Equipped with a Kepler architecture-based, 192-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 super chip, the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet is finally available to own starting at $299.
Paired with its ultra low-latency WiFi Direct NVIDIA SHIELD Controller, the next-gen gaming tablet delivers power, performance and the freedom to enjoy your favorite Android and PC games how and where you want.
Here is a look at what critics are saying about the new NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet.
• AnandTech: "It’s incredibly important to get the controller right for gaming devices, and NVIDIA has nailed it."
• Android Central: "There's no doubt that NVIDIA has done a whole lot right with its second tablet effort. The Shield Tablet takes the gaming DNA that kicked off with the Shield Portable and makes it dramatically more accessible by putting it in a device that's a great fit even for non-gamers."
• Android Police: "To me, SHIELD Tablet is the culmination of what NVIDIA has learned from its short time making Android devices. The company has clearly gained quite a bit of knowledge from SHIELD Portable and Tegra Note 7, and this is the result."
• Droid Life: "To me, NVIDIA priced the SHIELD Tablet and SHIELD Controller as 'affordable luxury' devices, meaning that you can get an insanely premium experience for the same price you would have with a watered-down Android experience from a competitor device."
• GameSpot: "But, if you're interested in what the future of gaming might look like, Shield Tablet is perhaps the best glimpse we've had of it so far."
• Gizmodo: "A gaming beast, but so much more."
• Laptop Magazine: "Based on my testing, the company has found a way to harness the Tegra K1's muscle to take mobile gaming to the next level."
• Maximum PC: "The best gaming tablet in town."
• SlashGear: "The ability to seamlessly connect with your PC wirelessly coupled with a robust, high quality build and a dedicated software support system from NVIDIA means the SHIELD Tablet is an undeniable winner."
• TechRadar: "The Shield tablet definitely hits a niche. It might not have broad appeal, but for the gamers, it's the only choice out there if you want a solid gaming tablet."
