For years, some fans have wondered if Nintendo had any intention of making a successor to its Switch console. The company has denied claims of a 4K-capable Switch Pro, but it looks like a successor is being considered. At the least, sources claim that there’s proof of this.

According to Wccftech, Nvidia recently posted a job ad looking for a “Game Console Developer Tools Engineer” on LinkedIn. The company is allegedly working on a new system that’s powered by its Ampere GPU architecture and would support DLSS. It’s suspected that this would be the so-called Nintendo Switch 2, which is more of a new generation than an upgrade to the Nintendo Switch.

Of course, there’s conjecture based on how the Switch is the only console using an Nvidia chip. The company is looking to hire someone with skills to “build tools that enable developers worldwide to harness the full power of NVIDIA GPUs”. Since there’s no direct reference to Nintendo or the Switch, Nvidia may be building an in-house console. For example, a new Nvidia Shield.

Mind you, the above is all speculation based on limited information, so take it with a grain of salt. Having said that, is Nintendo finally getting ready to make a new portable console? Share your thoughts in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for more news on this.
