Judging by the latest information leaked online by two well-known leakers, the new Switch will come out in 2022 and deliver 4K resolution via Nvidia’s DLSS 2.0 technology.

The latest leaks concerning the successor to the Switch console, be it Switch Pro or Switch 2, come from verified ResetEra ‘insiders’, which go by the names ‘Z0mb3Ie’ and ‘NatetheHate’. They both had accurate leaks before, and people seem to trust the person behind NatetheHate's nickname more. 

Taught from previous experiences, the grain of salt approach can be applied here as well. Either way, interesting information, and discussion emerged.

Insiders call for a long-standing collaboration between Nvidia and Nintendo and argue that the new Switch could be a revision, in a way like the Wii and Wii U.

In short, the new Switch could have support for 4K resolution via Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 technology, which should be implemented in the new Nintendo console. In what way, it is not known, but we all know how DLSS is a magical thing. It is assumed that DLSS 2.0 will only be possible in docked mode and that the dock station could have much more power than the one from the original Switch.

As regards the intended specifications and power, the following is speculated: 

  • "Minimum Power of the revision will be around or beyond the power of a PS4 at Native Resolution, with the ability to scale far beyond the Xbox One X due to DLSS, bridging into a gap between the Series S and PS5." 
  • "Maximum Power of the revision will be in the ballpark, but not matching, the Xbox Series S at Native Resolution, with DLSS bringing it not to matching, but into the ballpark of the PS5 in power."

Sounds a little over-ambitious, if you ask us.

If Nintendo decides to follow their earlier trends, the release of the new Switch could happen alongside the new Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, which has been postponed to 2022.
