Last week we saw our first look at NVIDIA’s rumored SHIELD tablet from Evleaks. Today though, NVIDIA is making it official announcing the tablet fully. The tablet packs a strong punch and the added controller only makes things better. The SHIELD family now contains the SHIELD Tablet, SHIELD Controller, and last year’s SHIELD, now known as the SHIELD Portable.
The SHIELD tablet uses an 8-inch display powered by a Tegra K1 processor and massive dual front-facing speakers to create an immersive gaming experience. This is further extended with the addition of the SHIELD controller, which connects via WiFi direct, allows for a better gaming experience. The SHIELD controller is priced at $59 while the tablet is priced at $299 for the base model. Adding LTE jumps the price $100. The full specs for the device are down below.
