Fortunately, that isn’t the case and the latest SHIELD Experience 7.2 upgrade not only fixes or updates existing apps, it even brings new experiences, including Amazon Music.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX, Jetson AGX Xavier dev kits roll out

Japan is often seen as the land of robots and hi-tech machines, be it real-world ones or products of fiction. In the near future, the boundaries between those two might start to blur. Especially if NVIDIA keeps on pushing its flavor of AI to Japanese companies. At GTC in Japan, the graphics hardware maker dumped a lot of AI-related news, including the global availability of its new AI development kits for robots and, of course, self-driving cars.

Its real SHIELD baby, however, is the SHIELD Android TV consoles and those are now getting an update that does more than just add new features or apps. It also prolongs their use by letting them “play” PC games on TVs.

NVIDIA RTX 2080 vs GTX 1080: The early head-to-head

NVIDIA kicked off Gamescom by revealing its new RTX 20 series GPUs. That reveal was accompanied by a number of impressive demonstrations, but as you might expect, NVIDIA didn't really get down to hard numbers and benchmarks. More specifically, it didn't really give us a good idea of how these new RTX cards compare to its current GTX 10 series lineup.
