The NVIDIA Shield 2 is nearing launch as we all know. And a new report from BBC has confirmed today that the device will indeed be featuring the Tegra K1 chipset which was announced earlier this year. The report simply mentions this device as an upcoming gaming console from NVIDIA, but it doesn’t take much effort to connect the dots from there. Needless to say, the device will be running Android out of the box and will be able to access the vast library of titles from the Play Store.
It is believed that the device will also be able to run PC titles when connected to a computer featuring a supported NVIDIA GPU. Naturally, NVIDIA is also expected to support streaming of games to televisions (possibly using Miracast).
NVIDIA is also rumored to be launching the Shield Tablet, so we have plenty to look forward to. At the moment, the release timeframe of this console is unknown, but we don’t think NVIDIA will make us wait too long.
