It’s only the 7th day of the year and also we have actually currently got some wild Nintendo rumours flowing online, so order some salt as well as continue reading.
Widely known dataminer and console cyberpunk SciresM has apparently uncovered new information about the rumoured Switch ‘Pro’ design by sorting via firmware code – although they caution these information may not be totally accurate as well as there is a reasonable little conjecture, too.
With this in mind, the revised system is obviously codenamed “Aula” as well as uses a Mariko SoC. Along with this, it’s believed it will support both anchored and handheld play, 4K support somehow or kind as well as can potentially include an OLED display. The Realtek chip may also remain in the dock, instead of the system.
Here is SciresM’s complete failure, through ResetEra:
Nintendo actually is dealing with a new model with upgraded display stuff as well as has been for ~ 1.5-2 years. I personally think it’s 4K provided the signs I’m seeing in the firmware, yet that’s not validated yet and could be wrong.
The new hardware is codenamed Aula, it’s using a Mariko SoC. There’s a lot of references to it in code (atmosphere sustains the brand-new screen already in theory).
The tablet computer itself most definitely has an upgraded screen, I do not recognize if it’s 4K.
Aula has firmware support some Realtek chip that markets itself as a “4K UHD multimedia SoC”, too, therefore my belief it’s 4K. That chip could be inside a brand-new dock and also not inside the tablet computer, however, there’s no way to tell from the firmware code yet.
Aula clearly supports portable mode. It is not docked only; that’s calcio, which seems like it’s for internal only/never releasing since Calcio has no gamecard port and also no battery.
You can examine boot sysmodule screen code if you wonder. The new display does not support power monitoring pwm, it has its very own supplier certain bs I needed to reverse designer and apply a month or 2 back.
Mariko has * significantly * much better cooling as well as battery life. It’s an authentic die reduce over the initial generation.
My best hunch (pure speculation, no firmware indicator this holds true) is that if they require additional efficiency, they’ll push it to greater clock prices across the board.
However yep, I speculate games will certainly be like “DSi enhanced” video games were, or like exactly how some games benefited from PS4 Pro regardless of dealing with PS4.
Checked my previous conversations with hexkyz, the updated tablet display is an OLED display. Possibly not higher resolution on tablet itself, so I think the 4k realtek chip is more probable to be brand-new dock than I assumed it was.
Vanilla most likely won’t.
We remain in the world of speculation. Aula has brand-new GPIO that redbox does not associated with sustain for this, so I would tentatively think that redbox units won’t support the new thing.
Switch over ‘Pro’ rumours have actually been circulating for a couple of years now, and a number of sector analysts are still confident it will appear eventually this year. You can catch up on all the previous developments in our comprehensive overview.
What are your very own thoughts about all of this? Do you believe it’s the genuine deal or is it as phony as that phony Nintendo Direct leak? Tell us down in the comments listed below.
