It's likely very possible to have the dock give a bigger boost to the next system than the dock gives to the Switch. The dock of the Switch is very simple tech that is merely recognizing the Switch is hooked up to an AC adapter and HDMI, and thus unlocking its power that it can't use when running off a battery.
But we have to consider cost here and how much Nintendo wants to make. If Nintendo makes a dock for the Switch 2 that gives a higher boost in performance than the current situation, they'll almost surely pass the cost onto us. The Switch 2 is already not unlikely to cost $399.99, and this would all but guarantee it.
