PARTNERING WITH NVIDIA
One of the Wii U’s biggest blunders was its lack of power. Performance has been a hot topic of current generation consoles, and Nintendo’s decision to set their sights low no doubt played a role in the system’s dismal financial success. When rumors of a home/mobile hybrid began to circulate, many worried the issue of power would continue plaguing the company’s platforms.
While Nintendo has no plans of outperforming the PlayStation 4, or Xbox One, they do plan on delivering a dependable product. Well known tech company, Nvidia, has announced its role in the production of the Switch, providing a customized Tegra processor to be used by the console. It isn’t exactly clear how much power this processor has, but associating with a trusted name in performance like Nvidia is a step in the right direction for Nintendo.
