NVIDIA GeForce NOW will soon be streaming to Android TVs

Game streaming news continues to flow especially during these days when the console hardware market seems to be waiting with bated breath for the next big thing. The promise of universal gaming is strong but its current implementations are not that convincing since you're limited by what devices or specific models are officially supported. NVIDIA might be preparing to expand the coverage of GeForce NOW that could give it an ironic advantage over Stadia on Google's own turf.

Full Android TV Chromecast dongle may finally threaten Amazon Fire TV stick

A rumor today suggests that Google may finally have an answer for the Amazon Fire TV Stick and other dongle-like smart TV platforms. This device would be a follow-up to the Google Chromecast Ultra, a relatively small device that plugs into an HDMI port at the back of a television and requires its own power source - generally provided by a power cord also included in the box. That device does not run Android TV - this new device might.

GeForce NOW lets Cyberpunk 2077 stream to Mac and Android on launch day

Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on an Apple computer on launch day - despite its complete lack of compatibility with macOS (or Mac OS, if you prefer).

Cyberpunk 2077 is also supposed to be released with Google Stadia, but no release date has yet been revealed.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Remote coming in 2020 but old model already gone

New NVIDIA SHIELD Remote coming in 2020 but old model already gone

It isn't uncommon for companies, especially those with fewer resources to devote to multiple generations of products, to discontinue an old model once a new one becomes available. The common practice, however, is to make sure that the new one is really available to consumers before yanking the old one out of the picture. Whether by mistake or by design, that isn't the case of NVIDIA's new SHIELD Remote and anyone who needs to buy one will have to wait for the new Remote to start shipping in about two months' time.

SHIELD TV Remote button for Netflix isn’t just for Netflix anymore

NVIDIA shook things up a bit when it launched its new SHIELD TV products. The Pro model, while looking exactly the same, got a much-needed spec bump while the non-Pro version sported a new and curious tubular design. Both, however, shared one thing in common beyond the Tegra X1 chip. Both had a redesigned and more powerful remote control that may have just gotten more useful thanks to a third-party button remapping app.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 2019 revealed in Amazon leak

Amazon made a mistake in listing the NVIDIA SHIELD reboot for the year 2019 today. Apparently the Android TV device was not yet meant for this world, as it's been once-again de-listed as quickly as it appeared. The TV set was shown available on pre-order for approximately $199.99 USD with free shipping. This device was listed with a new NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor that's "25% faster than the previous generation" with "enhanced HD video in real-time to 4K for clearer, crisper visuals using next-generation AI upscaling."

NVIDIA SHIELD TV will have two successors

After NVIDIA bowed out of the mobile rat race, it didn't completely step out of the Android market. In fact, by removing smartphones and tablets from its attention, it was able to pour all its focus on the NVIDIA SHIELD, an Android TV device that just keeps on giving nearly five years later. That said, the device is showing its age and there have been signs of a new NVIDIA SHIELD but, apparently, it won't just be one but will have two models coming hopefully really soon.

NVIDIA Shield update says you WIN at choosing gadgets

The original NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device was released in the year 2015. In the year 2019, NVIDIA is still releasing significant software updates. Our modern hardware/software world makes most people expect that any non-laptop or desktop PC device they purchase will work fine for a couple years, then will probably slow a significant amount. With the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV smart gaming device, that does NOT seem to be true.
