This year’s hottest gaming portable sheds the “project” moniker and officially becomes NVIDIA® SHIELD™!

Investing the same level of passion, dedication, and detail as they do with their GeForce GTX products, NVIDIA has delivered an unparalleled gaming experience with SHIELD. SHIELD brings the best parts of gaming to your fingertips: NVIDIA® Tegra® 4 - the world’s fastest mobile processor, intuitive, comfortable controls, and premium sound. It’s not just the most powerful gaming portable, it’s the most powerful Android™ device ever created.

SHIELD runs pure Android with the latest version of the Android Jelly Bean OS. It’s also powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor, clocked up to 1.9Ghz, and paired with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage (expandable to 64 GB more with a microSD card slot). The 5-inch 720p HD retinal touchscreen serves up high-resolution eye candy, while the integrated stereo bass reflex speakers pump out loud audio. And a robust battery means you’ll enjoy a whole lot more gaming, videos, music, and web browsing.

NVIDIA has preloaded SHIELD with two awesome Android games—Sonic 4 Episode II THD and Expendable: Rearmed. Of course, you can download tons of Tegra-enhanced games through NVIDIA TegraZone™. And, for all you PC gamers out there, SHIELD will connect to your GeForce® GTX-powered desktop to stream your PC games through our game speed Wi-Fi technology. PC streaming will initially launch as a BETA feature with support for a number of top Steam games, and owners will receive a free software update once the official release is available.

SHIELD is currently only available to U.S. and Canadian residents.
