NVIDIA's Project SHIELD Is A New Gaming Portable

Posted January 7, 2013 - By Adam Rosenberg

Meet Project SHIELD, NVIDIA's first crack at portable gaming. The handheld device comes equipped with the company's just-announced Tegra 4 GPU, said to offer six times the graphical output of the current-gen Tegra 3 chip. In addition to supporting an assortment of Android games and Google Play titles, Project SHIELD also supports Steam's Big Picture Mode and can stream games from any PC fitted with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU.

As you can see, the gaming portable is essentially a current-gen-styled gamepad with a tiny, 5-inch, 720p flip-up screen attached to it. With built-in speakers and integrated Wi-Fi, NVIDIA aims to offer a completely standalone, portable gaming experience. Hawken comes up several times in the press release as a game that Project SHIELD can run, though there's no official word yet on which games you can expect at launch and when the device will be released.

Head over to NVIDIA's official Project SHIELD product page for more info.
