To be nitpicky, but it's important to be in this case, KMS has nothing to do with the console switching to a high resolution. It's all because there a fbcon driver integrated into the KMS drivers.
Nvidia doesn't use KMS but they do have modesetting in the kernel. So all that would be necessary is for them to have a fbcon driver in their module. But they won't do it because none of their main customers require it.
