Leaker claims Nintendo’s next console will feature DLSS 3.5 and ray reconstruction
A leaker has claimed that Nintendo’s Switch successor will feature ray reconstruction and DLSS 3.5 and may be released in two different variants.
Nate the Hate, a YouTuber with a solid track record of accurate leaks, claims that Nvidia's DLSS 3.5 upscaling technology and ray reconstruction will be included in Nintendo's next console. This allows for ray-tracing on the console as well as much higher frame rates than would otherwise be possible on the hardware, with 4K resolution supported in docked mode.
It was reported last month that Nintendo demonstrated the new system behind closed doors at Gamescom in August, showing off a version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with a high frame rate and improved resolution. Epic's The Matrix Awakens tech demo was also reportedly shown, complete with advanced ray tracing and designed to demonstrate the power of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Nate the Hate also believes that Nintendo will release two versions of its next console. The two versions are expected to be similar to the PS5's digital and physical models, though it could also be a cheaper LCD and pricier OLED model like the current Switch. It's also believed that the system will almost certainly be fully backward compatible with the Switch.
