Nvidia's enthusiastic CEO believes continued growth of Nvidia gaming notebooks will soon mean they earn the "game console" title
Nvidia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, believes the continued success and growth of Nvidia gaming laptops effectively means they’re akin to “a new game console,” and if the graphics card company’s success continues with Turing and further GPU generations, gaming notebooks will become “the largest game console in the world.”
“…the amount of notebook sales and the success of Nintendo Switch has really changed the profile of our overall gaming business,” Huang says during Nvidia’s Q4 earnings call (via Seeking Alpha). “Our notebook business, as Colette mentioned earlier, has seen double-digit growth for eight consecutive quarters, and this is unquestionably a new gaming category. Like it’s a new game console. This is going to be the largest game console in the world I believe.”
Nvidia’s head honcho believes gaming laptops will outrank the Xbox, PS4, and Nintendo Switch as the largest “game console” platform worldwide.
“…the reason for that is because there are more people with laptops than there are of any other device,” Huang continues. “And so the fact that we’ve been able to get RTX into a thin and light notebook is really a breakthrough. And it’s one of the reasons why we’re seeing such great success in notebook.”
