Is anyone expecting DLSS support patches for already released games..?
This should be the goal for Nintendo. Using the dlss they could save power to port SX and ps5 games at least at 1080 when docked, the difference will be not brutal if not impossible with no dlss and new architecture.Exciting! DLSS also means a new architecture, probably either Ampere or Turing. That means full support for next generation games.
Did that happen for all old games when the PS4 pro and Xbox One X was released?Wouldn't it be in Nintendo's best interest to offer performance boosts to their still selling games?
It only makes sense and they need to give people reasons to buy their new console.
I'd be surprised if they just left all these major games as is when they're pimping a new, more powerful console.
Yes, thanks to the Series S, the bar for next gen support is pretty low. All the Switch Pro needs is having a fast storage device with atleast 1 GB/s, a decent 8 or 12 core ARM78 CPU, 8 Gb or more RAM and a modern GPU that uses Ampere or Turing with the raw performance of the base last gen consoles (thanks to DLSS which will offset the power differences nicely)This should be the goal for Nintendo.

That high price tag leaves me quite optimistic. Maybe we will actually get a powerful handheld with good third party support this time.I haven't bought a Nintendo system since the DS but if they make a quality product they might get me to buy one this time. I'm not willing to pay $299 for junk but I am willing to pay $349 or $399 for a high quality portable.

I suppose RT acceleration would also be pretty important, as next gen games could use it only, so if Nintendo is serious with third party support, it needs to have RT cores as well, which is likely due to the Ampere or Turing architecture and tensor cores already confirmed. Switch Pro could actually have an advantage there, because Nvidia's RT cores are stronger than Ray accelerators.
I keep telling everyone this is basically a Switch 2 yet people remain skeptical.
Nvidia has every reason to provide a powerful custom chip at a low cost to nintendo. They know the switch is already a success, and this new one will be their poster child, a portable advertisement for their tech.
Knowing Nintendo they'll use DLSS to conserve battery life and the games can't utilize it to make better graphics.I'll take this with a big grain of salt...
DLSS would be awesome, but considering it's Nintendo we're talking about, things are sounding a bit too good to be true.
I hope they surprise me though.
You think people getting Switch because of graphics?I'm getting one regardless, but at $399 I doubt it's going to do well against PS5/XSS.
I get it's going to have better performance in handheld mode as well, but at that price you should be able to get a PS5 DE which is going to have better graphics regardless of DLSS
Well if you go by numbers... an RTX 2060 has 240 Tensor cores. That gives it enough tensor compute power to upscale 1080p to 4K, in a game like Death Stranding, at around 80 fps on average. It can do upscaling to 1080p at very high FPS, it doesn't seem like the upscaling itself takes much power.Still doubt it will have DLSS but the question is, if it does, exactly how much silicon is dedicated to tensor cores? Because that’s what we are talking really. People seem to be under the illusion that DLSS is just something you slap on it...
Rumor has it that they are targeting 12m units for the holiday release. Will it be enough? Dunno, but at $399 a lot of people will stick to their OG Switch. I think scalpers won't be making a lot of money with the Super Nintendo Switch.Can't wait for it not to be available anywhere because of scalpers and a demand much higher than "anticipated".
Switch bucked that trend hard. Prior to the announcement people weren't even sure the next Nintendo handheld was going to be significantly stronger than Vita let alone PS3/360/Wii U.That twite looks like fanboy wet dream.
Its Nintendo we talking about. You will get an overpriced weak ass machine
