Nividia Shield

A new Shield with an even more powerful chip means game developers can go even further — and we can't wait to see what they come up with

The NVIDIA Shield is one of those niche devices that never made it big. Having had one for a long while, I can tell you that there is no better way to play the highest-end games built for mobile (on any platform, sorry Infinity Blade series, but it's true) and extras like PC game streaming make for a great little gadget for the serious gamer. The device just didn't garner much enthusiasm with the mainstream Android user.

The good news for fans of the handheld console is that NVIDIA has no plans to abandon it, and are actively developing the next version — which may have the insanely-powerful Logan chip at its heart. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has said as much in an interview with Engadget at their big event in Montreal.

To us, the reason why Android is such an important platform is, we want to do for Android what GeForce did for PCs

There was no hint on when anything would be available, or any pricing, but we're excited to see what game developers can do with an even more powerful chip to push to the limit. Be sure to visit the source link to watch the full 10-minute interview.
