News Nvidia announces the new Shield, a 4K Android-TV Console


Tonight at a press conference scheduled to coincide with GDC 2015, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang annouced the latest addition to its Shield line of products. Called simply "Shield," Nvidia's new device is a set-top box powered by Nvidia's Tegra X1, using Google's Android OS and the search giant's new TV platform, which debuted at this year's CES. Shield supports 4k content encoded with h.265, and can stream local content from Nvidia-powered PCs at 1080p60. Shield also supports the company's game-streaming initiative, Grid.

$200. It can play Crysis 3 natively. Probably downscaled in terms of graphical fidelity, but still pretty awesome. Borderlands TPS is also ported to android.
There are loads of these coming up, but this seems like one of the more premium options.
