Making its debut at CES 2017, Nvidia’s 2017 Shield TV is an Nvidia-powered, Android-based TV hub/console that brings the power of Android TV, PC gaming and streaming content to your living room.
The 2017 model is similar to the previous one in that the Nvidia Tegra X1 chip remains. It’s a powerful SoC by mobile standards and is known for its graphical prowess. The remote and controller have been redesigned, but the biggest update is one that happened behind the scenes.
With an Nvidia Shield TV, you can play traditional Android games as well as PC games on your TV with the bundled controller. More on that later.
