NVIDIA Shield 2

Being about a year since NVIDIA launched its Tegra 4-powered Shield gaming handheld, we're about due an updated model, and a new NVIDIA gadget passing through the FCC certainly seems to fit the bill. Dubbed the "P2570" (the OG Shield was P2450), the new device sure looks like a new version of the chipmaker's standalone gaming device.

Discounting the possibility that it's just a standalone game controller of some sort, the device seems to sport a slightly tweaked, curvier design, but with similar NVIDIA branding.

It's difficult to discern any info from FCC drawings alone, though it's easy to speculate that an updated Shield might come with NVIDIA's latest Tegra K1 chip, and most likely a bump in display resolution from the original's 720p panel.
