According to reliable tech insider kopite kimi, the rumoured Nintendo Switch Pro consoles will feature Nvidia Lovelace architecture GPUs, which are reportedly coming sometime in 2022.

Earlier this week we got some sold reports stating that the rumoured Nintendo Switch console is indeed real and should be coming later this year. The report also revealed the first details about the console, including the rumoured Nvidia DLSS support and more.

Of course, Nintendo are yet to officially confirm these details but it's safe to say that these are some credible rumours, coming from Bloomberg. Today, we have some some fresh info regrading the Nvidia chip that will be used for Nintendo Switch Pro consoles.

According to leaker and tech industry insider kopite kimi, Switch Pro consoles will feature Nvidia Lovelace architecture GPUs. Kimi replied to a tweet about Nintendo Switch Pro with "ada" which refers to Ada Lovelace, an English mathematician often cited as the first computer programmer. It's already confirmed that Nvidia's upcoming GPU architecture will be named Lovelace.

Nvidia Lovelace would be a successor to Ampere, and it's rumoured to be manufactured on 5nm process, 18,432 CUDA cores and nearly 66 TFLOPs of FP32 performance. Again, these are just rumours and nothing has been officially announced by Nvidia regarding the next generation of graphics cards.

It's safe to say that the Nintendo Switch Pro Nvidia GPU could also feature some custom solutions similar to how PS5 and Xbox Series X|S have RDNA and RDN2 chips respectively but still have custom features.
