NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 gets “professional audio” support

NVIDIA has traditionally been seen as a "good citizen" when it comes to the speed and frequency of rolling out Android updates and this latest one cements that image. No, there isn't a new Android version released (unless you count the new Android N Preview, but that's another story).

Colorful, not the adjective but the name of that manufacturer, has one such motherboard that is practically half made up of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070.

Generally, serious computing power is traded for sleek style. Even in the highest-end iMac, you'll only find a mobile GPU to power your graphics. This is fine for most applications, but not for gaming. But don't worry, one company is building an all-in-one that's aimed directly at gamers.
