After many rumours, Nvidia itself has indirectly confirmed who will be behind Nintendo’s future handheld, according to rumors Switch Pro.
Basically, the reputable graphics chip company posted a job posting looking for a “Engineer Tools Developer Console“, it is therefore logical to think that the fruitful collaboration between Nvidia and Nintendo has been prolonged over time, and even more so with the rumors that will take advantage of Nvidia DLSS technology to provide a better visual appearance, without performance issues, when the console is connected to a higher resolution external display.
“Are you passionate about 3D graphics, GPUs and low-level quasi-hardware programming? Have you ever dreamed of helping bring video games to life? Do you want to work with a fast, agile and experienced team? Are you Are you ready?” Nvidia is looking to hire a highly technical, creative and hands-on software engineer to launch the next generation of graphics development tools for console games,” the job posting states.
“You will work with the Nvidia Graphics Tools team to create tools that allow developers around the world to harness the full power of Nvidia GPUs. We are looking for an entry-level programmer to help us deliver the best possible experience for gamer developers who want to debug and optimize their games.
For the rest, it is expected that when it comes to processor cores, ARM cores will continue to be used, but this time designed and customized by Nvidia according to the needs of the company with its future portable console, to which will be added powerful graphics based on a new generation architecture as well as an advanced manufacturing process to promise high energy efficiency, and now Nintendo is obliged to offer a console which at least in terms of power is superior to the Steam Deckalthough of course that remains to be seen, since Nintendo always likes to go its own way.
