Nvidia releases new Shield TV and Shield TV Pro devices – Delivers more performance and features!

Nvidia has officially released two new Sheild TV models, both of which features the company’s new Tegra X1 processor, which is said to offer up to a 25% performance boost. 

While the new Shield TV Pro offers buyers the same form factor as older Shield TV models, the new Shield TV offers users a smaller device that’s easily hidden within a user’s home theatre setup. In addition to this, both models feature support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos Audio, as well as AI upscaling to 4K from lower resolutions. This can be used to improve the quality of HD video streams in 4K screens. 

The new Shield TV offers users HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet and MicroSD expandability alongside 2GB of internal memory and 8GB of internal storage. The Shield Pro’s larger frame enables it to provide users with 3GB of internal memory, support for external storage mediums over two USB 3.0 headers and 16GB of internal storage. Both devices use Android TV and support Chromecast functionality. 

Both new Shield models ship with a new remote control which is powered by two AAA batteries. These remotes feature motion-activated backlit buttons and feature a built-in “lost remote locator” and mic for voice search. Both Shield TV devices support internet connectivity via WiFi and Gb ethernet.
