On Oct 8, Nintendo unveiled a new OLED version of its Switch game console. In addition to a major screen update, the Switch also includes a network cable port and firmware upgrade for the new dock.
On top of that, a disassembly of the OLED Switch base revealed that the new base has 4K output.
Recently, some foreign netizens disassembled the new version of Switch base, and found that the new version of the base added a chip from Ruiyu production model RTD2172N KBDQH1.
While the OLED Switch still uses the Tegra X1 chip for graphics, the new HDMI cable and the Renesex chip have 4K output.
In addition to nintendo's firmware upgrade for the new base,As a result, nintendo is likely to open up 4K output or HDR to the Switch, just as it did with bluetooth headphone functionality via Switch 13.0 firmware.
However, there is no confirmation that 4K will be added to the Switch, and Atmospheric co-author SciresM believes the Reesex chip will be used primarily to improve the sound of the OLED Switch. But it might be possible to use the chip to interpolate or stretch images to 4K.
