Many were skeptical about Nvidia and Nintendo's partnership to bring about the Nintendo Switch, but it's one of the fastest selling consoles of all time, so maybe there's something to it after all. The folks at Digital Foundry are looking ahead at what this partnership--which is predicted to last two decades--could bring.

For starters, a revamped Switch using the Tegra X2 is almost a foregone conclusion, as Nintendo is notorious for refreshing their portable hardware about halfway through a console's lifespan. The more interesting speculation concerns Nvidia's experimental chips and architecture, supplementary computing modules for the Switch, and their connection to Foxconn leaks from last year.

The video is pretty tech-heavy, but if you've been following the evolution of the Switch and its hardware, it's an intriguing look forward at what might come to pass.
