Delivering a balance of power, portability, and performance, the NVIDIA 8" SHIELD 16GB Tablet K1 features an NVIDIA Tegra K1 chipset that taps into the same NVIDIA Kepler architecture that drives most gaming PCs. With a custom-engineered thermal system, the SHIELD Tablet K1 harnesses the full power of the Tegra K1's performance. With 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 + LE (Smart Ready), you'll be able to connect wirelessly to the Internet as well as to peripherals and accessories.
Connect your SHIELD Tablet K1 to GeForce Now and stream a library of popular PC games at up to 1080p at 60 fps. Members can instantly stream more than 50 popular PC games and purchase new releases from the online store (subscription is required and sold separately). You can also seamlessly record your gaming moments or stream your game action to Twitch with NVIDIA ShadowPlay.
The SHIELD Tablet K1 has an 8" multi-touch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 1920 x 1200 native resolution. You can take advantage of the screen by starting up the NVIDIA SHIELD Hub, which gives you one-touch access to over 200 SHIELD-optimized game titles. You'll also have full access to all of your favorite apps from Google Play.
Aspiring artists designing the next game or fan art can use a GPU-accelerated NVIDIA DirectStylus 2 (sold separately) to capture the attitude of every stroke. Take notes with the integrated apps and handwriting recognition or get creative with the NVIDIA Dabbler app's hyper-realistic watercolor and 3D Paint oil painting.
Please note that the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 does not come with an AC adapter or a micro-USB cable. You will need to provide your own.
Please note that the tablet may come with Android 5.0 Lollipop. You will be able to update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow via an over-the-air (OTA) update.
