Nvidia Shield Drops Price Before Release
The NVIDIA Shield received a welcomed price drop just days before it’s scheduled launch. With the $50 price cut, it now comes in at $299.99(USD). The portable Android gaming device is making a attempt to break into the handheld gaming market where the Nintendo 3DS ($199.99) and the PlayStation Vita ($249.99) call home. It’s a tough market but NVIDIA believes the features included with the Shield will make it stand out. Here are just a few of the specs
- -5” Multi Touch 1280x720 display
- -Built in Stereo speakers and mic
- -Micro HDMI and Micro USB
- -Internal memory of 16gb expandable using Micro SD up to 64gb
- -Utilizing the new Tegra 4 CPU
- -Console quality controller
- -Built in Wireless 802.11n
Besides doing what any other Android device is capable of doing, one of the coolest features is the ability to stream games from your PC using the GeForce Experience software. If using a compatible GeForce 650 or higher GPU, you can stream games like Borderlands 2, Dishonored and Metro: Last Light to name a few.

Let’s get the hard data out of the way first: 480 CUDA cores, 700 MHz graphics and 1,401MHz processor clock speeds, plus 1.5GB of onboard GDDR5 memory running at 1,848MHz (for a 3.7GHz effective data rate). Those are the specs upon which Fermi is built, and those are the numbers that will seek to justify a $499 price tag and a spectacular 250W TDP.
