NVIDIA CEO not impressed by Windows RT

Posted on Wednesday, March 20 2013 @ 18:15:46 CET by

Over at the GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said he's not thrilled with Windows RT, as he feels the operating system isn't where it ought to be right now. Huang complained that sales of Windows RT devices are a lower than expected, but added that he believes RT will eventually enjoy a good position in the market.
"Windows RT is disappointing to us because we expected to have sold more than we did," said Huang, according to CNet News. Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor powers many Windows RT devices, from Microsoft's Surface RT to Asus' VivoTab RT to Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11, so Huang isn't complaining about market share within the Windows RT market—he's complaining about the operating system itself.

"Is Windows RT important to Microsoft?" he later asked. "Is ARM important to Microsoft? I can't believe the answer could be 'I'm not sure.' It's too important ... because there are a large number of devices. ... They need to find a way to get into that ecosystem." Huang went on to complain about the lack of an ARM version of Outlook, which no doubt impedes the operating system's prospects in the business world. (Windows RT isn't capable of running x86 software.)
