Digital Foundry has analyzed the latest rumors surrounding the Nintendo Switch 2, focusing on the fact that the upcoming device could come with 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM – being a huge leap not only over its predecessor, but also a step up from one of the current consoles: the Xbox Series S.

Experts point out that even if your RAM does not reach full speed, it must deliver the necessary bandwidth to the processor to run a large part of multiplatform games – without compromising its quality, as we see in the Xbox Series S with 10GB of RAM.

For Digital Foundry members, the Nintendo Switch 2 equipped with 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM has the potential to deliver higher texture quality than the Microsoft console – although they doubt it will reach its current performance.

They use DOOM Eternal as an example, with the Xbox Series S having processing power that can handle ray tracing, but it doesn’t perform without taking a big hit in terms of texture quality – due to its RAM.

The Nintendo Switch 2 can achieve a “reasonable” resolution using NVIDIA DLSS – which also has a high memory cost, as textures need to be at a good enough resolution to achieve the best results. This should allow it to overcome the low quality of the current console in docked mode, both first-party and others.
