Device Review: Nvidia SHIELD Tablet

shieldtabletreview

A little over a year ago, Nvidia decided to change the game–literally. The Nvidia SHIELD Portable was announced, released, and was very well received. Here we are, shortly following the announcement of a new, and epic, generation of mobile device processors, and Nvidia has officially released their next SHIELD installment, the Nvidia SHIELD Tablet.

One of the chief complaints we saw with the original SHIELD Portable was the screen size and resolution. A 5” screen with 720p resolution was usable for most tasks, but could get to be a bit of a strain on the eyes after a while. Nvidia has attempted to address this with an 8”, 1920 x 1200 display (which is, by the way, quite nice).

NVIDIA Receives a Positive One Finger Salute from Linus for Doing Things Right

seal

Many of you may recall that back in June of 2012, we talked about how NVIDIA was given a rather direct message courtesy of none other than Dr. Linus Torvalds himself. Basically, the article written by XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler went on about the closed nature of both NVIDIA and Qualcomm as chipset manufacturers, and how it was shameful and really inexplicable how two companies with such closed minded ideals could possibly be the paramount chipset providers for a large number of Android device manufacturers. Adam went on to wrap up the article with a brief (but very powerful) video on what the father of the Linux kernel thought about their lack of support for the open source world. Needless to say, sh. . . READ ON »

Preliminary Tegra K1 Benchmarks Emerge, K1 Packing a KO Punch!

benches

About a week ago, we talked about Nvidia’s Tegra K1 announcement and what it could mean for the future of mobile gaming. Then, our own XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan got a hands-on look at the chipset and its reference platform, and he took a look at some of what it can do. The chip, which merges Nvidia’s GeForce architecture with their mobile line, is based on the same Kepler architecture that powers their desktop GPUs.

Despite of all of this, one question still remained: Just how fast will this thing actually be? We all knew it was poised to be near or at the top of the pack. After all, it’s the first in a new generation of high-end mobile SoCs. And on top of that, Nvidia has made some specta. . . READ ON »

Nvidia Tegra K1 Hands On at CES 2014 – XDA Developer TV

nvidiabooth

Nvidia has officially brought an end to the “cores race” in two ways with the release of the Tegra K1. By releasing a device with “192 cores,” Nvidia not only wins in the marketing game, but they also make the numbers game a joke. Ultimately, it’s not about the number of cores. Rather, it’s about the power of the processor. But marketing numbers aside, the Tegra K1 is very powerful.

XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site at International CES 2014 and got a chance to catch a demonstration of the Tegra K1’s power. Jordan sat down and talked with the folks at Nvidia. And in this video, we get to see the power of the K1 through various applications on the Nvida Tegra K1 ref. . . READ ON »

Nvidia Unveils Kepler-Based Tegra K1 with 192 CUDA Cores and Optional 64-Bit Denver Processor!

tegra-k1-chipshot

We’ve been talking a lot about Android-powered gaming devices recently. Heck, we even gave them a place here on the XDA forums not too long ago. All of this is possible thanks to the increasingly powerful Systems-on-a-Chip in modern Android-powered devices. Now, Nvidia wishes to up the ante in the low-power SoC world with its Kepler-based Tegra K1 SoC.

New Lineage

The K1 breaks away from previous Tegra devices by merging Nvidia’s GeForce architecture with its mobile architecture. The company accomplishes this by making the K1 (previously codenamed Project Logan) the first mobile chip based on their Kepler architecture rather than the previous GeForce ULP.

For those who have been keeping up w. . . READ ON »
