I made a prediction a couple of months ago that the next SHIELD release we’d see would be an upgrade to the original – but with a dose of Tegra K1. As it turns out, I was wrong. However, like the SHIELD portable, NVIDIA’s just-announced SHIELD Tablet and Controller are two products that portable gaming fans should get excited about.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 800M mobile series brings the usual performance upgrades that a generational gap usually entails, but it’s with the features it brings that makes me feel like this is one of the most important mobile GPU launches to happen in a while. Read on to learn about them all, and to get a preview of 800M-equipped notebooks.
NVIDIA impressed at CES 2013 with the unveiling of its Tegra 4 processor, and as is now super-clear, it wanted to blow people’s socks off at the latest event. With Tegra K1, NVIDIA caters to gamers, developers, and believe it or not, car manufacturers. Let’s investigate and find out just what it brings to the table.
Are you a portable gamer that’s tired of the restrictions that bog down most handhelds? Based on Android, NVIDIA’s SHIELD portable helps fix that problem. At the same time, it even goes a step further to improve the gamepad solution. At $300, SHIELD is on the pricier side – but is it worth it?
Have an Android device that’s quickly running out of space due to limited internal memory? Have a large collection of apps that refuse to move over to your SD card? If either of these is true, then you need to know about a simple tweak that can be done to forcibly move over many apps to your SD card – all without rooting.
