It looks like NVIDIA’s upcoming Shield game console that is tipped to roll out later this May is about to make more headway in the news – especially when you take into consideration how the hardware has already gone through the motions over at the FCC – which is essential before it hits store shelves, of course. After all, the FCC website points to the device from NVIDIA as a “Complex Set-Top Box”.
Apparently, should this happen to be the NVIDIA Shield device (because it would be rather difficult to figure out whether it could be anything else at this point in time, really), then here are some of the hardware details that you might want to take note of. Sporting a model number of P2571 NVIDIA’s first video game console will run on an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor, carry 3GB RAM, accompanied by 16GB of internal memory, has 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, Gigabit Ethernet support, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a micro USB port, an IR port, and Google’s Android TV software as the mobile operating system of choice.
Apart from that, this upcoming console is also full well capable of handling the likes of 4K video and 7.1 channel audio, as it is accompanied by a wireless game controller, and will carry a sticker price tag of $199. By the time it arrives, NVIDIA will also offer deliver other kinds of accessories such as a Bluetooth remote control and additional game controllers.
