Nintendo introduced a brand new Switch mannequin on Tuesday, an improve that was broadly and completely reported however a shock nonetheless for some. That’s as a result of the most recent revision of Nintendo’s wildly profitable Switch received’t introduce a graphics increase to 4K decision, based on Nintendo’s technical specs.

Instead, the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model), Nintendo’s official identify for the revised console-handheld hybrid, will output a most 1080p picture when hooked as much as a TV — — the identical because the 4-year-old launch mannequin. That element runs opposite to early reporting on the gadget from Bloomberg, which stated the subsequent Nintendo Switch mannequin would assist “4K ultra-high definition graphics” when docked.

Bloomberg reported in March that Nintendo’s new Switch mannequin would obtain its 4K graphics increase due to new know-how from chipmaker Nvidia. Nintendo reportedly deliberate so as to add an upgraded Nvidia chip and assist for Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), the proprietary know-how that makes use of AI to speed up graphics rendering by way of picture reconstruction, sustaining excessive picture high quality whereas delivering improved body charges.

Instead, the brand new Nintendo Switch OLED mannequin will function much less dramatic upgrades: a barely bigger OLED display, a revised dock with a wired LAN port, improved built-in audio system, and a greater kickstand. Nintendo tells The Verge that the brand new system “does not have a new CPU, or more RAM, from previous Nintendo Switch models.”

Even the system’s unusual identify, “Nintendo Switch (OLED Model),” doesn’t indicate a serious improve for Nintendo Switch homeowners. The “New Nintendo Switch Pro XL” this isn’t.

That makes the additional price — the OLED mannequin will price $349.99, $50 greater than the usual Nintendo Switch — a questionable worth. The new system doesn’t seem to handle shortcomings with the prone-to-failure Joy-Con controllers or soup up the internals for higher body charges in video games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Chip provider Nvidia’s ongoing semiconductor scarcity — a squeeze on microprocessors is affecting many industries — could also be partially responsible for the disparity between what was reported concerning the new Switch and what the fact will probably be when the system is launched this October. Nvidia said in April that it expects demand for brand new chips to exceed provide for a lot of this 12 months. Nintendo, which has a behavior of releasing new gaming {hardware} nearly yearly and should not wish to anticipate Nvidia to catch up, can nonetheless spur renewed curiosity within the Switch with this fall’s modest improve.

Of course, we should see that 4K improve some day. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser instructed Polygon in December that the Switch is “at the midpoint of [its] life cycle,” implying that now we have about 4 extra years of Nintendo Switch revisions nonetheless to return. After all, Nintendo launched six fashions of its common Nintendo 3DS over the course of a decade, boosting display sizes, including buttons, and bolstering processing energy.

Plus, on an extended sufficient timeline, some Nintendo rumors ultimately do come true.
