NVIDIA Announces Project SHIELD, Pure Android Gaming Portable


While not a mobile device, the just-announced Project SHIELD is NVIDIA’s new portable gaming console which is the first gadget powered by the Tegra 4 SoC, also recently announced at CES 2013. It just so happens that is a “pure Android”, as the manufacturer refers to it, thus giving access to any game title on the Google Play Store.

It can also stream games from a PC that has one of the company’s GeForce GTX GPUs at its core, with access to titles on the online STEAM game library.

The Tegra 4 SoC is the one powering this gaming portable, delivering “enormous power from its custom 72-core GeForce GPU and the first quad-core application of ARM’s most advanced CPU core, the Cortex-A15”. There’s also a  five-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution and a pixel density of 294 DPI.

Aside from being able of accessing Windows PC games, Android titles on the Google Play Store or NVIDIA’s own Tegra Zone, Project SHIELD can also run apps like Hulu, Netflix and Slacker Radio.
