The new NERD or Nintendo European Research and Development division at Nintendo, formerly Mobiclip, is seeking out more technology. While the teams back at Nintendo’s main headquarters focus on developing software, NERD is looking into GPGPU cloud computing.
NERD CTO Alexandre Delattre, pointed out in the last Nintendo direct that its important for the group at Nintendo headquarters to continue working heavily on developing the platform while his group spends its time investigating new technology.
At this time NERD is ironically hiring new researchers in the field of cloud technology, heterogenous computing, and GPGPU development.
What do you think of this new venture? Is Nintendo a little late to the party by looking into cloud now? Share your comments below.
