Nvidia has started the countdown for a new Shield TV Box featuring a new Tegra X1 T214 processor seen on the Nintendo Switch Lite.
We may see Nvidia releasing their new Shield TV Box with a Tegra X1 214 processor and Android 9.0 in the next CES event in January.
- The new Nvidia Shield TV has appeared on the FCC listing for another upgrade to the critically acclaimed Android TV.
- The FCC docs mention the product as the “NVIDIA Corporation SHIELD Android TV Game Console P3430.”
- The new shield tv is expected to arrive with a Tegra X1 T214 processor, the same being used in the Nintendo Switch Lite and the improved SKU of the classic Switch.
- Nvidia hasn’t made any major changes to the Tegra X1, but still, Nintendo chose it for the Nintendo Switch, courtesy of the custom Maxwell GPU.
- According to the experts, the design improvements in the chip will result in higher clock speeds and lower temperature.
- The device, codenamed “mdarcy”, is expected to run on the Android 9 Pie out of the box.
- The previous release history suggests a late 2019 release of the Shield TV, but chances of an early 2020 release are higher.
- While the Shield is an Android TV box, one of its primary reasons for being is to push Nvidia’s GeForce Now game streaming service.
