Genyo Takeda, Nintendo’s ‘Technology Fellow’ who researches and helps create Nintendo hardware, talked about how getting NVIDIA‘s GeForce onto the Nintendo Switch was a top priority for the firm. In their recent investor Q&A, Takeda had the following to say on the matter:
“If I can sum up my impression in one short phrase, I would use “high performance but low power consumption” to describe Nintendo Switch”, he said. “The PC has been a major gaming device, especially outside of Japan, and my top priority in the development of the Nintendo Switch hardware was to bring NVIDIAʼs GeForce, which has played a key role in realizing high-performance graphics for PC gaming, to our hardware with low power consumption. The term “crossover” is sometimes used to describe the unprecedented value that is realized when merging two different attractive things (such as, in this case, high performance and low power consumption, and playing both indoors and outdoors). I feel that Nintendo Switch is a new and unique crossover in its achievement of high performance, comparable to that of PC, both in front of your TV set and in your hands.”
Nintendo Switch is prepared for launch March 3rd, 2017 along with anticipated game of the year Zelda: Breath of The Wild.
