When NVIDIA announced the Tegra X1 chipset earlier this year, they caught our attention due to the processor insane amount of power. So far the chip has been used in NVIDIA’s Shield Android TV, the upcoming Pixel C tablet from Google, and also the Jetson TX1 development board. However now it seems that this processor could be making it’s way to the mobile space with NVIDIA’s next Shield tablet.
A new entry over on GFX Bench shows an 8″, 1080p tablet powered by the Tegra X1 under the name “NVIDIA Shield Tablet X1”. It also packs 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built in storage. Android Marshmallow is also found on board. While this listing doesn’t tell us anything about when we an expect to see this tablet, it does tell us that it is indeed coming and we’re nothing short of excited to see it.
The NVIDIA Shield Tablet X1 has been speculated since the release of the refresh NVIDIA Shield Tablet released last week under the name NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1.
