo has in the past limited the list of compatible titles to its new generation. Fortunately, it doesn’t look like this will be a problem here.
Not only will Nintendo face pressure from compatible markets with Microsoft and Sony, but the developers (if the rumors prove true) are already working to ensure their current games will run on new consoles.
Furthermore, there are more costs associated with games running at higher specs, and although titles compatible with earlier versions may not go up in price, we may see a bit of inflation in future releases. ***
