We’re all eager to learn more about the new Nintendo Switch. Some call it the Nintendo Switch Pro, while others refer to it as the Nintendo Switch 2. The reality is that the console is in production, and Nintendo is looking to unveil it soon.

The big question is knowing how powerful it will be, as the common complaint among gamers is that the current Nintendo Switch is lacking in graphical performance, leading to many games becoming a meme as soon as they are released on the Japanese hybrid console.

Well, according to rumors circulating on the Internet and published on wccftech, the performance of the Nintendo Switch 2 could be far from that of the Xbox Series S, the least powerful console of the new generation.

A fairly powerful handheld, will it be enough?

In a recent YouTube video, RedGamingTech provided additional information about the console’s specifications, revealing that the console’s chip will be a hybrid between the Ampere and Lovelace architectures with some unknown modifications.

When docked, the console’s performance sits roughly within a 15% range of the Xbox Series S, but only with the assistance of NVIDIA DLSS and not at native resolutions.

In handheld mode, the console’s performance is comparable to that of the ASUS ROG Ally handheld.

Speaking of the storage for the Nintendo Switch 2, RedGamingTech mentions how it could have 256 to 512 eMMC, but it’s unclear whether this is still under consideration or if the console will be released with two different configurations.

Lastly, as we’ve heard before, the upcoming Nintendo console will be compatible with hardware-based Raytracing, but its impact on performance will require optimizations and NVIDIA DLSS to ensure games run smoothly.

Most of the Nintendo Switch 2 specifications detailed in RedGamingTech’s video align with other reports shared so far, so it’s highly possible that they have accurately listed several specifications.

The Nintendo Switch 2 has not been officially unveiled yet, so everything should be taken with a grain of caution, no matter how plausible it may seem at this time.
