NVIDIA Next-Gen Console Tools Engineer Job Ads might be hinting at a possible Nintendo Switch Successor

Rumours about a new Nintendo Switch have been circulating for a while, with the recent NVIDIA leak possibly confirming that an Ampere-architecture-powered, DLSS-enabled machine is in the works.

Nintendo has lately stated that new hardware is becoming increasingly important to them, admitting that a smooth transition to the next generation is a top goal. A new NVIDIA job ad could be the latest indication that Nintendo is working on new hardware.

A job ad for a “Game Console Developer Tools Engineer” has been posted by NVIDIA. The job title pretty much says it all: the successful candidate will be building the “next generation” of graphics tools to make it easier for console developers to use NVIDIA GPU technology and features.

Here’s what the Job Description for NVIDIA Graphics Developer Tools Teams looked like:


Are you passionate about 3D graphics, GPUs, and low-level, close to hardware programming? Have you ever dreamed of helping bring video games to life? Do you want to work with a fast, agile, and experienced team? Are you ready to move at the speed of light? NVIDIA is looking to hire a deeply technical, creative, and hands-on software engineer to pioneer the next generation of Graphics Developer Tools for Game Consoles.

You will work with the NVIDIA Graphics Tools team to build tools that enable developers worldwide to harness the full power of NVIDIA GPUs. We are looking for a low-level programmer to help us provide the best possible experience for game developers seeking to debug and optimize their games.

NVIDIA is looking for people with a talent for “GPU low-level performance tuning/optimization,” with the goal of “allowing developers to achieve faster and more consistent frame rates,” according to the job description.

A switch is the only console on the market using NVIDIA silicon (the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S both have AMD SoCs), thus this new employee might be working on “next-generation” developer tools for only one firm. The fact that the job description emphasizes maximizing the performance of possibly limited-power devices also reminds me of another Switch-like system.
