Nvidia Shield 2 Portable Turns Up In South Korea
The month of March saw to rumors that told us about a successor to Nvidia Shield, the company’s portable gaming tablet. Today, the device has appeared at South Korea’s equivalent of the FCC.
The news adds credence to last month’s rumors and also means that we might see the device release sooner than expected. Unfortunately, the filing contained no information on the specifications of the new Shield portable, or even hints to any new features it would be boasting.
Nvidia has probably been working furiously on improving the original Shield design. The company is presumed to be introducing a Tegra X1 chip to the Shield 2, with its 256 Maxwell cores and full capabilities of supporting DirectX 12. Without a doubt, the new Shield portable should offer better performance and processing power which will easily overwhelm gaming enthusiasts.
According to another sighting last month, the new Shield is said to be running Android Version 5.0. It is 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi capability, and will be able to use A, B, G, N, and AC bands – the original SHIELD was not equipped with AC Wi-Fi.
Nvidia could be making an official announcement soon, seeing how this is the second time that the new Shield has popped up just one month after the first listing.
