Nintendo Switch + Nvidia Hardware Details Emerge

Nvidia just released a blog about the hardware that’s gonna be powering the new Nintendo Switch, and it looks like it’s going to be quite the little powerhouse.

Welllllllllll looky here! Nvidia coming HOT out of the gate talking cash shit about how amazingly powerful Nintendo Switch is going to be. They’re claiming on their blog that the Switch is also supported by custom software, a revamped physics engine, and new gaming APIs to “fully harness this performance”. Now, this all sounds like technical jargon to me, but Nvidia’s goal is clear: “To bring lightweight, fast gaming to the masses.”

Nvidia goes on to say that they’ve developed a custom OS that integrates with the Switch’s GPU to maintain performance and efficiency whether the system is docked or on-the-go. It seems like we’re in for a wild few months, and I’m personally stoked to see what other news comes out about exactly how powerful the Switch is going to be.

Nintendo Switch is coming in March of 2017, and you can check out more info on Nintendo’s official site. Stay tuned to @WickedGoodGames on Twitter for more updates.
