These two new chips are the SoC t234 and t239being first of them a canceled prototype by NVIDIA according to information from Tech_Reve (a tweeter with very good information about all types of hardware), while the t239 would currently be in productionthat is, it is currently being manufactured.

It seems like T234 has been canceled, and T239 is scheduled to be produced on Samsung Foundry’s 8nm process for Switch 2. Revegnus (@Tech_Reve) September 12, 2023
