The Nintendo Switch is still very popular at the moment and the console and Switch games continue to fly over the counter like hot cakes. That will become clear again after the release of Splatoon 3.
Still, the Switch is now starting to show wrinkles with games that are more complex, especially now that Sony and Microsoft have of course launched their next-gen consoles. There is almost no comparison between a PlayStation 5 and a Nintendo Switch, especially if you connect them both to a large television.
More powerful chip for the Nintendo Switch 2
For example, the Switch does not support 4K, but there have been rumors for a long time that a Nintendo Switch 2 or Switch Pro is in the works. The new model would use a more powerful chip, which is being developed by Nvidia. Last year claimed
that it would be the Tegra239 chip from the video card giant.

So why do we always guess?

That chip has never officially surfaced in Nvidia documents, until now. An employee of the company says on Linux.org that ‘support for the Tegra239 SoC’ has been added. This seems to confirm that a Nintendo Switch 2 is really in the works.
