Nvidia: Porting PS4, XBOX ONE and PC games to the Switch is simple thanks to the Tegra Chip
During their latest financial call CEO of Nvidia Jen-Hsun Huang has made some more comments about the Nintendo Switch, specifically in regards to porting games from the PS4, XBOX ONE and PC.
He stated that thanks to the Tegra Processor, which is similar to what is found in those consoles and most PCs, developers should be easy when porting over games to the Nintendo switch.
Here is what Huang had to say:
“The quality of games has grown significantly. And one of the factors of production value of games that has been possible is because the PC and the two game consoles, Xbox and PlayStation, and — in the near-future — the Nintendo Switch, all of these architectures are common in the sense that they all use modern GPUs, they all use programmable shading, and they all have basically similar features.”
“As a result of that, game developers can target a much larger installed base with one common code base and, as a result, they can increase the production quality, production value of the games,” Huang Added.
This is good news as one of the many complaints of the Wii U is that porting was not very easy. It’s nice to see that Nintendo addressed this.
