NVIDIA leaks mention NVN2, NVN is the Switch graphics API, suggesting revised Switch model on the horizon


Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa recently stated during the company’s financials that the Switch system is still in the middle of its lifespan, meaning that we are unlikely to get a successor to the Nintendo Switch anytime soon. However, it has been now been discovered that the new and prolific NVIDIA leak makes mention of the NVN2 (the original Switch graphics API is NVN) as discovered by data miner, NWPlayer123. This suggest that the NVN2 is a revised and more powerful graphics API for the Switch which should have been in the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) but with the ongoing chip shortages Nintendo decided to ship the system without its intended revised internals, instead relying on the 2017 internals, but with better quality of life features such as the larger and more vibrant OLED screen and better battery life, etc. Whether Nintendo announces a revised Switch model is anyones guess, but Nintendo does like to revise its product lineup to keep it fresh as we have seen thus far with the Switch Lite and OLED model.

even more evidence it’s a delayed Switch Pro and not a next gen platform, especially since the president said the Switch is in the middle of its lifehttps://t.co/CRjSQEDn0w
