Nvidia is soon to release a new Android powered gaming system.
The technology company, which manufactures GPUs, otherwise known as graphics processing units, is producing a five-inch handheld portable gaming system with the code-name "Project Shield". This new touch screen was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and is mighty competition for gaming systems like Nintendo 3Ds. The new controller offers users the ability to stream games that have already been loaded on a Windows PC based on gamers sharing the same Wi-Fi router and the computer having the latest Nvidia graphics processor.
The new portable gaming system is powered by Android's Jelly Bean software, which is the fastest and smoothest version. Also included are 5 to 10 hour rechargeable batteries and a set of game controls. The speakers are said to be above average with a clearer screen, and a representative from Nvidia said the system will be able to run anything which is downloaded from Google Play. The end name for this device has not been released, and the price and how much storage space it will contain also remains a mystery. More information should be available closer to the expected launch date sometime in spring. In other recent news, Nvidia has been busy collaborating with cloud gaming companies to deliver games to global companies.
