Why The Nintendo Switch Needed To Run On Nvidia Tech
March 3 is only less than a month away, and a lot of gamers are gearing up for the release of the Nintendo Switch. The console looks to be packing some interesting specs when it comes to hardware, and apparently, using Nvidia tech on the Switch was a "top priority" for Nintendo.
Nvidia And Nintendo
According to Nintendo Today, Nvidia had impressed Nintendo with their work on PC graphics, and the company had decided to bring the developers into work on the hardware for the Nintendo Switch. Genyo Takeda, head of technology in Nintendo, said, "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."
Low power consumption could be key to the Switch as it's said to be powerful enough to play heavier games like Skyrim Remastered and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With the console being portable, gamers could find it frustrating if the battery runs out of juice just minutes into gameplay.
Though the Nintendo Switch doesn't look to be as powerful as its rivals like the Xbox One and PS4, the console does win on terms of variety and portability.
Nintendo Switch Vs. Wii U
After the flop that was the Wii U, Nintendo really needs the Switch to be a success, and based on the positive reception of the marketing from the fans, the Switch looks like it will immediately sell out come launch day.
One of the biggest concerns for the Switch was the lack of games that will be available for the console, but news has it that there will be a steady stream of games coming to the Switch, with over 100 games underway and 70 different developers working on them.
A lot of hopes are riding on the Nintendo Switch, and fans hope that the console doesn't disappoint when it comes out on March 3.
