I wonder just how "pro" it will be. New 3DS bump? Xbox One S bump? Xbox One X bump?

I never play switch on the go so I'd love one that really bumped up the power when docked.
nintendo can feel free prove me wrong but i really doubt that nintendo can achieve an xbox one x bump without eliminating portability.  for the same reason xbox series x is gigantic nintendo probably can't cram much more power in without literally going bigger.   manufacturing just isn't shrinking anymore. switch is already pretty ridiculously big for a system claiming to be portable.  to reach a threshold of "4.6 more powerful" switch's form factor would probably have to double in volume.

A dock with local hardware could do that. Either do something fancy where the game uses the combined power of both when docked, or have it just swap to an external gpu.

if that was the case they wouldn't even need to release a new switch.  just a new dock.  sold seperately of course.  it just wouldn't be nintendo if the hardware didn't have a massive mark-up compared to what you get from sony/ms.

Does the current switch have the ports to support that?

Also a few upgrades internally could help keep the rest of the switch from being a bottleneck.


Nintendo has had so much success with their blue ocean strategy. If people are willing to pay the price, why would they stop?  ;)
