NVidia’s Tegra 4 and Project Shield Coming in Q2 This Year
Nvidia is without a doubt one of the most active players on the market right now, oriented towards releasing hardware components for mobile devices as well as stand-alone solutions to cover the consumer’s needs. For this year some of the highest expectations come from NVidia.
Though the Tegra 3 chipset hasn’t had the success that was initially predicted, the next generation components will bring what all the previous generations lacked, in terms of speed and reliability. With Tegra 3 the manufacturer never succeeded in offering not the best performance and not in terms of battery life. Luckily NVidia has thrown a new player into the game that promises to change everything. Tegra 4 came rather unexpected and wasn’t advertised as the previous gen, only to be considered a let-down in the end. Manufacturers will be able to integrate this new chip in their devices starting this year.
As for the game console everyone’s been talking about – Project Shield not only demos the capabilities of the NVidia Tegra 4, but also sets a new standard in mobile gaming, with the best quality graphics and the ability to stream from PC. Though it will not be cheap and it requires an NVidia card of the latest gen on the PC for game streaming, the console has gathered a large community of fans and people looking to pick it up as soon as it becomes available. The console will be, as the chipset, available starting Q2 of this year, according to the official statements.
