NVIDIA Shows Off Project Shield

NVIDIA has announced the Project Shield, a portable game console powered by NVIDIA’s new Tegra 4 chip (quad core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU and 72 custom GPU cores).

Created with the philosophy that gaming should be open and flexible, Project Shield flawlessly plays both Android and PC titles. As a pure Android device, it gives access to any game on Google Play. As a wireless receiver and controller, it can stream games from a PC powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, accessing titles on its STEAM game library from anywhere in the home.

The portable console provides a full console-grade controller with two joysticks, a D-pad, ABXY buttons, left/right bumpers, left/right analog triggers, Start/Back/Home/Volume buttons, and a multi-function NVIDIA/Power button. A lid flips up on the top to reveal an integrated 5-inch (1280x720) HD touchscreen display.

Shield is expected to ship in Q2 of 2013. It will first launch in the US and Canada, with a worldwide rollout to follow.
