On the one hand many were already sure that Nintendo Wii Will not unveil any new hardware this year - and on the other hand it now reveals a slight upgrade that does not meet fan expectations for improved processing power
The Switch Console of Nintendo Wii It's a huge success story with sales of over 85 million units so far, and great potential for continuity to sales of 100 million and beyond - and all this is happening even though this special platform goes against all the common trends of other competitors in the field, it seems.
While Sony and Microsoft have aligned with using more similar x86 hardware than ever before from home AMD Offering increased processing power designed to challenge high display speeds at high resolutions in the PC world, Nintendo is thriving and gaining the support of a large portion of game makers despite relying on hardware ARM Ancient in terms of the contemporary market, which sometimes makes it difficult for players to get even a minimum steady rate of 30 frames per second.
As a result, rumors that have been circulating on the web for more than a year have led many users to believe that Nintendo will launch a significantly enhanced Pro version of the Switch, with support for resolutions 4k Modernity and a host of other technological sweets - but in retrospect it seems that the old Japanese company will continue to go in its unique direction in the near future, with the exposure of the Switch OLED Model.

It's pretty clear that Nintendo is in no hurry to create a more powerful version of the Switch so as not to deter developers who will now have to adapt and test their creations in two different hardware arrays, and not lead to millions of current Switch console owners finding themselves removed from new titles. - But it's hard not to wonder at this point how much more benefit can be derived from a material chip it has launched NVIDIA Over 6 years ago.
No one is sure at this point whether a more powerful Switch Pro console actually exists somewhere in the dark, or exists only in the fevered minds of various leaks - but if a screen OLED And a more comfortable class sounds to you like a sufficient reason to upgrade or join the celebration for the first time, we are told that the Switch OLED Model is scheduled to hit shelves starting October 8, 2021, with a recommended price tag of $ 350 (excluding tax) that is an additional $ 50 compared to the current Switch 1.1 price.
