It has been confirmed that the new Nintendo Switch OLED model is no more powerful than a normal Switch. Though it’s perhaps not as bad as it sounds.
While many fans were excited to see the new version of the Switch, once the dust had settled, some details became apparent. Namely the fact that this new OLED model is no more powerful than the normal Switch.
As reported by The Verge, they received confirmation from Nintendo that in terms of performance, nothing has really changed. The OLED Switch has the same CPU as the normal console, and it doesn’t have more RAM.
Additionally, as reported by The Gamer, there’ll be no change to the Joy-Cons either. So, if you were expecting enhanced motion controls with the new OLED Switch, you’ll be sadly disappointed.
According to the FAQ on the Nintendo website: “The Joy-Con controllers included with Nintendo Switch (OLED model) are the same as the controllers currently available.”
