NVIDIA Praises Nintendo For The Switch: ‘They Are Risk Takers’

4.3
For the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo ended up partnering with NVIDIA for their Tegra chipset to power their new system. NVIDIA has, other than Apple, the leading mobile chipset, and given the Switch’s form factor and hybrid console considerations, they were best suited to provide Nintendo with what they needed.

It seems like this has been a very happy partnership for the both of them, too. NVIDIA has spoken openly about how impressed they have been with Nintendo since working with them, and in a new statement released during their most recent financial earnings, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke very highly of Nintendo.

“One major component of our Tegra business is the Nintendo Switch gaming console, and it’s just doing incredibly well”, he told investors.“I’m so happy for Nintendo because they’re risk takers. They’re innovators. They’re not influenced by what other people do, and they’re original thinkers. And I just love the way they invented the Switch and the way they’ve taken it to market. I’m so happy for them. And it’s doing really well.”

Of course, Nintendo has always taken risks. Nintendo takes risks with its hardware, Nintendo takes risks with its games, Nintendo is a legitimate trail blazer in the industry. For years, Nintendo has defined the path the rest of the industry will take. They had begun to fall behind in the Wii U era- with the Switch, we may see their influence returning.

I just never been much of a handheld walk around and game guy or game on a mobile device that much, I'd rather play console but the switch was a great product.

I just feel like this 'console' is for the younger generation.

Nintendo done a great job on the Switch IMO, and I'm happy it's getting the good feedback it is.

Craig NVidia take risks, but not as risky as what Nintendo do. Where as NVidia want to innovate, Nintendo only seem to wanna stick to the past.. That's why im not a fan...


Theres 2 other consoles out there that focuses on the new games Nintendo is basically there own market there's a select number of people who like nintendo stuff just because its not trying to do what everything else seems to be doing now a days.

KyloCrux Surely was a risk making a handheld console, but after a lot of convincing, I think it will be something I might get this Christmas time. Looks like a lot of fun when out traveling.

Yeah my buddy has one it's pretty fun to use at his house or out. Arms is pretty fun too pick it up if you get one
