No Android Oreo for the NVIDIA Shield Tablets

No Android Oreo for the NVIDIA Shield Tablets

Quality Android tablets are in decline these days, but the Shield Tablet from NVIDIA has been one of the better options of the last few years, even for those with little interest in gaming. Unfortunately for owners of these devices — both the original Shield Tablet from 2014, and 2015's Shield Tablet K1 — NVIDIA has now revealed they won't be upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo, the newest version of the mobile OS.

NVIDIA’s new Pegasus wants the keys to your Level 5 autonomous car

Though development on self-driving vehicles seems to be proceeding nicely at a number of different companies, the end goal of creating level 5 autonomous vehicles is still quite a ways off. Prototypes for cars that feature level 5 autonomy already exist, but the amount of computing power those cars need to carry out their tasks is immense, resulting in heavy, power hungry systems. NVIDIA wants to help with that, introducing its third-generation Drive PX platform at GTC Europe 2017 today.

SHIELD TV re-branded to battle Apple TV (with price cut too!)

This week the folks at NVIDIA have done a bit of clever re-branding to make their war with Apple TV more visible. To do this, they're now calling the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV something else - they're calling it just SHIELD TV. NVIDIA is also kicking the price down a bit by switching what's available in the box, aiming for $179 - that's approximately $21 cheaper than the previous least costly edition of this device.

NVIDIA SHIELD Portable 2 in pawnshop shows what could have been

NVIDIA has had a strange relationship with Android. While it backed out of the consumer mobile device market, it still managed to put out an Android gaming handheld, tablet, and then Android TV device. And while it was, at one point, one of the fastest to push updates to its very few devices, it seems that those days are long gone. For better or for worse, NVIDIA may have taken a new direction and has left the Android world behind, which only makes this discovery of an unreleased SHIELD Portable 2 prototype all the more poignant.

Final Fantasy 15 PC release finally announced – watch the 4K trailer here

We expected Gamescom to hold its share of big gaming announcements, but one of the most surprising (and exciting) ones is the reveal that Final Fantasy 15 will be coming to PC. Announced by Square Enix during a special NVIDIA event, a PC version of the game had previously only been hinted at. It seems that the PC version of Final Fantasy 15 may very well become the definitive version, with NVIDA calling this port the "highest-end edition" of the game.

NVIDIA SHIELD European plug recalled over safety concerns

NVIDIA SHIELD European plug recalled over safety concerns

When speaking of potential fire hazards and electronic devices, we usually think about faulty batteries or exposed cables. Who would have thought that a plug adapter could be just as dangerous. But that’s exactly the worry that has caused NVIDIA to announce a voluntary recall program in Europe to replace the two-prong plug head that ships with the NVIDIA SHIELD. Apparently, the build quality wasn’t so great that it could potentially break off and give users the shock of their lives.
