That’s according to Reuters, which is reporting that the Japanese console giant will implement a custom Nvidia chip to power the new console.
According to a source with knowledge of Nvidia’s plans, “Nintendo’s current Switch handheld console already includes Nvidia’s Tegra X1 chip.”
It continues: “A new version of the Nintendo Switch console expected this year is likely to include a Nvidia custom design”.
Nintendo declined Reuters request for comment.
It was previously speculated that Nintendo would use an off-the-shelf chip for its next console, however, if Retuers report is accurate, that appears to not be the case.
Nintendo could hold a Partner Showcase later this month, it’s been claimed.
VGC reported last summer that development kits for ‘Switch 2’ were in the hands of key partner studios, with a launch expected in late 2024.
