NVIDIA Shield 2 In The Works With A Next-Gen Tegra Heart

/ 3 years ago

Nvidia Q1

NVIDIA employees filled Montreal Marriott’s Salle de Bal 1,000-person capacity basement ballroom late last week, where Huang announced a hat-trick of major news for the company: Gamestream, G-Sync, and the new GTX 780 Ti GPU, to raucous applause. The highlight of the three, and the one that Huang emphasized by flying in a trio of game industry legends, is G-Sync. The module will arrive built into gaming monitors starting early next year, and it aims to solve the issues of tearing, stutter, and lag.

The aforementioned trio of legends, Oculus’ John Carmack, Epic’s Tim Sweeney, and EA DICE’s Johan Andersson, vouched for G-Sync, but Endgadget were able to have Huang for a quick followup interview. Beyond discussing last week’s big announcements, Huang spoke to Project Logan, aka: the next Tegra chip and NVIDIA Shield 2, which may be coming sooner than we think. Huang told us he’d love to see Logan powering the next version of Shield as representative hardware ahead of anything else.

Thank you Endgadget for providing us with this information.

    And I wasn’t even aware that original Shield had been released. It’s not surprising seeing I take absolutely no interest in any gaming device that isn’t a proper PC.
