Rumours are suggesting that a new version of the Nintendo Switch could arrive at the end of this year.
Reports recently indicated that Nintendo had no intention of releasing the successor to the Nintendo Switch any time soon, with the current console only about halfway through its lifecycle.
However, there have been new rumours suggesting that a more powerful model is in the works, and could be released later this year.
Like PlayStation did with the PS4 by releasing the PS4 Pro, this console would essentially offer Switch players the chance to enjoy better graphics and processing when compared to the standard model.
The original Switch could be used as a handheld, as well as on your TV through the docking station. Nintendo then released the Switch Lite, which offers a smaller screen and does not have the docking functionality - making it a handheld-only device. The Switch Lite also comes at a lower price tag.
The rumoured 'Switch Pro' would boast an upgraded Nvidia chip and a larger screen, with reports suggesting that it may be able to support 4K docked output using Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).
One note, according to the report on IGN, is that this new technology may not benefit older games, and instead only allow for better-looking new games.
The Nintendo Switch currently retails for around R7999 in South Africa, and a Pro version could cost anywhere around R2000 more according to the rumours.
