Given the extra work required to add DLSS support, it will likely only be available for upcoming games instead of those already published within the first four years of the Nintendo Switch’s lifetime. Likewise, only newer games would fullyu benefit from the improved CPU and memory.
Bloomberg’s sources, “people familiar with the matter,” asked not to be identified since Nintendo has not yet officially confirmed any plans for new hardware.
A price increase should be expected to accommodate for the beefier chip and screen alone, to say nothing of any new peripherals included with the console, like an updated dock or Joy-Con controllers. Core Nintendo Switch hardware bundles retail for $299.99 USD currently, and Bloomberg’s Matthew Kanterman believes the “Switch Pro” could realistically hit $399.99.
