    I did suspect this may be part of their gameplan, when the news initially broke.

    That's not running on Windows for ARM, judging by the console window top left.

    Their Tegra line of SoCs have been running Nvidia graphics on Linux for years, so the hardware support doesn't seem such a jump. More the Id Software game engine really.

    Don't, fat fingers+mobile = premature posting.


    But yeah, I almost posted as such, the Switch being the biggest success for this SoC. I meant more of them buying up ARM, them pushing their Nvidia GPU IP more

    They seemed pretty up front about pushing their graphics IP as an ARM option. I think I said at the time I would be worried if I was on the ARM GPU team at this buyout, though it could be argued that the ARM graphics was always a cheapish option so possibly still no real overlap. But two GPU teams at Nvidia makes little sense long term.

    With the right drivers in place, Nvidia could offer all the parts to make supercomputers. They have Mellanox networking and the big GPUs, and if they are lining up for an assault on server business then showing their GPU drivers just work even with games is a win for some nice high end supercomputer deals.

    Re: Nvidia demos GeForce RTX on the Arm platform

    The Switch already runs 2016 Doom and one of the recent Wolfenstein titles,so I am not surprised that a more powerful GPU,on an ARM platform can run some RT effects.

    Re: Nvidia demos GeForce RTX on the Arm platform

    Being as they are about to own ARM it's hardly big news that all the Nvidia gpu/compute stuff is going to work with what will be Nvidia cpu's.
    I can see this being much more important for compute then gpu's (unless they get a console deal). Having some combined compute/ai/cpu packages for data centres/super computers so they no longer need x86 is an obvious way for Nvidia to go.
