Nintendo is set to revolutionize the gaming world with the launch of its next console, unofficially named Nintendo Switch 2, later this year. This new device is expected to feature a custom Nvidia chip, marking a significant upgrade from its predecessor.

The gaming community is excited as rumors suggest the Switch 2 has already been showcased behind closed doors, with a release planned for 2024.

Collaborating closely with Nvidia, Nintendo aims to develop a bespoke processor for the Switch 2. This partnership is part of Nvidia’s broader strategy to create custom chips for various companies, including those with advanced AI capabilities.

The original Switch operates on Nvidia’s Tegra X1 chip, hinting at an even more powerful processor, especially since Nvidia’s acquisition of Arm, a key player in the chip manufacturing industry.

Details about the Switch 2 are gradually emerging, though Nintendo has yet to make an official announcement. Analysts predict the console will feature an 8-inch LCD screen, a notable shift from the current OLED model.

Leaks also suggest a launch in the last quarter of the year, with Nintendo planning to continue supporting the original Switch with new games into 2025.

As anticipation builds, the gaming world eagerly awaits the arrival of the Nintendo Switch 2, promising enhanced performance and a new gaming experience.
