    I'm sure I must have seen this numbers before, but the NES sure was a juggernaut, even the SNES really.

    But for the NES to have sold those kind of numbers, back in the 80s, wow.

    "latest Samsung / AMD Radeon partnership"

    I can't see it. Nvidia managed to clear their bulk of Tegra chips, buy off loading them cheap, which got Nintendo onboard. But now they've had a taste of the profits, I'm sur they'll provide a better alternative, should it be required, if only to prevent AMD having a monopoly over gaming (not just consoles, as devs create for cross platform, it's becoming increasing easier for them to target AMD / console then port with little effort)

    If this is true, it could be the WII U 2 (sarcasm, after the disaster with the naming of the Wii successor).

    It's evident that the Switch started development as 3DS replacement to interact with the Wii U or it's successor, before that was abandoned, until the next gen model appears. Now they have even more funds and a huge base to build on.

    I highly doubt Nvidia are realistically thinking of continuing the Tegra lineup, it was very unprofitable for them.

    Maybe so but if they got into bed with Nintendo on a New custom SoC deal then maybe it'd benefit both parties. Who knows what the future holds?

    Thought they'd done pretty well with Tegra: sales of both the Nintendo Switch and Nvidia's own various iterations of the Shield Tablet / TV console have been strong. Hard to imagine them not making a good chunk of cash from those ventures.

    Didn't stop them bringing out a couple more SoCs since then, and they've had a few design wins in embedded computing for cars. Nintendo could take their pick from the library (an X2 or Xavier would be a good fit).

    Despite pandemic, it is not despite. People have more free time at home, just game more.

    This is a huge achievement but it still reminds me of how amazingly well the ps2 sold... only 100M units to go before the Switch catches up lol

    That site is just pure speculation by a Samsung fan site so it's utter nonsense.

    Nvidia have continued to develop their Arm SoC's they are just no longer branded as Tegra. Providing updated hardware to Nintendo is easy for Nvidia.

    Nintendo isn't going to go for some ultra high end handheld, it will be a paired down version of something Nvidia has already designed. Unless Nintendo wants to pay big money for a true custom designed silicon but that is madness, just not worth it.

    Very easy & cheap to fix though if its a Switch. £10 will fix two controllers & can be done in like 30mins for both.

    Thats the best thing about the Switch, apart from the USB port/motherboard, most repairs are very straight forward and cheap.
