Nvidia confident in growth of PC gaming

Nvidia's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang was bullish about PC gaming's future in a recent earnings call, with Venturebeat reporting that Nvidia's earnings were up due to strong growth in sales for GeForce GTX GPUs up, even with built-in OEM graphics chip business stalling.

Indeed, Huang implied that it's the high-end that will continue to drive PC gaming's growth.

“The second half of the year we’re going to see some really solid games,” he said, referencing upcoming released including Call of Duty and Star Wars. “4K is here. Windows 10 is great. And the Skylake platform by Intel is going into production now. [Virtual reality] will go into production in the second half of the year.  Each of these drivers are pretty large scale. My expectation is that gaming, and high end gaming in particular, is going to grow nicely.”

This confidence in the PC market is reflected by other commentators, with analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy, in discussing Huang's comments, taking a pop at the console game market.

"Nvidia’s earnings is  further proof that the PC gaming market is insulated from a homogeneous consumer PC market,” he said. “PC gaming is big, and if this isn’t proof to the doubters, they will never believe."

Love to go back a few years to all the retards who claimed PC is dead, Console is future. The Cliffy B's and such of the world who abandoned their PC roots for a time and rode that Console nut sack like it was Dr Strangelove
