Nintendo Switch Presentation is just a few days away and fans are eager to find out the game line-up and other details about the console. Ahead of the event Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, has shared his thoughts about the upcoming console.
According to Huang, Nintendo Switch will blow you away in terms of what Nintendo has been able to achieve with its dedication to their craft. Huang said during CES 2017 that the console is very Nintendo.
It’s very Nintendo. That entire experience is going to be very Nintendo. The beauty of that company, the craft of that company, the philosophy of that company–they’re myopically, singularly focused on making sure that the gaming experience is amazing, surprising, and safe for young people, for children.
Their dedication to their craft, that singular dedication, is quite admirable. When you guys all see Switch, I believe people are going to be blown away, quite frankly. It’s really delightful.
The upcoming console will feature a Nvidia Tegra processor and according to the rumors, the GPU will also be Nvidia’s Maxwell architecture based GPU.
This is not the first time Nvidia has supported the upcoming console. During the company’s latest financial Huang said that Tegra Processor is much similar to what is found in Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and most PCs. So the developers will be able to port their games to Nintendo Switch quite easily.
The quality of games has grown significantly. And one of the factors of production value of games that has been possible is because the PC and the two game consoles, Xbox and PlayStation, and — in the near-future — the Nintendo Switch, all of these architectures are common in the sense that they all use modern GPUs, they all use programmable shading, and they all have basically similar features.
Nintendo Switch is expected to launch in March 2017 but a specific release date and price are still to be announced.
