Most Switch 2 games expected to use Nvidia DLSS

The Nintendo Switch 2 is rumored to support Nvidia DLSS, and it looks like most games will use the upscaler if the latest rumors are to be believed.



As Moore’s Law is Dead stated in a recent video, most Switch 2 games will use DLSS, although it won’t be mandatory, according to Nvidia sources. Nvidia’s upscaler will be used to overcome some of the system’s technical limitations, since the chip powering the console, as highlighted by reliable insiders, will not be able to provide the same level of performance as the weakest current-generation system, the Xbox Series S.

While it’s not surprising that the Nintendo Switch 2 will be somewhat outdated whether it comes out this year or next, Nvidia has apparently offered Nintendo several SoC options for the system, including one based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, the same one found in graphics cards RTX 4000 series. However, Nintendo opted for a cost-optimized version of Orin running on the Ampere architecture, which makes sense, especially if Nintendo wasn’t aiming for the highest possible performance. However, some Lovelace features have been added to the chip, such as efficiency optimizations, so it will be interesting to see how the console performs compared to similar portable systems.



Even though the Nintendo Switch 2 is apparently ready for release, very little is known about it right now. According to rumors, the release has been postponed to March 2025.
