NVIDIA Introduces SHIELD TV and SHIELD TV Pro
NVIDIA has expanded the Shield line with two new products. It concerns the SHIELD TV and the SHIELD TV Pro, which have a suggested retail price of 159.99 euros and 219.99 euros.
In 2015, NVIDIA released the NVIDIA SHIELD TV. This is a game console that runs on Android TV. In 2017, the company launched an upgraded version and now the series has received another upgrade. The media streamers are readily available in America, Canada and a number of European countries.
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV and NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro have received a faster processor. The Tegra X1 + processor should provide a performance gain of 25 percent. The chipset has support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and can upscale HD streams with artificial intelligence to 4K quality. You can operate the devices via the Google Assistant.
The Pro version has 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, two USB 3.0 ports and support for Bluetooth 5.0, hard drives and other USB devices. The device runs on Android TV version 9.0. The cheaper version has 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, dual-ben Wi-Fi and a built-in Chromecast 4K. The SHIELD TVs have received a new remote control that works on two AAA batteries. This remote has motion-activated backlit buttons, a built-in ‘lost remote’ locator, a Netflix button and a microphone for voice control.
