The Nintendo Switch Pro has yet to be officially announced, but a new rumor that started circulating online revealed some new details on the possible specs, docked and handheld performance, and more.
According to this new rumor coming from Taiwan, as reported on the ResetERA forums, the new Nintendo console’s GPU will be clocked at almost 1 GHz in docked mode, and at 768 MHz in handheld mode. As such, the console is said to be capable of pushing up to 120 FPS at 720p in handheld mode, but it seems like Nintendo will fix performance at 60 FPS, 720p resolution. On the other hand, docked performance will be optimized for 1440p resolution.
The new rumor also touches upon the NVIDIA DLSS technology implementation in the new Nintendo Switch Pro. According to the leaker, the technology is indeed implemented in the console, only that it may only be available in docked mode or could even be locked out at launch due to some unspecified issues.

There is information that the GPU clock that will go into the Switch Pro is almost 1Ghz. Existing switch clock corrects. 768 MHz.
It is said that it can realize up to 720p 120 frames in Nintendo Switch Pro portable mode.
