A hot potato: Nintendo finally unveiled the next long-rumored version of the Nintendo Switch on Monday, and many fans were disappointed. While it uses OLED technology and comes with more storage, the expected 4K support and the inclusion of DLSS are missing; even a Nintendo marketer thinks people shouldn’t upgrade if they don’t care about the new screen.
The new hybrid device, imaginatively called the Nintendo Switch OLED model, offers a few updates over the current version: the 6.2-inch LCD screen is now a 7-inch OLED; 32GB of storage has increased to 64GB; there is an adjustable bracket; improved audio; and a new base with a wired Ethernet connector.
Where the latest switch does not differ from its predecessor are the internals. We had seen reports of support for 4K resolutions, the addition of Nvidia’s DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), a new custom-designed SoC with improved CPU and more RAM, but all are lacking in the Switch OLED model.
No. Not for what. Stick with the current one if you’re not digging the screen.

Given the number of reports of an updated 4K Switch Pro, there is always a chance that Nintendo could launch the most powerful model next year when the global chip shortage has eased, although such a move would certainly anger those who buy a model. OLED switch when launched. on October 8 for $ 349.99.
I’ve only personally heard 2022 for a Switch Pro yet. And if that still happens, I’ll continue to speculate that it will have 4K output with a significantly more efficient chip with DLSS.
Does anyone think that this is the last Switch from the company that released 6 3DS models? https://t.co/TuJJGucDdc
