shield tablet

A newly leaked render could be showing off the rumored Android-based gaming tablet that may or may not be under development at NVIDIA, with its new Tegra K1 processor inside.

The render comes from the prolific gadget rumor source "evleaks" but aside from the image, name and a "2014" date he doesn't offer up any further information on the tablet. However, the UI does indicate that the tablet could run both Android and PC games, although it's possible the PC games use streaming technology from a nearby desktop.

Earlier this week, rumors hit the Internet that NVIDIA was planning to release an Android-based gaming device with its Tegra K1 chipset inside. NVIDIA has not commented on these specific rumors but an official spokesperson was quoted by the BBC as saying the company has an "awesome new gaming product that is launching soon." In 2013, it launched the NVIDIA Shield, a portable Android-based gaming console with a 5-inch screen that can also play games streamed from a PC.

What do you think of the rumors about NVIDIA launching a gaming-themed tablet?

I'm sure it will be. I have the Tegra Note 7 and it has excellent controller integration, far above what is built into Android.

Looks relatively awesome! I'm digging the double front facing speakers.

the Nvidia shield does play pc games I believe. or its vice versa I don't remember exactly but I personally would want a built in controller system than a tablet with touchscreen.

Looks how I imagined (or rather hoped) the fabled HTC Nexus tablet would look like.

Looks awesome. Nice minimalistic straight to the point design.
