The persistent shortage of chips, affecting everything from consumer electronics to cars and home appliances, continues to limit production of the Nintendo Switch console. However, the popular Nintendo Switch game console managed to overtake the legendary Nintendo Wii game console at the end of February this year. At that time, Nintendo managed to sell about 101.63 million units of the Wii game console. Less than five years later, the Switch gaming console has overtaken its “big” sibling, with a total of 103.54 million units sold.
As it turns out, a worthy successor to the popular Nintendo Switch gaming console is already in the works. This was recently confirmed by Nintendo. It is, of course, the Nintendo Switch 2 handheld gaming console. If online rumors are to be believed, the novelty will most likely be based on the redesigned Nvidia Tegra platform, codenamed T234. If online rumors are to be believed, the novelty will be equipped with a 12-core Cortex-A78AE processor and up to 2048 CUDA processors for converting graphics content to four teraflops. Support for DLSS 2.2 and up to 16GB LPDDR5 memory should also be provided here.
The Nintendo Switch 2 will have to wait a little longer. It seems that the mass production of the novelty will not start until the end of next year. This means that the new game console will likely see the light of day only in early 2024. This means that the Nintendo Switch 2 game console will be available seven years after the official launch of the first generation of the Nintendo Switch game console.
