Nintendo Switch Will Be Impressive, Says Nvidia CEO

The Switch – Nintendo’s upcoming console, meant to marry the portable and home experiences – will blow people away, according to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

“It’s very Nintendo,” Huang said about the system during CES. “That entire experience is going to be very Nintendo. The beauty of that company, the craft of that company, the philosophy of that company – they’re myopically, singularly focused on making sure that the gaming experience is amazing, surprising, and safe for your people, for children.”

"Their dedication to their craft, that singular dedication, is quite admirable,” Huang continued. “When you guys all see Switch, I believe people are going to be blown away, quite frankly. It's really delightful."

The Switch will run on Nvidia’s Tegra chip, with an ARM-like instruction-set that’s used on most modern smartphones and tablets. Reports have also said that it will run on Nvidia’s older Maxwell GPU technology, and not the newer Pascal architecture. Hardware specs for the Nintendo Switch haven’t been fully released yet.

Nintendo is hosting a briefing this week live from Tokyo, on January 13, 5PM NZT. You can tune in here.

Ive always seen Nintendo as a family and kids type console and games lineup, in a totally different niche to xbox and ps market . No different with Switch it looks/sounds like (but as expected) especially with calling it "delightful" and "safe" lol
Still looking forward to the announcement and always intrigued to what they are changing up esp with the next console, even though like always anything Nintendo has never been my thing.

Exactly this....why would a company rep or head say a piece of hardware they were working on was terrible???? They simply wouldn't. I like everything I've seen about the Switch so far and it's more likely to join my household before a Playstation would but yeah every product is marketed as being great until it no longer is.

I am quietly confident (or at least have my fingers crossed) that this is going to be a awesome piece of hardware.

The Switch has unique selling points that make you more than curious.

The portability and controller functions make it attractive, imagine as per the reveal vid. If you are wandering through your local Westfield and see somebody in the foodcourt playing PES, so you rock up flip out your Switch and start playing a match with them.

In the right space, if the product delivers on the reveal, it really is game changer in many ways.
