Well, there's a Rumour about a Nintendo Switch Pro currently, and I wanted to know what you guys think about this rumour. I'm saying that Nintendo will release a new revision of a Nintendo Switch, like the 2019s revision, but I think it will not have 4K and stuff like that. I'm a Nintendo fan since years, and it's impossible that Nintendo would release a 4K-console. Leakers told us that the Super Mario 3D All-Stars Collection would have Widescreen for SM64, but that never happened and there was a big wave of Nintendo Direct Rumours which weren't even true in 2020. That's why I don't believe rumours any more.

This has been a rumor for as long as the Switch has existed, and my stance on it has been the same for quite a while: I don't give a shit. I don't buy consoles anymore. I think the console market is dumb, and I've fully switched over to PC + emulation, so 4K Switch games aren't anything new as far as I'm concerned.

I'm still a console gamer, but I'm also emulating games on my pc because that's cool, and you can improve old games for example with cheats. I love consoles, because I played my games on consoles since my childhood. That's also why I know a lot of stuff about Nintendo, and they wouldn't release 4K-consoles in this decade. Nintendo was never a company with modern high-tech-stuff.

4k isn't modern or high tech. It's old news at this point. Nintendo has liked being fashionably late to the party when it comes to tech ever since the DS, and in this case, they're late enough. I wouldn't be surprised if they did it now. Plus, saying they won't do it in this decade when the decade has just started is a really big stretch. They were only six-ish years late to the HD party. We already have 8k, and I bet by the end of the decade 8k monitors will be quite common. You really think Nintendo will still be going on about 1080p in 2030?

To be entirely honest I will take better graphics over 4k any day. 9/10 people don't have a display that can do more than 1080p anyways. I can see why they wouldn't go for it for a few years.

And for TVs especially 8k is totally useless. You cannot see a difference to 4k unless you sit like 20cm away from it.

I definitely think 1080p is good enough and I don't really need 4k or anything, but Nintendo isn't trying to appeal to me specifically, they're trying to appeal to a lot more people than that. I've seen several complaints about how far behind the Switch is compared to the PS5 and Series X, and I could see Nintendo trying to close the gap a bit some time soon. Most people probably know what 1080p 4k, 8k, or FPS means, but not nearly as many people know what anti-aliasing, ray tracing or texture resolution are all about, meaning increases in supported resolutions and framerates are the most effective way for Nintendo to show progress. Well, that was my reasoning, anyway.

I think this "Switch Pro" won't be a 4k model because Nintendo's current chef said once that they would like to upgrade their hardware like iPhones do, with small changes. This is why I also think the next revision will be stronger than the current one, but it wouldn't have 4K.

Judging from all the stuff found interally I'm going all in on this being a o3DS to N3DS type ugrade
Basically faster loading times and more stable framerates
4K will most likely come from an upgraded dock as IIRC there are system services for it

Personally, I think it is really neat, specially for people that play heavy games, like Rogue Company, Apex Legends (games that I play), Fortnite, etc. with better than 30 fps. But, in general, I think that Nintendo consoles need to be less expensive.

I hope they fix a lot of stuff, if a "Switch Pro" is really coming. Like the Joy-Con Disconnect Problem of the left Joy-Con. (I think the left Joy-Con had many problems back then.)

I think the left joycon thing was fixed in a matter of days. It was a software issue, not a hardware issue.

Like Poudink, I would rather invest in better stuff for my desktop PC so that I can play everything on there. But the problem is that I'm more of a handheld person. But then I would have to buy a Switch Lite. I'm not that much of a fan of laptops. So idk what I should do.

PC parts are probably the worst thing to buy currently (and probably for the next year and even longer). You can literally sell a used 3 gen old GPU for almost retail price at the moment.

And I guess if you want a handheld the switch is the only option. Especially those PC switch clones with x64 CPUs are well... questionable.

Honestly it would be super cool if a switch pro would be open to running a desktop OS. Like the hardware is totally enough to give you a pleasant web browsing, doc editing and even stuff like dolphin. But oh well I guess that option will never happen without mods.

On the regular Tegra X1 using Linux was already okayish if you set it up correctly. With doubled CPU this could replace a laptop for many people.

Well, guys. Here's the "Pro". And I guess I was right, no 4K.

The frame rate and the new functionalities look damn awesome!

idk what you mean by framerate. the internal hardware is the same. the framerates will be the same as on the regular switch.

Yeah, I guess he doesn't have any idea what he was talking about. Anyway, how's your opinion to the new Switch? I'll definitely buy it, because my main console is broken. I said to my mom when a new model will come out then I'll buy the new model instead of paying the repair. I like the new back, because it has now a better holder. It's much better then the older one, because the older one is easier to break. I like the new bigger screen too, but I did hope it would have a 1080p resolution. That's pitty, because it still has a 720p resolution. I don't like that it doesn't have USB 3.0 support, but the new LAN cable is neat.

My opinion? Looks like a worse model than the regular one. OLED is nice at first until you realize you're getting those nicer colors at the cost of a screen that quickly degrades itself and is very prone to burn-ins.

"Looks like a worse model than the regular one."

I like the white scheme of the new one, but there's also a grey variant, and I'd like to buy this one instead of the white, it's because of my colour taste. The white one looks good, but the grey one is better in my opinion. The original Switch is in a grey colour with red and blue Joy-Cons, and I like that.

Okay, I didn't know that this would happen. Well, I guess you can learn something new every day. But I use my Switch more in Docked Mode instead of the Tabletop Mode, which will be fine, I guess.
