The Rumoured NVIDIA SHIELD 2 Hardware Specs Include A Whole Lot Of Awesomeness
NVIDIA has been keeping itself busy over the last few months by supporting the SHIELD with frequent software updates that have brought loads of new features and even Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the world’s most powerful handheld gaming system. Thankfully, all of that time spent coding hasn’t prevented the company from working on a sequel to the SHIELD and while it still hasn’t been officially announced, a recent AnTuTu benchmark report reveals some of the hardware specs we can expect once it finally arrives.
According to the report, the second-generation NVIDIA SHIELD will be powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Tegra K1 processor and NVIDIA’s GeForce (Kepler graphics) GPU. For good measure, NVIDIA has also thrown in 4GB worth of RAM. With a 1.9GHz Tegra 4 and 2GB of RAM, the original SHIELD is no slouch when it comes to performance, but if these rumored specs hold true, it won’t be nearly as powerful as its successor is going to be.
Other SHIELD 2 hardware specs revealed in the benchmark report include a 1440 x 810 display, 16GB of internal storage and a 0.3 megapixel camera. For software, AnTuTu lists the device as running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Of course it is important to keep in mind that nothing is official yet and all of these rumored specs could change by the time NVIDIA does announce the device, but if everything manages to remain unchanged, it looks like the SHIELD 2 will make for an excellent follow up handheld.
