It’s been suggested many times now that a future Nintendo Switch Pro console may take advantage of Nvidia’s AI upscaling system called DLSS, or Deep Learning Super Sampling to be precise. Our chums at Digital Foundry have explored the subject thoroughly if you’re curious to learn more.
To that end it’s not entirely unrealistic to image games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild running at resolutions approaching 4K due to its small CPU usage, but we can go one better than just imagining thanks to the hard work of SnazzyAI on YouTube.
They reached out to us to ask if we wanted to host their latest work; using AI upscaling to make the 2017 Nintendo Switch presentation trailer for Breath of the Wild present itself in 4K and at 60 frames per second. Naturally this is only an artist’s interpretation of what might be possible, but nevertheless it’s still wondrous to think that visuals even approaching this level may not be completely impossible thanks to this swanky new technology.
