Nvidia CEO Believes Ports For The Nintendo Switch Will BE Simple Due To The Tegra Chip

Nvidia CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, spoke about the Nintendo Switch in the company’s financial call last week. Huang advised that the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and soon the Switch, have modern GPU’s in common, and as a result of that, game developers can “target a much larger base with one common code”. The Nintendo Switch has recently been confirmed to have a Tegra chip powered by Nvidia. Here’s what Huang mentioned in the call: “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.” As a result of that, game developers can target a much larger installed base with one common code base and, as a result, they can increase the production quality, production value of the games.” Thoughts ?
