It's official, Nintendo is dumping IBM and is jumping aboard the Nvidia boat.

"Nintendo Switch is powered by the performance of the custom Tegra processor. The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an NVIDIA GPU based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards."

I'd say this is great news when it comes to third party support, as I'd wager games are infinitely easier to port with Nvidia tech under the hood. Backwards compatibility will be much harder to accomplish though.

No, wait, that's right. They were using IBM's processors and AMD's gpu's. Nevertheless, this is the same technology used in the (failed) Nvidia Shield handheld.

Well that's great news for an Nvidia user, who is really happy for being able to play new Battlefront on an almost 3-year-old laptop.
I'm more interested in the screen though. I have a chinese smartphone with a 5.5" fHD IPS screen and it looks absolutely gorgeous.
I'm pretty sure that they can go full HD, but I fear that FPS and AA solutions may take a hit.
