Nintendo Switch 2 leaked specs tease a huge step up in power

The Nintendo Switch still holds up fantastically as a console, yet we’re certainly not against seeing some of its specs improved in a potential Nintendo Switch 2.

While some games run very well on the console, the graphics of others leave something to be desired but Nintendo’s flagship console could soon be getting a major overhaul.

It’s been rumoured for quite some time that a Nintendo Switch successor, colloquially referred to as the Nintendo Switch 2, is set to launch in either 2024 or 2025, with the latter being more likely.

It stands to reason then that this console will be announced at a major Nintendo Direct sometime this year.

As we near this likely reveal, rumours surrounding the console's capabilities are ramping up with the latest teased specs suggesting a big step up in power.

Princess Peach Showtime launches on the Nintendo Switch on 22 March. Take a look at the game in action below.

As reported by TweakTown, YouTuber and leaker Moore’s Law is Dead claimed in a recent video that the Nintendo Switch 2 will use NVIDIA’S AI-powered DLSS rendering, which should offer boosted image quality.

If you’re not familiar, DLSS is a type of upscaling technology.

Moore’s Law is Dead then added that Nintendo has reportedly passed on utilising NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace 'architecture’ in favour of the Ampere chip, which is more cost effective.

The YouTuber explained that Nintendo could be using a custom chip, utilising some of the Lovelace’s efficiency.

TweakTown added that Nintendo is widely believed to be collaborating on a custom NVIDIA T230 chip, featuring an 8-core Arm A78C CPU with an integrated GeForce GPU based on the GeForce RTX 30 Series Ampere architecture.

That’s a lot of technical jargon but the must-know conclusion to take away is that this is far better than what’s on offer in the current iteration of the Nintendo Switch.

It’s also rumoured that the Nintendo Switch 2 could be able to support ray-tracing, also thanks to the use of NVIDIA technology.

It’ll be exciting to finally see the rumoured console in action. That’s for sure.
