Nintendo Switch 2 will “match” PS4 and Xbox One.

There have been rumors of 4 TFLOPS performance

It looks like the first reliable information about the next generation Nintendo Switch console has appeared on the Web. Like a number of other recent news , this data was obtained through Microsoft’s litigation with the FTC as part of the process relating to the purchase of Activision Blizzard.

In particular, a letter was published from Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotik to Nintendo President Shunturo Furukawa. There he says that the new console of the Japanese company will be technically close to the previous generation of Sony and Microsoft consoles.

Given the closer match between your Gen 8 platform and previous PS4 and Xbox One, it’s reasonable to assume that we can do something compelling for the NG (next-gen) Switch as well.

In this case, the possibility of releasing Call of Duty games on the Nintendo console was discussed. Of course, for this, the new console must be productive enough, which cannot be said about the Switch.

From the words of Kotik, it is impossible to understand what the new Nintendo console will be like. In this case, the phrase about the compliance of the new Switch with the PS4 and Xbox One consoles most likely means the level of performance.

At the same time, we recall that the performance of PS4 is 1.84 TFLOPS, PS4 Pro is 4.2 TFLOPS, Xbox One S is 1.2 TFLOPS, and Xbox One X is 6 TFLOPS. By comparison, Switch performance is only 0.4 TFLOPS. The spread is very large, but earlier on the network there were rumors about the performance of the new Switch at 4 TFLOPS, which just fits into the specified range.

It could be assumed that Kotik did not mean performance, but architectural closeness, but, firstly, all leaks and rumors say that Switch 2 will receive the Nvidia platform, and secondly, it is unlikely that the set-top box will be released no earlier than 2024, Nintendo will use the CPU and GPU architectures that appeared in Sony and Microsoft consoles in 2013, and debuted on the PC market a couple of years earlier.
