Well, it's a prediction for 125m units.

Still, why wouldn't Switch be around for a long time? Are you falling into the same trap as many others and believe that processing power is a cause for concern?

It's a combination of power, age and cost effectiveness. Devices still sporting a Tegra X1 chip in 2024? That's not going to happen, the chip won't even be manufactured anymore, it'll have been replaced several times over.

A Switch successor or a more powerful switch will be on the market by the end of 2021.

Wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo switches (no pun intended) to the Tegra X2 in the next 18 months sometime. Unless they have some locked in deal for the X1 at 20nm, there's no point in staying with it, it might actually cost them more money to keep using that outdated 20nm line that no one else is using. 

Tegra X2 would immediately improve battery life, whether Nintendo would allow developers to tap into it's broader power though is a question mark.
