It has a chance to beat PS4s peak year. Nintendo generally has stronger sales in December than Sony.

The sales of nintendo consoles in general always were the best in november + december.
The switch will make way more than PS4 peak year in those 2 months because the strongest months november and december were always for nintendo consoles and by much. Switch will probably end this year with 23-25M.
