NVIDIA wants to port PC and console games to Tegra platform

Posted on Friday, February 25 2011 @ 21:25:07 CET by

NVIDIA announced it will help developers to port PC and console video games to devices running NVIDIA's Tegra SoC as well as the Google Android operating system. Seems like an odd move but NVIDIA is very bullish about the performance of its future Tegra processors. The next-gen Tegra 3 (aka Kal-El) promises a five-fold performance boost compared to Tegra 2 and by 2014 this exponential rise in mobile computing power should deliver Tegra 6 (Stark), a chip almost 100x more powerful than Tegra 2!
At the Game Developers Conference next month Nvidia will sponsor a session that will describe how to port games from PC and video game consoles to Google Android and Tegra. Nvidia will also showcase its own latest Android debugging and analysis tools that help to design and port video games for Google Android. The event shows a clear interest of the graphics and multimedia chip designer in high-quality games for mobile platforms.

Given Nvidia's leadership in graphics technologies on the PC, it is very natural for the company to transfer those technologies onto the market of handheld devices. Unfortunately for Nvidia, since modern mobile graphics processors do not really offer high performance and therefore applications do not need speed provided by Tegra and other expensive graphics solutions.
