One of the most popular consoles in Nintendo’s history, Switch, was released in 2017, and now half of 2021 has passed. There have been many news about Switch Pro consoles on the Internet.
Recently, the informer kopite7kimi has brought new intelligence on the Switch Pro host, saying that the processor code used by the Switch Pro host is Dane, which is manufactured using an 8nm process.
Some netizens who are concerned about the Switch Pro console will have doubts. Two days ago, they said that the codename of the processor was Black Knight. How did it change today? If you know something about Marvel, you can find that the real name of Black Knight is actually Dane Whitman. This is in line with Nvidia’s naming method for choosing Marvel superheroes on the Tegra processor code name.
Although 8nm is not the most advanced process technology at the moment, it is a huge improvement compared to the 20nm process of the original Tegra X1 of the Switch and the 16nm process of the long-life version of Tegra X1+. And the 8nm manufacturing process is shared with RTX 30-amp graphics card to ensure its reliability and productivity stability.
According to Samsung’s data, the 8nm transistor density is 61.18 MTr/mm2, which is more than twice that of TSMC’s 16nm process 28.88 MTr/mm2, and the performance improvement is quite obvious. Combined with Toddhowardreal’s statement, its performance will be between GTX 1060 and GTX 1070.
