Nvidia ready to provide tools, resources and support to developers on Windows 8 platform.

Windows 8 developer conference revealed the new Windows 8 as the first OS that will run on both x86 and ARM architect. This will bring the huge library of windows applications natively to both the platforms. PCs are based on x86 chips while the smartphones and tablets are dominated by ARM processors. Nvidia has jumped the Windows 8 bandwagon by announcing their full support for development of games on it. Both the tablet and desktop developers can join this program to get the best benefits out of new Windows 8 features and their usage with Nvidia’s processors like Tegra, Geforce, Quadro and Tesla.

This developer program will give developers nvidia support, tools and resources to easily develop games and apps for Windows 8 based devices. Nvidia has ATI as rival in dekstop and console GPU race and Qualcomm as rival in tablet market. So, if their program gets more developers interested they will be killing two birds with one stone by rallying strong developers in their support on both forefronts.
