Nvidia brings together an ARM SoC and an RTX 3060

Nvidia brings together an ARM SoC and an RTX 3060

At the Game Developers Conference (GDC), Nvidia announced that it is now able to couple GeForce RTX technologies with ARM SoCs. The chameleon has indeed managed to couple a GeForce RTX 3060 to the ARM MediaTek Kompanio 1200 SoC, a companion of current Chromebooks. As a demonstration, Nvidia shared on YouTube an excerpt of a game sequence on Wolfenstein Youngblood. Be careful though, we have to take into account that there is no commercial version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood for ARM devices yet. For the moment we don’t know how Nvidia has made this game run, under Linux or under an ARM version of Windows.

A new warning shot in the X86 world

This is a big warning to the current CPU suppliers AMD and Intel. Until now, the potential deal of ARM’s takeover by Nvidia was seen from several angles but gaming was really a very theoretical possibility. Obviously, we can also think of Apple and its M1 chip. Others will mention the arrival of advanced technologies on mobiles…But at this moment, we can’t help but think of the announcement a few days ago of the Steam Deck console.

Imagine a Steam Deck with the graphics of an RTX and the autonomy of a Chromebook

Nvidia has certainly hit hard and opened up perspectives that obviously go beyond the use of raytracing on cell phones. Until a few years ago, the arrival of a gaming CPU made in Nvidia could have seemed like a dream… This is not really the case anymore. Whether you like Nvidia or not, it’s an exciting step that has just been taken for the PC world. We’ll have to see how the “commercial” combination of an RTX chip with an ARM SoC plays out in the coming months. If this combo takes off, AMD and Intel will have quite a thorn in their side!
