It’s not surprising that Nvidia could be developing the processor for the Switch 2, but it does open the door for a couple of big performance upgrades including ray tracing and DLSS.

According to a February 9th report from Reuters, Nvidia is building a custom chip business unit which could be developing a next-gen chip for the Switch 2. All three existing Switch models are powered by Nvidia’s custom Tegra X1 mobile chip. So, it makes sense for Nintendo to continue working with Nvidia on their next console.
