According to news last week, Nintendo has sent the Switch prototype to some core developers, and some third-party developers broke the news that they have decided to give priority to this matter.
Some reporters also pointed out in the latest report that in the fiscal year ending in March 2022, Nintendo will release a new generation of Switch, which is equipped with an OLED display. Currently, Nintendo has raised its sales forecast for Switch in the fiscal year.
With the new hardware “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2” and other games, software sales are expected to reach 250 million copies this fiscal year, far exceeding the 205 million copies last year.
According to the previous statement, Nintendo plans to launch a Switch equipped with a larger Samsung OLED display this year. Samsung will start mass production of these 7-inch/720pOLED panels as early as June. The new Switch TV mode will support 4K, and the “Tegra X1 Mariko” chip used in the Switch long-life version and Switch Lite will be discontinued at the end of the year.
One possible reason for the chip change is to ensure 4K output in Dock mode and PC-level high-quality technology such as DLSS 2.0 deep learning supersampling. (ZOL Zhongguancun Online)
