As you know, we have not yet received any new Nintendo Switch Pro console or something similar with a different name. Perhaps because the Japanese giant is preparing a full-fledged new generation.
An insider who specializes in Nintendo and the gaming industry and who has previously often shared subsequently confirmed information, described how he researched the issue and what he was able to find out.
Since the Bloomberg article about the Switch Pro came out, I’ve reached out to numerous contacts to try and make sense of the information available. I will no longer call the new console Switch Pro. Based on the conversations I have had, it is clear that this is the next generation of Nintendo Switch, but it is not clear to me how it will be positioned. I don’t know if the box will be positioned as Switch 2, but in what follows, I will simply refer to it as Switch 4K. Because it has the ability to output 4K images, and this will be achieved using DLSS. These facts are compelling, there is strong evidence to support this information, and there is no reason to expect this, this is about to change.
So, in fact, in general, nothing has changed. New data still suggests that Nintendo is working on a new console, it still relies on the Nvidia platform, is capable of handling 4K resolution and supports DLSS. It is unlikely that we are not talking about the same device that all the other rumors have been repeating all year, the only question is the name and positioning.
Recall, according to previous data, the new Nintendo console, whatever it is called, will be based on Nvidia SoC with GPU generation Lovelace. And most of the rumors were about the announcement in 2022, which is quite possible. Moreover, this does not even contradict the recent statement of Nintendo itself, which said that it would not release any new console in the near future, since it released Switch OLED.
No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games
The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.
And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.
However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.
Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.

Opera Software has announced the launch of an innovation for the Opera GX browser. As a reminder, Opera GX is being promoted as a browser designed specifically for gamers. The innovation is intended to brighten up the moments when Wi-Fi suddenly disappears for game lovers.

Created with GameMaker Studio 2 engine, the game will automatically appear in the browser every time the connection fails. If someone wants to play Operius on a stable internet, they can simply type opera: // operius in the Opera GX address bar.
Operius was selected through a competition involving more than 900 games created in GameMaker Studio 2. As a result, Operius won a poll where more than 100,000 Opera GX and GameMaker users voted for eight games selected by experts.
Operius features retro graphics inspired by 1980s space arcade shooters and a soundtrack from Catonator. Multiplayer is available to players without the Internet: in order to do this, you need to enter the mode for two players and then share the keyboard with a friend.
