Nintendo plans to release an updated Switch next year

According to Taiwan's Economic Daily and Bloomberg News, Nintendo plans to launch an updated version of the popular gaming platform (Switch) next year, which the company will use to advance in the competition this year and continue working on Sony and Microsoft devices.

According to Taiwanese newspapers citing supply chain sources, the new model for the gaming platform is expected to be launched in early 2021. This could be the first major boost in the Switch's performance since its launch in 2021 in March 2017.

According to Bloomberg, Nintendo has researched the possibility of adding more processing power and high-resolution 4K graphics, while Economic Daily cited improved visual effects.

Nintendo released two new Switch models last year, but they both use energy-efficient versions of the original hardware. You can reduce battery life and extend battery life without significantly improving performance.

The adapter is based on Nvidia's Tegra X1 system, which first appeared on the market 5 years ago.

Since then, mobile processor technology has come a long way, so there should be plenty of room for high-speed transfers, but the device may need a special new design from Nvidia.

Although the Tegra X1 system has made it onto Google's (Pixel C) tablets, the company no longer makes general-purpose systems for third-party manufacturers, except for Nvidia (Shield) devices.

According to Bloomberg News, the new model will release a number of more powerful games, and Nintendo hasn't announced any bigger games over the holidays.

The company faces fierce competition for gamers' attention this fall, and PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are expected to arrive during the shopping season.

However, after Nintendo announced it a few years ago, games were in full swing, such as (Metroid Prime 4) and the sequel ("The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild"). Therefore, new and more powerful materials are used. The ad can make sense.

Switch sales will continue into 2020 when Animal Crossing: New Horizons has sold millions of devices.

By the end of July, Nintendo had sold over 61 million Switch consoles, so it's only steps away from the original Nintendo entertainment system.
