NVidia Announces Project Shield Gaming Device

NVidia announces Project Shield, a new portable gaming device for open platforms. The Project Shield device, which features a 5-inch screen and a full-size ergonomic controller, lets users play both Android and PC titles. As an Android device, Project Shield provides access to any game on Google Play, and, as a wireless receiver and controller, it can stream games and access titles on its Steam game library from a PC powered by NVidia GeForce GTX GPUs. Project Shield comes with the latest Android Jelly Bean operating system from Google. “Project Shield was created by NVidia engineers who love to game and imagined a new way to play,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, cofounder and chief executive officer at NVidia. Project Shield features NVidia’s new Tegra 4 processor, which delivers powerful gaming capacity from its custom 72-core GeForce GPU and quadcore Cortex-A15 CPU. According to the announcement, the Project Shield device combines the NVidia Tegra 4, high-bandwidth, ultrafast wireless technology, and HD video and audio with a full-size, console-grade controller. It features an integrated 5-inch, 1280x720 HD retinal multitouch display with 294dpi.
