The successor to the popular Nintendo Switch console could come with NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 support, judging by a recent vacancy.
According to this new ad, NVIDIA is looking for a Senior Embedded Software Engineer for the Tegra Solutions Engineering team to work on “next generation graphics and AI technologies for game consoles and AI edge devices“This new engineer will be working on”solutions to use artificial intelligence in graphics technologies such as NVIDIA’s DLSS 2.0 “
While the vacancy in itself is not an indication that a new Nintendo Switch will provide DLSS 2.0 support, it would make sense for the console to support it, or for other image reconstruction technology, as it would allow the console to target higher resolutions than the GPU could while keeping costs down, which would be consistent with Nintendo’s current approach.
Earlier this year, Digital Foundry also ran some tests to see how DLSS AI upscaling would benefit current Nintendo Switch games, and the results were great, so DLSS 2.0 support for the next Nintendo Switch console wouldn’t be so are far-fetched.
With the Nintendo Switch still strong in the market worldwide, it’s probably too early to talk about its successor. The possibilities are fascinating and it will be very interesting to see what NVIDIA and Nintendo will come up with to keep up with the next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
