In June, the site of a French retailer spotted the Nintendo Switch Pro console. Then we learned about the price, which could be 35,400 rubles. The portable toy will have a 7-inch OLED display and support Nvidia’s DLSS technology. Now insiders have learned even more information on the last point. Tipster kopite7kimi told in Twitterthat the Switch Pro will have a processor codenamed “Dane”.
At first glance, this contradicts previous claims about the chipset codenamed “Black Night”, but for Marvel fans, things fell into place – Dane Whitman is the Black Knight. In 2021, he will even be filmed for the movie “The Eternals”, starring Kit Harington (Jon Snow from Game of Thrones). As he says GizmochinaNvidia likes to code its processors after Marvel heroes.
So, the Dane chipset is built on an 8nm process technology, which is much cooler than the original Switch (20nm) and the 2019 version (16nm). Such news means that, when paired with DLSS technology, the Switch Pro will be able not only to produce a pleasant FPS, but also to discharge more slowly. The announcement of the console should be expected next year. By the way, at the end of June, the head of Nintendo of America, Doug Bowser, said about good sales of the Switch for the fifth year in a row, but the company is thinking about technological progress.
