A new Nintendo Switch model could be in development, which will be more expensive than the standard version of the hybrid console but support enhanced visuals.
A report from Bloomberg suggests that the new model of the Switch will utilize an updated Nvidia chip that supports Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling.
This should allow the Switch Pro to have a bigger screen, process calculations faster than before and support 4K resolutions when docked. However, it is likely that only future games will get a graphical upgrade, with older titles left as they are.
According to the analysts cited in the report, the Switch Pro could release in time for the holidays at the end of 2021. It will likely come with a significant price increase in the range of $50 to $100. That would mean the console could cost as much as $399.99.
Nintendo has never officially confirmed whether the company is working on an updated Switch model, although there have been constant rumors for more than a year.
