Nintendo right now is the only console manufacturer that have access to the most advanced AI upscaling technology (DLSS).
All to often I see this absolutely false information propagated.
AMD has a technology called "Radeon Image Sharpening" that Microsoft and Sony can tap into.
There is also another technology Microsoft has at it's disposal known as "DirectML".
We also have the other image reconstruction features like checkerboard and temporal reconstruction that can absolutely be leveraged by developers.
The more you know.
Fun fact, the switch is also on arm. They hit the jackpot in terms of where general computing is going. Not sure if it’s pure coincidence or Nintendo really thought years a head.
They will reap all the benefits for their next console.
It's no secret that ARM is in a ton of devices, but if you want any serious amounts of CPU compute... Then you cannot look past x86.
x86 is where the best performance in the entire industry is and will continue to be.
Either way, the Switch isn't the first ARM powered Nintendo device and it will not be the last, ARM is good for mobile, so what you gain in battery life and portability you do loose in total performance.
Why you lie like that tho? You can’t be serious and sit there and say that those even come close to DLSS 2.0.
Not only that Microsoft Direct ML is worse and actually require more power to run whereas DLSS free up performance. There’s nothing in the works from amd that can do the same.
As for arm. The most most powerful super computers/server farm on the planet runs on arm. Most already the made the switch. It’s not just “mobile”. Arm processors are just way more efficient. Quite literally the future of computing.
And The switch is a console. That is actually a hint to where arm is going. It’s NOT about Nintendo in “mobile” or arm in “mobile”. It’s about arm closing the power gap FAST in commercial use/computing.
