Will the company follow through?
Plenty of people have likely heard about the Nvidia Shield, but at this point, you can’t be blamed if you’re not sure what the device is supposed to be. Once planned as a handheld, the Nvidia Shield is now a console and the company has started advertising the console hard.
The latest advertising push has the firm putting out a bunch of videos, including one dedicated to the GeForce Now cloud gaming service. This video claims the Shield will be able to offer 4X faster gameplay than the “current consoles.
“Instantly play on-demand PC games powered by supercharged NVIDIA Pascal GPUs in the cloud that drive 4X faster gameplay than “next-gen” game consoles. Log in for multiplayer gaming and online leaderboards anywhere there’s a SHIELD. The first month is even free for a limited time.”
