NVIDIA reportedly readying Tegra K1-powered Shield tablet

NVIDIA reportedly readying Tegra K1-powered Shield tablet

In addition to releasing a new version of the Shield gaming console, NVIDIA may also soon offer up a tablet counterpart, too. Details making the rounds indicate said tablet could be powered by a Tegra K1 processor and feature a 7.9-inch 2048 x 1536 resolution display. Other specs figure to include Android 4.4 KitKat and 2GB RAM; we would expect nothing but high-end stuff for NVIDIA’s first crack at a homegrown tablet.

If NVIDIA does keep the Shield branding with the tablet then we might look for them to position it around gaming and entertainment. Specifically, it could be sold as a flat panel gaming console that limelights as a tablet. According to details obtained by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) website, it’s also possible the device is a hybrid tablet/notebook or convertible product.
