NVIDIA updates original SHIELD Tablet with Vulkan, enhancements

NVIDIA updates original SHIELD Tablet with Vulkan, enhancements

Although NVIDIA isn't exactly a prolific Android device maker, it has largely been regarded by some as a good Android citizen, by providing a nearly vanilla Android experience and timely updates that sometimes rivals Nexus devices. The past months, it has also poised itself as a strong advocate of Vulkan, the API that will eventually replace OpenGL. NVIDIA has rolled out updates to both the SHIELD Android TV console and the SHIELD Tablet K1 adding that feature and now it is doing the same for the original SHIELD Tablet.

Last Friday NVIDIA made their big announcement, which we all knew was the GTX 1080 and 1070. Their performance charts and explanations of the new technologies being used were very interesting, but one little detail left many people confused. It was when they announced the Founder's Edition of the cards. Well now that the dust has settled from the event, it's time to clarify once and for all, just what makes a card a "Founder's Edition."

NVIDIA Ansel revolutionizes in-game photography

NVIDIA Ansel revolutionizes in-game photography

When NVIDIA launched GeForce Experience a few years back, it changed the way we were able to record gameplay. No longer did we need to use some clunky, bloated program like FRAPS to capture our videos. Shadowplay took care of all of that for us, and it’s been wonderful. Well last night NVIDIA announced that they would be revolutionizing the way we take screenshots. And it’s a big deal.

NVIDIA, Samsung lay down arms, settle all patent squabbles

NVIDIA, Samsung lay down arms, settle all patent squabbles

As the song goes, let there be peace on Earth. Or at least in the mobile graphics market. Happily, that seems to be the case at least between NVIDIA and Samsung, who have finally decided to settle their differences outside of court. After more than a year of back and forth mudslinging and suits and countersuits, the two have agreed to a settlement that, among other things, involve a small amount of cross-licensing. Money might have been involved, too, but of course they're not going to say that.

Tegra K1 JXD S192 “retro” gaming tablet goes on pre-order

Tegra K1 JXD S192 “retro” gaming tablet goes on pre-order

"Gaming tablet". Now that's one we haven't heard in quite a while. With a few exceptions, like Archos' now silent GamePad, or Acer's odd-looking Predator, or NVIDIA's stylus-less SHIELD Tablet K1, most tablets do not usually advertise game-ability. Multimedia and processing power, sure, but nothing close to gaming on big displays. JXD, however, isn't giving up the fight just yet. The same Chinese OEM who brought us a PSP-alike Android tablet is now putting up the JXD S192 on pre-order, promising the power of NVIDIA's Tegra K1 chip in a different, unique, and more odd-looking package.

Super Meat Boy launches on NVIDIA Shield Android TV

Super Meat Boy launches on NVIDIA Shield Android TV

Games like Dark Souls are known for their ability to frustrate players with sheer difficulty, and unexpected death traps. While that's a big deal now, back in the NES era, games like that were somewhat commonplace. A few years ago one developer decided to recapture the insane difficulty of 90's games, and gave birth to Super Meat Boy. And just when you thought that game had made it to every available platform, it makes its way to yet another.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 update brings in Vulkan, fixes galore

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 update brings in Vulkan, fixes galore

The SHIELD Tablet K1 may just be a more affordable, stylus-less version of the original SHIELD Tablet, but that doesn't make it a has-been in any way. In typical NVIDIA "good Android citizen" image, the tablet is getting a new update, not to Android N preview of course, but at least some parts of it. In particular, NVIDIA is rolling out support for the fledgling Vulkan API just as it did with the SHIELD Android TV console last February. The update also brings a ton of fixes to the gaming tablet.
