Following NVIDIA’s Q3 results, the company had a financial call a few days ago during which CEO Jen-Hsun Huang had a few comments about the Nintendo Switch, which will be integrating a custom Tegra processor from NVIDIA. [Thanks, NeoGAF.]
The question that prompted the comments was regarding the increased revenues in NVIDIA’s gaming division, to which Huang noted “Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth.” He also mentioned that he believes people will be “amazed” by the Switch when they see it. Huang also commented that he is “super excited” about NVIDIA’s relationship with Nintendo and he foresees it lasting approximately two decades.
Here’s Haung’s entire commentary on the Nintendo Switch:
“I guess you could also say that Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth. And over the next – as you know, the Nintendo architecture and the company tends to stick with an architecture for a very long time. And so we’ve worked with them now for almost two years. Several hundred engineering years have gone into the development of this incredible game console. I really believe when everybody sees it and enjoy it, they’re going be amazed by it. It’s really like nothing they’ve ever played with before. And of course, the brand, their franchise and their game content is incredible. And so I think this is a relationship that will likely last two decades and I’m super excited about it.”
The Nintendo Switch is slated to release in March of 2017.
