When Nvidia's Shield tablet was released many people regarded it as the most powerful gaming tablet out there, containing PC grade graphics which simply powered through Android games like nothing else. It also was one of the first devices on the market to bring to the table In-Home Streaming capabilities, allowing PC gaming to no longer be restricted to the office.

As a former owner of the Nvidia Shield I simply loved the device, it was more powerful that I really needed and was simply one of the best built tablets of it's time. Now the Shield tablet has returned to the scene, with the same powerful specs and a much lower price.

Even now the Shield tablet is one of the most powerful tablets out there, almost unrivaled when it comes to pure gaming potential. Now it comes with a few less accessories, like the Nvidia Stylus, but still comes with the same Nvidia Kepler powered K1 SoC and still thrashes any other tablet in it's price range.  

 

Specification:


- 8" IPS FHD 1920x1080 touchscreen display
- Dimensions: 221mm(W)x126mm(H)x9.2mm(D)
- Weight: 356grams
- NVIDIA Tegra K1 2.2GHz Quad Core Processor
- Android 5.0 Lollipop OS
- 16GB Storage
- Front facing stereo speakers with bass reflex port with built-in microphone
- 19.75 Watt hour Lithium ion battery
- Front and rear 5MP cameras
- WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2 Mimo
- 2.4GHz & 5GHz Wifi
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
- GPS/GLONASS
- Mini-HDMI Output
- Micro USB2.0
- MicroSD
- 3.5mm Stero jack
- Shield Controller compatible
- GeForce NOW Cloud gaming service
- NVIDIA ShadowPlay
- Console Mode
- 4k Ultra-HD Ready
- 9-axis (g-sensor, compass, gyro)

 

It is fantastic to see Nvidia making their powerful Shield tablet much more accessible with this much lower price, but the lack of a Stylus is really something which may make several buyers hold off on the purchase. 

Right now the new Shield K1 Tablet is available for the price of £149.99 at Overclockers UK

That's actually a smidgen more realistic, and to be fair I would be extremely tempted to buy one.

But....

Sadly their streaming app is limited to their GPUs so I won't be buying one, not even at the cheaper price.

If they're going to continue to make monopolised beds they can lie in them.

To make a tablet when the world already has the very best is risky. To make one that assumes that every one is using an Nvidia GPU is just all out fail.Quote

It may not be the tablet for you, but if you are looking for a tablet then this is still a great option for any user with its great price to performance ratio. If I am correct there is ways of streaming from radeon powered pc's as well, but I cannot remember(there was an article somewhere)Quote

I've always felt that 8" was a tad too small for it, but I guess most people dont mind it.Quote
