NVIDIA Set to Take on the Micro-Console Market Again

A high-end version of a PC-to-TV micro-console is an idea that the Ouya company sparked it released it’s product to the masses last year, and other micro-consoles in concept have been announced to come to retail in the future since then.

NVIDIA is one of them. The computer hardware company that excels in providing gamers with top-notch PC and Laptop specs to help gaming performance has approached this idea by taking one of their own failed products and turning them around to fit today’s demands for the micro-console industry.


Enter NVIDIA‘s Sheild Tablet. Powered by their in-house Tegra K1 processor, the 8-inch, slick-screen device comes with two front speakers and a 5-megapixel camera located in the front and back of the hardware. NVIDIA‘s new toy comes in both 16GB and 32GB, the latter being potentially most sought after considering it’s LTE bundle. The tablet potentially lasts up to 10 hours and has a barrage of other neat specs, including its HDMI support and the ability to stream games from a nearby PC using the GeForce experience.

Compound this sexy little rocker with their Shield Controller, which unsurprisingly looks built after the Xbox controller over the years, and you have a pretty decent Mini-PC console set up. Noting the streaming games option, it’s also pretty clear that you could run some Steam games on this NVIDIA‘s Shield Tablet as well.

According to BBC news, NVIDIA has yet to drop more information as far as a release date. However, the tablet seems to be releasing next Tuesday, July 29. The 16GB version will be set at $299 while the 32GB version will be set at $399. The Shield Controller is already available, and will add another $59 to your tab.
