There are many things happening at the Google IO event, and one of the most happening things at the event is Nvidia’s gaming platform.The first watershed in the development of the gaming platform since Arma Tactics launched the NVIDIA’s Project Shield gaming console. Nvidia introduced the handheld gaming system called Project Shield at the CES 2013.
The last few months have seen a lot of information being released about the Nvidia gaming platform. The Nvidia shield offers a pure Android experience. There is no change in the Android UI and the device runs on the Android Jelly Bean OS and weaves seamlessly like any other application.
The dashboard is pretty simple to operate, and you can also play other games, apps, and emulators like any other Android Device. The device boasts a 720p display and weight of the device is pretty comfortable to hold.
Nvidia has removed the Project part of the name, and the device will be available for pre-orders from 20th May, and the device will be shipping from June, though no specific dates have been given.
When Nvidia Shield was announced at the CES 2013, the very Idea seemed very ridiculous. However, it is not so. On first glance, it can look a little out of place but when you hold the game pad in your hand you get the familiar feel of any gaming console.
The Nvidia Shield features a Tegra 4 Quad Core Processor and so also a 72-core GeForce GPU. With such awesome processing power, there is not much to ask more. Forget the odd design, the device feels great to hold. Nvidia has not revealed much about the disk capacity, and all we know is that the console will be having a MicroSD card slot for augmenting the storage capacity. Ports include a micro USB port, a headphone jack and an HDMI port for easy video output to a big screen.
