It has been a while since NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang indicated the company was going to produce a successor to their NVIDIA Shield gaming device. The time for a public announcement must be getting close judging by the information starting to leak out about the NVIDIA Shield 2. In late April we saw the device surface in the AnTuTu Benchmark site with a Tegra K1 processor and 4GB of RAM onboard. Now, a device from NVIDIA has surfaced in the FCC database that appears to be the Shield 2.
The new device, unsurprisingly, is very close to the same form factor as the original Shield. It does appear to be slightly narrower and the curves are enhanced just a bit. The new model number is P2570 versus the existing unit’s model number of P2450, so it appears to be part of the same family of devices. It is possible this new entry is just a variant of the original Shield, but with E3 coming up next week, the timing seems right for NVIDIA to take the wraps off the next generation of their Shield gaming device.
