The Nintendo Switch OLED prototype was launched last Friday, but device makers have shed tears and discovered something interesting. The new hardware base appears to be capable of 4K output at 60 frames per second.
This isn't a solid change the new dock could produce at 4K/60fps, but it did make the Nintendo Prime curious enough. To tear down the unit and look inward (below). They concluded that the dock's video output was "HDMI 2.0 compatible". He noted that this information is consistent with information obtained from a firmware update earlier this year. So for all purposes, the OLED 4K/60fps switch dock is ready.
In terms of manual functionality, it uses a Tegra X1 Soc, which, as Nvidia notes, is 4K capable at 60 frames per second. The Original and Switch Lite use the same SoC but lack the processing power required for 4K gaming. As we know, the new adapter doesn't have much of an upgrade except for the OLED display, so it's just as capable as previous models.
So if the adapter can't connect HDMI 2.0 output. 4k process output? This is a good question without any solid answer. One theory is that Nintendo is preparing the ground for the Switch Pro. For two years in a row, analysts said a 4K Switch Pro was on its way.
Hey guys. Nothing was done properly on the internet, so I decided to dig it up myself. The DP2HDMI chip in the OLED switch socket is RTD2172N KBDQH1 which appears to be in line with what SciresM announced from Switch OS in January pic.twitter.com/6i2Z8zei0W- kawlums (KawlunDram) October 11, 2021
Of course, this never happened. Earlier this year, Toto doubled down and said the 4K-capable Switch Pro will launch before the end of Nintendo's fiscal year. The Nintendo FY2021 expires on March 31, 2022, so we still have time for that prediction to come true. Bloomberg also reported last month that 11 game developers, including one from Zynga, announced that Nintendo had provided tools to begin production of 4K Switch content. However, a 4K "first time" console is not expected until late 2022.
We would also like to stress that, as we announced in July, we have no new models other than the Nintendo Switch - OLED Model, Which launches on October 8, 2021. (2/2)- ・株式会社 （広 ・） IR） (NintendoCoLtd) September 30, 2021
Don't start in jail, Nintendo officially responded to Bloomberg's report and stated emphatically That the developers of Gave 4K Tools. The company also denied allegations in July that it was not planning a 4K Switch console. After Nintendo denied the story, a Zynga spokesperson told Bloomberg that information from an unknown source was false.
One thing is for sure: someone is lying. This is the position of Nintendo and the official representative of Zynga that no one is working on 4K Switch content. If this is true, then we must believe that at least 11 people from 11 different developers got together and said they are using 4K Switch tools. I don't know who to believe, but if I had to guess, I'd say images of the Nintendo Switch 4K hardware might be leaked soon.
