Performance Preview: NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, Fastest Android Tablet Available

Last week, NVIDIA officially announced the SHIELD tablet (powered by the Tegra K1 SoC) and its companion SHIELD wireless controller. To quickly recap, the SHIELD tablet’s specifications include NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC (clocked at up to 2.2GHz), paired to 2GB of RAM and an 8”, full-HD IPS display, with a native resolution of 1920x1200. There are also a pair of 5MP cameras on the SHIELD tablet (front and rear), 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 MIMO WiFi configuration, GPS, a 9-axis motion sensor, and Bluetooth 4.0 LE.

A few days after the initial announcement was made, we got our hands on a SHIELD tablet, wireless controller, and cover. We’re still working (and playing) with the SHIELD tablet, and will be posting up some more information about its gaming prowess in the days ahead, but in the meantime, we thought you’d all like to take to see just how the device performs...

Surely it has amazing performance, but why is it only $200. Is there something wrong with it or is just an amazing deal? Seems too good to be true. :/

So is "SHIELD" going to become ubiquitous with "gaming tablet" Is that the sole purpose for these? Poor handhelds are going to have a HARD time when PC games start invading that console market D:

nfs3freak 4 months ago I never really cared for a tablet but this is pretty cool regarding its performance. Down the road, unless a competitor comes out that has equal performance and better pricing, maybe I'll pick this up when it's dropped a bit in price.

I'm actually incredibly impressed. I don't know if I'd really put it to use like I would have to for it to be worth it, but it's very impressive.
