Consumer Nintendo Switch 2 rumored to have more RAM than the Xbox Series S
Nintendo Switch 2 leaks and rumors are starting to arrive on a regular basis, with the more optimistic type of person hoping this could mean an announcement is on the cards. While there are still some chances of Nintendo unveiling the Switch 2 either in a Nintendo Direct episode or at an event like the Tokyo Game Show (21-24 September), there is still nothing concrete from the big N itself. But that hasn’t stopped the leaks coming, and a new one from “Necro” Felipe will certainly have Switch fans feeling excited.
The journalist and tipster has been told that the consumer version of the Nintendo Switch 2 will sport 12 GB of RAM, which is a considerable amount for a hybrid console and a huge leap over its predecessor. To put this figure into context, the PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X both sport 16 GB RAM while the Xbox Series S gets by on 10 GB RAM. As for the OG Switch, this unit had to rely on just 4 GB of memory, so the amount of Switch 2 RAM would be triple that.
In addition, the same source discussed the recent leak about a Nintendo Switch 2 tech demo, where a report claimed the console would have DLSS tech onboard (possibly 3.5). Apparently, it will actually be Nvidia DLSS 3.1 heading to the Switch 2, which means Mario and Link should be able to take advantage of technology such as DLAA for smoother edges and ray tracing for lighting and reflections that help deliver enhanced gaming environments for the titles that utilize them.
Pelas minhas fontes agora: A versão do DLSS exibida a portas fechadas pela tech demo do “Nintendo Switch 2” era 3.1 e não 3.5 como reportado ou apontado pela Eurogamer— 'Necro' Felipe #UnivNintendo (@necrolipe) September 7, 2023
Ray-Tracing de fato é possível e a memória RAM que eu fui informado era de 12 GB para o consumidor
