Nvidia Announces The Nvidia Shield

This time, it’s a console.

Nvidia has already released the Nvidia Shield handheld and the Nvidia Shield tablet- both of these were exceptional and exemplary products, that catered to a highly profitable niche very well. Now, they have gone ahead and announced the third product in the Nvidia Shield line. This time, it is an Android powered microconsole, powered by the Tegra X1.

With support for 4K streaming, the GRID cloud, Android TV, a remote, the controller, and some extremely impressive specs, including 520 Gigaflops, and 3 GB of RAM, it certainly looks impressive, but I have to say, I am a fair bit disappointed by this announcement. Nvidia had been hyping it up, and seeing that all of it amounted to an Android microconsole is underwhelming and anti climactic. Especially since the market is flooded with Android micro consoles, none of which really amounted to anything at all.

Of course, with support for the Nvidia GRID service, it will be able to play AAA games like Borderlands, so it certainly has that going for it. Let’s wait and see how it develops, at any rate.

    This was so embarrassing I’m thinking of changing my name to GamingEvolved.

    Between that and Sony getting possessed by the spirit of Kurtagi at their VR event. It’s in the running for most embarrassing conference of the year and we still have E3 to go.

      Sony announced a VR headset that runs at 720P, far below Valve and OR’s headsets and needs interpolation to run at an acceptable for VR framerate. That was painful to watch.

      And no one mentioned sales. PC Gaming already is the dominant platform of the generation anyway. All you are doing is astroturfing for a 30FPS console. I like my games running at 60FPS or above, thanks.
