Nintendo Switch Version 16.0.0 Reveal
Just on the night of this Thursday, February 23, we shared some details about the version 16.0.0 of the Nintendo Switch software, in which a reference to RAM configurations of 8, 6 and up to 32 GB was detected, a surprise because the Switch It has a capacity of 4 GB.
It makes sense to think that Nintendo is paving the way for its next console and whether it is 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM. But in addition, other information suggests that the GPU would be 2.4 TFLOPS, more powerful than Sony’s PlayStation 4 (PS4).
“I would estimate between the power of PS4/PS4 Pro (2.4TF or so), 1200p – 1440p max resolution upscaled to 4K via DLSS 2 while docked, and 720p upscaled to 1080p while portable. Average battery life 2.5 to 5 hours,” content creator The F0X wrote on Twitter.
Regarding Nintendo Switch 2, I think you’re pretty close.
I’d guess between PS4 / PS4 Pro power (2.4TF or so), 1200p – 1440p max resolution upscaled to 4K via DLSS 2 while docked, and 720p upscaled to 1080p while portable.
Average 2.5 – 5hr battery life.

Finally, and taking into account an old leak, the report adds that it is presumed that the Switch 2 will have a 12-core chip with GeForce Ampere architecture, the same as the RTX 30, so its clock speed would be 781 MHz.
All these are rumors, it’s nothing official, but if the Internet is already starting to move things about the next Nintendo console, it’s because the big N must be working on it.
