New rumors shed light on the resolution of Nintendo Switch 2: the dream of 4K could still be further away than fans hoped

Since this morning we were talking about rumor for Call of Duty, a hot topic for gaming speculation is always that of Nintendo Switch 2: whatever its final name, the console does not seem to have the much desired 4K come resolution. Other details surrounding the platform see an Nvidia GPU and support for DLSS 3.5. The latter should, in theory, translate into an upscaling capable of reaching the astronomical resolutions of the case, but perhaps the reality is not as rosy as we imagined. This was “revealed” by the Digital Foundry podcast, which English speakers among you can recover in full below. Between a Steam Deck and a ROG Ally, towards the end of the discussion the topic of the Big N is also touched upon.

The missing 4K of Nintendo Switch 2: are the rumors about the resolution true?

The founder of Digital Foundry, Richard Leadbetteralluded toabsence of DLA (Deep Learning Accelerator), at least according to its “sources”. DLSS will not be missing, but the T239 (i.e. the Nvidia GPU created ad-hoc for Switch 2) will not include any DLA. In other words, this will “significantly limit the use of DLSS,” upscaling the console to “1080p or 1440p if you’re lucky, depending on the game.” The “enhanced” version of Breath of the Wild shown behind closed doors, however, has always been described “in 4K and at 60 frames per second”, so it is possible that, as often happens with the Kyoto Colossus, they are circulating multiple mutually contradictory voices. The platform is “expected”, if the rumors are reliable, in the second half of next year. We’ll have to wait to find out more.
