NVIDIA SHIELD 8" Tablet & Wireless Controller


Delivering a balance of power, portability, and performance, the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet features an NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processor that taps into the same NVIDIA Kepler architecture that drives most gaming PCs. With a custom-engineered thermal system, the SHIELD tablet harnesses the full power of the Tegra K1's performance. Add 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, and you'll be able to connect wirelessly to the Internet as well as to peripherals and accessories. Stream games from your GeForce GTX-powered PC and play them on the SHIELD tablet with NVIDIA GameStream technology. You can also record your gaming moments seamlessly or stream your game action to Twitch as you play with NVIDIA ShadowPlay.

If you prefer to use the screen on the SHIELD tablet, you can utilize the 8" capacitive touchscreen with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 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 more than 200 SHIELD-optimized game titles. That's on top of your favorite apps from Google Play, including Netflix, Pandora, and more.

For a more tactile feel, you can purchase the NVIDIA SHIELD wireless controller to fulfill your need for a traditional controller. The NVIDIA SHIELD wireless controller connects to the SHIELD tablet via Wi-Fi Direct and has tactile buttons and analog sticks, as well as a touchpad and dedicated Android buttons to facilitate navigation between menus. There's also an audio jack for a headset, as well as a built-in microphone for voice commands. When you're running low on battery power, you can recharge it via the included charging cable.
