Recently, the Nintendo Switch console received a firmware update version 12.0.0. There was nothing remarkable among the changes, but the OatmealDome dataminer has unearthed several interesting finds confirming the presence of a new console model.
In particular, he pointed out that a line of code appeared in the firmware, which is responsible for updating the software built into the docking station. The current docking station cannot be updated – it is literally a plastic box with HDMI and USB ports.
In addition, the update has a certain name Aula – the dataminer believes that this is the codename for the new Switch model.
There was also a line that seemed to indicate a 4K picture. According to the latest rumors, Switch Pro will indeed receive support for 4K resolution and DLSS technology.
Previously, it was reported on the network that production of the Switch Pro will start in July, and the launch is scheduled for the end of this year or early next year, along with the sequel Breath of the Wild. The price will be up to $ 400. The new version of the console can use the latest NVIDIA Lovelace architecture chip .
