While there were rumours that the new version would boast a more powerful processor to handle 4K output when docked, these have proven to be inaccurate – in regards to this model, at least.
Nintendo has confirmed to The Verge that:
Nintendo Switch (OLED model) does not have a new CPU, or more RAM, from previous Nintendo Switch models.
What the OLED Model does offer is a bigger, better screen, enhanced audio and a redesigned dock which now includes a LAN port.
The Switch OLED Model launches alongside Metroid Dread on October 8th, and will retail for $349.99 in North America and around £310 in the United Kingdom.
Nvidia – the company which produces the Tegra X1 Mariko "system on a chip" that powers both the Switch and Switch Lite – is reported to be bringing production of the SoC that powers all three Switch models to an end this year.
