Previous reports have estimated that this console will be able to achieve 1080p gameplay, thanks to DLSS. Therefore, it should not be surprising that Nintendo expects most teams to utilize the technology.

Sources have also revealed that Nvidia offered Nintendo other options for the system’s SoC, including the Lovelace architecture, which powers the RTX 4000 series graphics cards.

Nintendo chose to stick with Ampere because of its affordability and cost-efficient chips. However, a few features from the Lovelace architecture have been added to the console.

However, for handheld hardware, DLSS could be a game-changer.

Nintendo has never been one to invest in the best hardware, but its partnership with Nvidia should allow it to push for better visuals and performance while keeping the hybrid form factor of the current generation.
