NVIDIA exec believes new consoles will push PC gaming forward

NVIDIA PC Gaming

Even though NVIDIA was passed over for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the company’s senior vice president, Toni Temasi, is excited for Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles. Both gaming systems, and even Nintendo’s Wii U, are powered by hardware designed by rival chipmaker AMD. But Temasi said that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have helped close the performance gap between PC and console gaming, The Verge reported. The executive noted that the company’s $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan graphics card is roughly two and a half times more powerful than the PlayStation 4, compared to 13-times more powerful than the PlayStation 3. He believes that the new consoles will help “raise the bar” for PC gaming, adding that developers will no longer be intimidated by high-end PC graphics and can now “build really awesome content that can then scale to the PC.”
