Nvidia’s Shield Gaming Device

Veteran chipset developer Nvidia has made some surprising announcements at their press event at the International CES, but none more so than the unveiling of a new portable gaming console that will bear the company’s name.

The Nvidia Shield is another in a line of Android-based consoles to go into development in the past year. The console bares a strikingly strong resemblance to a portable Xbox console. Shield features a five inch flip-up screen, similar to that of Nintendo’s DS/3DS models, left and right thumb sticks, blue, yellow, green and red action buttons. A black paint job with lime green accents that give it that Xbox look.

[adsense250itp]Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang introduced Project Shield at the event and revealed some interesting details on the company’s first product in the gaming console market. The Shield will feature a micro SD slot for additional storage and will connect to the Cloud for Android gaming.

However, the most surprising part of the announcement is undoubtedly the inclusion of the newly developed Nvidia Tegra 4 quad-core processor. Basically, it means that Nvidia’s Shield should be packing more than enough horse power to smoothly play any and all Android, TegraZone and PC games with the inclusion of GeForce graphics cards.

The battery is always an issue for portable gaming consoles but Nvidia promises between five and ten hours of gameplay on a single charge, which is perfectly fair compared to similar products on the market today. Nvidia has even worked recently with Leyden Energy to help create longer lasting batteries for tablets.

The jump to gaming consoles is obviously a big step for Nvidia, but the company has been around for nearly 20 years and has managed to become a major player in the technology industry. The company has supplied chipsets for some of the video game industry’s biggest names, including Sony’s PlayStation 3.
