NVIDIA says Switch is “doing incredibly well”, lots of praise for Nintendo

Posted on August 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

NVIDIA reported its latest financial results yesterday, and the company had a rather good quarter. Part of that was due to Switch, which has taken off in its first few months.

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang commented on Switch’s performance during a financial call with analysts and investors yesterday. Huang noted that the system is a “major component” of the company’s business along with self-driving car platforms and AI.

As for Switch, Huang pointed out how the console is “doing incredibly well”. He also had plenty of praise for Nintendo, noting that “they’re risk takers” and “innovators.”

Huang’s full words:

“We don’t break out the automotive from the rest of the Tegra business. The Tegra business consists of basically three parts at the moment. One major component of it is the Nintendo Switch gaming console, and it’s just doing incredibly well. I’m so happy for Nintendo because they’re risk takers. They’re innovators. They’re not influenced by what other people do, and they’re original thinkers. And I just love the way they invented the Switch and the way they’ve taken it to market. I’m so happy for them. And it’s doing really well.”

NVIDIA is powering Switch with a custom Tegra processor. It was previously said that “development encompassed 500 man-years of effort across every facet of creating a new gaming platform”.

    It’s great to hear some positive comments from the NVIDIA CEO with their hook-up with Nintendo in creating a hybrid system known as the Switch.

    • GoldenTriforce

      The known as part seems a bit odd but okay

  • PlaySaviour4

    They said the same thing for the PS3 LOL!

    • Game_God

      Put some lotion on it…

    • Shonenfan

      But the ps3 although with a rough price at launch, was a great all In console. You even could rip CD musics files. And the strongest system even than pc at the time.

      • PlaySaviour4

        Exactly. Thanks to IBM, Toshiba and Nvidia 🙂

      • Game_God

        ” And the strongest system even than pc at the time.” maybe stonger than your PC at the time, not PC in general, far from it… did you marry your PS3 had children & lived happily for ever in your fanboyish fairytale???

        • Shonenfan

          Back in 2006 it was stronger than pc. No need for insults. And how im a fanboy if a have both nintendo/sony systems?

          • Game_God

            Back in 2006 it was definitly not stronger than PC, when the PS3 released I had a PC that ran circles around the slow, low RAM, overheating, YLOD PS3.
            Not to mention that the PS3 couldn’t do 10% of the stuff I do with my PC… so again no!

          • Shonenfan

            Yeah ps3 had 256mb ram while pc had 1gigs ram. But cpu of ps3 was better

        • Shonenfan

          Also a pc with ps3 spec would also be much pricier back then

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….

      Yeah, I think you need to reread things. That quote is nothing alike what’s posted up there.

      • PRIMUS

        Let him go ahead; flattery is a great compliment, even when it is attached to jealousy.

    • Tlink7

      You need glasses. NVidia didn’t call the PS3 innovative. Because it isn’t. Nor did they say Sony are an original thinker. Because they aren’t. Playstations will forever be crappier gaming PC’s :3

        Dissing other consoles brands at a brand-specific websites is like shouting racist jibes in a white supremacist rally.
        It makes the bystander nervous, but your fellow lads patted you in the back, called you a brave man.

        • Tlink7

          Well obviously I am exaggerating, but the person whom I replied to kinda deserves harsh treatment. There is some truth to what I said though, because Sony doesn’t do real innovating; they just make a more powerful box every time. PC’s will always be able to perform better, however.

        • Busterblade

          Said person’s own choice to enter the situation he finds himself in. When one steps into a mud pit, is it not their own fault that they get covered, and stuck, in mud?

        • Huh? If you’re at a white supremacist rally, you are absolutely surrounded by racists. Sure, there can be bystanders in those situations (who probably fear for their life more than are nervous, if it’s in a completely public space), but what bystanders are here? The Sony fanboys and trolls that had to “knock Nintendo (fans) down a peg?”

          And as much as I love Sony, that isn’t much of a diss so much as a spot on assault. People talk mess about Nintendo’s online all the time and how they’re behind; it also isn’t wrong to call out Sony’s lack of innovation. (Especially since they’re pretty forward about not trying to be innovative.)

        • AJK

          Great analogy said no one ever.

    • AJK

      I really enjoyed some of my sony consoles over the years, but no one could ever call sony innovative when it comes to console design 🙂

      • PlaySaviour4

        LoL!
        Console design,eh?
        The SNES sound chip and CD-ROM technology itself are all designed by Sony to name a few.

        • AJK

          Actually it was the Denon company that invented the CD Rom in 1982. And a sound chip was hardly an innovation when the snes was designed

          • PlaySaviour4

            Sorry my bad I was talking about:
            Compact disc (CD) is a digital optical disc data storage format released in 1982 and co-developed by Philips and Sony. The format was originally developed to store and play only sound recordings but was later adapted for storage of data (CD-ROM). Several other formats were further derived from these, including write-once audio and data storage (CD-R), rewritable media (CD-RW), Video Compact Disc (VCD), Super Video Compact Disc (SVCD), Photo CD, Picture CD, CD-i, and Enhanced Music CD. The first commercially available Audio CD player, the Sony CDP-101, was released October 1982 in Japan.

          • PlaySaviour4

            CR-ROM was an extension of Compact Disc Digital Audio, and adapted the format to hold any form of digital data, with a storage capacity of 553 MiB.[3] CD-ROM was then introduced by Denon and Sony at a Japanese computer show in 1984.

            [3]? Lmao, you’re copy pasting from wikipedia.

          • PlaySaviour4

            My statements need to supported by real hard factual truth.

          • Reggie

            An excuse for plagiarism instead of explaining things in your own words, okay.

          • PlaySaviour4

            Wow, what is this negativity with you guys?
            I heard Nintendo games were supposed to be family friendly
            I wish I can hand you an encyclopedia book but I can’t.

          • Reggie

            So you couldn’t come up with a better response to your outright plagiarism, so you default to calling everyone on this site negative.

            Guess I won then. Next time you copy paste from wikipedia, do try to make a better effort at it.

    • PRIMUS

      The jealousy is strong in this one.

      • PlaySaviour4

        Jealousy?
        Where?

    • PRIMUS

      I see nothing of innovative or risk takers in the above in relation to Sony.

      • PlaySaviour4

        Getting into the video game home console business when Nintendo and Sega were the dominant super powers is the riskiest act one can ever think of in 1994.

        • Radish

          A major company already in the entertainment industry getting into the video game home console business after it began thriving again is the riskiest act you can think of? Lol

          I’d say Sega helped break the pie up a bit in the home console business, so naturally it was easier for Sony to enter the fray in the mid 90s than it would have been in 1990 (which is why they worked with Nintendo at the time). And yet in 2017 they still haven’t evolved past the SNES controller design they took back in 1994. Some risk!

          • PlaySaviour4

            LOL!
            Yeah right. It’s that easy. Your denial is amazing.

          • Radish

            I think it would have been very risky for Krispy Kreme donuts to enter the home console video game market in the mid 90s. Less so for Sony. Your logic fail is amazing.

      k.

    I have nothing more to add to this pure wonder of words above.

    Well looks like NintendoEverything finally got it’s dedicated fanboy/troll. Maybe it’s time to look into mods.

    • Tlink7

      We’ve had quite a few actually, they come and go

      • Busterblade

        This one is particularly, shall I say, special though.

        The epiphany of one thinking “console wars” isn’t a thing, while doing the whole “Look how much better the company I love is doing!!!”.

        • Tlink7

          I never understand why people do this. Seems like a colossal waste of time to me, besides the whole ”it makes you look like a giant a$$hole” thing

          • Busterblade

            Usually the reason any person perceived as a troll does it, “To get a raise out of people”, to “trigger them” etc.

    >NVIDIA is powering Switch with a custom Tegra processor. It was previously said that “development encompassed 500 man-years of effort across every facet of creating a new gaming platform”.

    And from X-ray scans and technical analysis, we know now that it’s nearly identical to the previous Tegra X1 used in the NVIDIA Shield.

    So the whole “500 man-years” comment isn’t in reference to the time spent just on Switch’s version of the chip, but the Tegra X1 in general
