Nintendo Switch 2 Everything We Know

A new report claims that the Nintendo Switch 2 is expected later this year and will feature a custom-made Nvidia chip.

according to ReutersNvidia is building an entirely new business unit to focus on designing custom chips for hardware firms, and has developed a custom design for the next iteration of Nintendo’s handheld system.

“Nintendo’s current Switch handheld already includes Nvidia’s Tegra X1 chip. A new version of the Switch console expected this year is likely to include Nvidia’s custom design,” a source told Reuters.

Interestingly, the report adds credence to rumors that Nvidia has also recently courted Microsoft to secure a contract for the next-generation Xbox console.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Nintendo declined to comment to Reuters.

Last month, Apex Legends maker EA said it “can’t confirm” the Switch 2, but “new platforms are good for us,” following a report that the Switch 2 would have a larger eight-inch LCD screen.

Earlier this week, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said the company will reveal its plan for the coming fiscal year at its next earnings briefing, expected in May.
