Switch 2: 12GB ram, DLSS, can run UE5 Matrix demo

But its successor might end up being more future-proof than some might expect, with Universo Nintendo's Felipe Lima now reporting that the Switch 2 will incorporate 12GB of RAM. The claim is attributed to an anonymous source who attended Nintendo's alleged Switch 2 presentation at the 2023 Gamescom. For context, the Switch has 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, while the Xbox Series S boasts 10GB of significantly faster GDDR6 random-access memory. The Series X and PS5 both have 16GB of the same sixth-generation RAM.

A newly surfaced report claims that the Nintendo Switch 2 might have at least one circumstantial hardware...

 

 

 

 

 

Sounds like the switch 2 could easily slot between the series S and series X. With DLSS, it may even have an advantage. 

 

Also sounds like Nintendo will be able to market all the switch games as being DLSS upscaled on switch 2.

If this pans out, it could be an excellent device but I would still prefer the freedoms of the Steam Deck, modding, custom OS etc. 

 

However for someone who is just wanting a plug and play device, the Switch 2 could shake things up.

Depending on the game, some are bringing the mods to consoles. Skyrim already has it, Dying Light2 bring it now, and Starfield is supposed to be having it. 🙂  They're realizing that console gaming is a big chunk also.

Excited for a new Nintendo console irrespective of the hardware spec. If the rumours hold true, and it this point, it seems rather likely, then I am hopeful for some decent tech with the new system. DLSS would make a noticeable impact in a lot of games and if there is a custom SoC based on Ampere or Ada… that will be quite the jump from the current Maxwell (Tegra X1) chipset.

 

My one requirement: Switch games are supported (backwards compatible). I’d love the new console to be able to use DLSS to upscale my older titles but I believe it will require devs to go back and support such features in a updated build for the new console.

If it [Switch 2] doesn’t support my Switch games, I will be very hesitant to jump in early. My Switch library is fairly robust (see above) and I use the system almost exclusively in handheld. I can sacrifice the mobility if it’s necessary but I simply refuse to have any more consoles setup.
