NVIDIA’s “The Shield”  ,as a handy Android gaming-system,has been performing quite well   in the market and now it is moving on to include another one very soon. This forthcoming device will supposedly be called the NVIDIA Shield tablet and will attach the company’s powerful Tegra K1 processor with itself. Gamestream will provide support so it will deal with PC games as well.

The distinction between the existing Shield device and the future Shield Tablet is, the physical controls attached to a 5 inch touch-screen display in existing one. The latter is simply a tablet even though there is no Intel on what its display size will be.

The newly reported NVIDIA Mocha tablet,one with a 7.9-inch and  a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels display (which uses unique clock speed of 2.1 GHz  available in  Tegra K1 processor )could possibly be the NVIDIA Shield tablet. It is likely to be the Shield branding on this device as its hardware-specifications seems like one of a gaming system.


NVIDIA‘s existing tablet is the Tegra Note 7 which uses a Tegra 4 CPU. It has a 7-inch display and a budget of $199. It’s not yet confirmed openly by the company rather its partners such as EVGA and ZOTAC are selling the device under different brand names.

The Tegra Note 7 couldn’t possibly be the Shield tablet that the company is aiming to release.Reasonfor the same is, it is not able to hold up the Gamestream aspects. For Gamestream to work it requires access to 5 GHz Wi-Fi network, which Tegra Note 7 can not do.

The benchmark results propose the idea that the Mocha will be using the influential Tegra K1 processor and that it will sport a 7-inch display with 2048×1536 pixels resolution. It is loaded with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space. The Tegra K1 chip will have four Cortex-A15 cores bragging  a maximum clock speed of 2.1 GHz.

Even if consumers have been living their games on tablets for quite some time now, NVIDIA desires to alter this by offering a little unique. The key selling point in Shield tablet is its capability to stream PC games. No doubt in the fact that assured requirements must be convinced for example, having a desktop or a laptop with the right hardware.

The other specifications like:

1)GPU: Notebook (select Kepler-based GTX 600M ,GeForce GTX 800M, GTX 700M and),Desktop ( GeForce GTX 650 or higher GPU),

2)CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8 GHz orIntel Core i3-2100 3.1GHz or  higher

3)  System Memory:  It has to be 4 GB +

4)  Software: It will showcase GeForce Experience application and latest GeForce drivers

5) OS: Windows 7 or Windows 8

6)Routers: 802.11a/g router (minimum). 802.11n dual band router (recommended)

Having such hardware requirementsmet, regular gamers will be able to stream PC titles such as DOTA 2 , League of Legends and World of Warcraft
