A few days ago Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang had some very good things to say about the Nintendo Switch console — and he would, since Nvidia is providing the CPU/GPU and manufacturing it for the console.
Now Huang has even more good things to say about the Switch. In an interview with Venture Beat on AI, computers, and the tech world in general, Huang briefly talked about the Switch console, calling it a “groundbreaking design”, adding:
“Performance matters, because games are built on great performance, but form factor and energy efficiency matter incredibly, because they want to build something that’s portable and transformable”
Huang said that the folks at Nvidia were “inspired” by working on the Switch, and called the partnership with Nintendo a “win-win”.
The Nintendo Switch is powered by a custom Nvidia Tegra processor, which includes an ARM CPU and Nvidia GPU. The latest reports suggest that the Switch GPU is about half as powerful as the PS4, and the the Switch features 4 GB of RAM.
