    Nvidia CEO Explaines Why They Went With the Nintedno Switch



    Venture Beat had a chance to talk to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang about why Nvidia will be powering the Nintendo Switch.
    VB: There was a day when it seemed like you were happy with just serving the PC gaming market. The console was a less attractive market. I wonder why you guys went after the Nintendo Switch and how you accomplished that.

    Huang: Weíre dedicated to the gaming market and always have been. Some parts of the market, we just werenít prepared to serve them. I was fairly open about how, when this current generation of consoles was being considered, we didnít have x86 CPUs. We werenít in contention for any of those. However, the other factor is whether we could really make a contribution or not. If a particular game console doesnít require our special skills, what we can uniquely bring, then itís a commodity business that may not be suited for us.

    In the case of Switch, it was such a ground-breaking design. Performance matters because games are built on great performance, but form factor and energy efficiency matter incredibly because they want to build something thatís portable and transformable. The type of gameplay they want to enable is like nothing the world has so far. Itís a scenario where two great engineering teams, working with their creative teams, needed to hunker down. Several hundred engineering years went into building this new console. Itís the type of project that really inspires us, gets us excited. Itís a classic win-win.

    Interesting. I think that backs up the ARM CPU rumor
