It might even have DLSS and ray tracing support
Rumors about some sort of enhanced Switch have been rampant since the hybrid console first launched, but it seems like a new one may just be legit. The folks over at the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit have acquired an email from an Nvidia employee that offers some juicy details about what may be the next Nintendo console.
The main takeaway is that the next Nintendo console will use a more powerful Nvidia Tegra chip than the first that may even be capable of upscaling via DLSS 2.2 and ray-tracing based on its GPU architecture. Hopefully we’ll get to see a more powerful Switch sooner rather than later.
I mean the T239 is a Nintendo chip. As a quick summary of things up to this point.
The Nvidia leak back in March referenced the T239 and NVN2, NVN being the graphics API Nvidia built for the Switch. Additionally, kopite7kimi the Nvidia leaker, said that the Nintendo would be using a custom T234, the T239 for their chipset almost a year before the Nvidia leak happened.
Nvidia seems to have plans to also repurpose the T239 for a future Shield if they're adding Linux kernel support. Which to me indicates we're getting a lot closer to chip production.
