Nintendo probably still have plans to release a more powerful version of Switch, despite yesterday's announcement of the Switch OLED model. Switch Pro will reportedly rock 4K resolution and Nvidia DLSS tech.
Yesterday, Nintendo officially unveiled the Switch OLED model, a new console that comes with a couple of changes but keeps the same GPU and CPU that is found in the original Switch console. The biggest difference is the seven-inch OLED screen hence the name OLED model, which disappointed many fans who were expecting a much bigger upgrade.
If you are one of those who hoped that the new Switch would rock a 4K resolution and Nvidia DLSS, like many many rumours and leaks suggested, we feel you but it seems that not everything is doom and gloom when it comes to the existence of Switch Pro.
According to Jeff Grubb, who has been wrong on the matter before it's worth mentioning, the Switch Pro could still happen in 2022. "I still have only ever personally heard 2022 for a Switch Pro. And if that still happens, I'll continue to speculate that will have 4K output with a significantly more efficient chip with DLSS," Grubb tweeted.
Of course, releasing the OLED model this year certainly does not mean that Nintendo can't release a more powerful version of the next console in the next year or two, so it will definitely be interesting to watch this space in the near future.
It does suck that we didn't get the Switch console that we wanted but even if it releases during the next year, that's still better than nothing.
