Northward, ho!

NVIDIA GameWorks Studio — our crack team of gaming technology engineers — is opening a Toronto office. It will be NVIDIA’s first in Canada.

At its heart is the cross-platform portability team we’re acquiring from TransGaming, one of that country’s most innovative game-technology companies. Click here to check out TransGaming’s press release on the transaction.

If you love PC games, you’ve probably seen their work. Our GameWorks middleware includes PhysX, which simulates the effect of physics on objects, HairWorks, which gives characters more realistic hair and fur, and more.

Canada looms large in the gaming world. It’s home to major game studios such as Ubisoft, Rockstar Vancouver and BioWare. Additionally, Toronto is a leading force in deep-learning, a key focus area for NVIDIA.
