Shield 2 may launch with next-gen Tegra Logan
Nvidia spent most of last weekend making a trio of announcements at their event in Montreal – Gamestream, G-Sync, and the new GTX 780 ti GPU. You can read our roundup of the event and the new announcements here.
As we mentioned in our roundup, Nvidia GameStream is due to launch on October 28th. GameStream combines the high performance of GeForce GTX graphics cards with advanced Wi-Fi to deliver low-latency portable gaming.
Jen-Hsun Huang, Nvidia’s CEO, was heard talking to media about his company working on another version of Shield. The follow-up to the Shield portable gaming system could possibly be released next year with a next-gen Tegra Chip, Project Logan (Kepler on mobile).
Nvidia wants to work with Android closely to make it a more viable gaming platform. Jen-Hsun said this in an interview with Engadget:
Android is such an important platform… because we want to do for Android what GeForce did for PC’s. What GeForce did to PC’s is it took an open-platform Personal computing device and turned it into a gaming platform.
It looks like Nvidia may have a huge year in 2014 and that may include updating Shield rather quickly. Are you excited for a next-gen Shield?
