New Nvidia Shield TV Pro: the perfect Android TV to play

Nvidia has launched a new video player and game console in the cloud, the Nvidia Shield TV Pro, which can already be seen on Amazon.

Of the many ways to use Android, one of the most valuable is taking lately on Android TV, which after a period in which it passed without penalty or glory with few exceptions takes force at the idea of ​​using streaming apps and play On TV.

And it is precisely at this last point that Nvidia focuses with its Shield TV, of which we now know the new model, the Nvidia Shield TV Pro .

New processor and more power

This new device uses the latest Nvidia processor, the Tegra X1 +. In theory it is 25% faster than the previous generation, which is what devices like the Nintendo Switch use.

In addition to managing content in 4K, this Android TV can rescale HD videos to have a better definition, something it will do with the help of artificial intelligence.

We will have support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos Sound. We will have 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory available.

Gforce Now is still present

One of the biggest differences of this device with similar ones is the Nvidia cloud game system, Gforce Now. With the Shield TV Pro we can use it, with the control knobs that we can buy separately.

In addition, we will have Android TV and the advantages of Google apps, such as the assistant, which we can invoke from the remote.

Rumors pointed to a renewed Nvidia player with Android TV , and so it was: the device appeared by surprise in the Amazon store in the United States. Intentional or not it was a mistake that the company did not take long to solve; leaving behind captures and technical data that XDA Developers managed to save for posterity .

As captured on the Amazon page, the essence of the new Nvidia Shield TV Pro remains intact as it hardly changes the hardware: the player offers 3 GB of RAM, includes 16 GB of storage, has two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, network connection via RJ45 or WiFi cable and also has Bluetooth. The main improvements are two:

  • New NVIDIA Tegra X1 + processor with 25% more processing power than the previous generation. It is the same processor of the Nintendo Switch.
  • The control is renewed incorporating more control buttons , it is larger and changes the button battery for two AAA batteries. It is not rechargeable, but at least that type of battery is more common. In addition, it now includes an infrared transmitter to control other devices (TV, speakers …).

The main software improvement is that the Nvidia Shield TV Pro is compatible with Dolby Vision HDR , a software item that should improve the playback of compatible multimedia content.

The player has been removed from the presale, but not before leaving the date of availability and price: the Nvidia Shield TV Pro would be presented on October 28 at a price of $ 199 . Hopefully, Nvidia will sell the device globally since it has been so far. We ignore if there will be a special pack for games with the physical control included, also if the brand has renewed this accessory.
