The SHIELD TABLET uses an NVIDIA® Tegra® K1 2.2 GHz processor that has a 192-core Kepler GPU, which is combined with 2GB RAM.

Processor

STORAGE
NVIDIA® SHIELD has got 16GB of storage for all kinds of media including games, movies and images. 128GB additional storage via MicroSD.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow Upgrades

Now on Tap
This new feature from Google anticipates what you need, the moment you need it. With a simple tap, you’ll be able to quickly find information related to what you are seeing on the screen, as well as inside an app.

Adoptable Storage
Expandable storage moves internal. MicroSD cards can now be integrated with main internal storage, auto managed by the system, cutting out the need to manage where apps and files are stored. This replaces SHIELD’s move to SD functionality.

Improved App Permissions
Permissions are now managed centrally, meaning you have more freedom to grant access as you wish.

App Standby
Battery life is a big factor when choosing a device. App Standby can improve it in a big way. App Standby will automatically put an app into a standby state based on when you last used it, pausing network access and sync; it ends once the tablet starts charging. You’ll also get improved Bluetooth Low Energy scanning power efficiency.

More Upgrades from NVIDIA

New NVIDIA SHIELD Camera
We’re adding a new camera app to SHIELD tablet K1, with a user interface inspired by Material Design. It brings improved burst photo functionality and adds new real-time HD image effects, accelerated by Tegra K1’s Kepler-based GPU.

User Interface Upgrades
Personalize Home and Lock screens with different wallpapers, including new NVIDIA wallpapers. You can launch Google Now voice commands from the lock screen. And you can personalize your Quick Settings menu, adding, removing or rearranging toggles.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I was recommended it does not disappoint Lovely little tablet, it has great a sound, looks good, feels solid, crisp screen and performs well. I've steered clear of android for many years because of frankly all the rubbish thats installed on it, but the new 6.0/NVIDIA version, is great, clean simple and very versatile. Bad Point: Ok it can be a bit battery hungry, but if you set it up right, throttle the cores, set the power optimising up on your apps, I've had 2 days out of it (Standard use Surfing, playing music, e-mails etc) Gaming on it will zap the battery logically as its using a lot of processing power. Over all I am very impressed with it and would recommend to anyone! A good quality item at a reasonable price! 03 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Great Tablet Great Gaming Great Streaming From your PC Great streaming from Nvidia cant fault it 09 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nvidia Shield K1 The tablet is very good if a little heavy. The battery life is disapointing I do not think it will last for the indicated time at least the one I have will not and I am not a heavy user. 31 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Full of great features! Love this tablet, its became my go to tablet for everything over my Surface Pro 3. The gaming feature on it is fantastic.I love using the controller for playing some classics that were PS2 titles that are on the Play store now. It runs great too, the fact it comes with Android 6.0 is great, I sell phones for a living and only a handful of handsets have this. the battery is okay, I've not done a real test of it, but seems quite average. I also watch most of my movies and TV shows on it and it is also fantastic doing that. If I lost, broke or god forbid this tablet got stolen, I'd easy order another one, if this happened to me with anything else, I'd typically give another device a try but not this one. I'd easy by another one from Scan if any of the above happened, the shipping came to me less than 24 hours after ordering which is amazing for only £10 shipping! I actually wanted to add a SD card less than 20 minutes after purchasing and couldn't because it had already been dispatched! :O 30 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant For the price, its one beefy tablet, and would be hard to compete with compared to other high end tablets of its kind. I've been emulating PSP games and such, and I've maxed out the graphics and I still get between 30-60 frames. Other tablet games such as "Tales from the Borderlands" run smoothly and in high detail. Like all tablets running 3D high end games, the battery life isn't amazing (none the less still good), but for browsing the web and other uses for a tablet, the battery life lasts ages. Overall, if you want a gaming tablet running android, get this one! 21 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 months in So 3 months in to owning this its finally come into its own and I love it. Its a great tablet for the money, if you want a decent lightweight piece of kit. But the streaming service is amazing. I had'nt had the right modem till around a month ago so it struggled to work through the nvidia app but worked through a 3rd party one. Now my modem supports a strong 5ghz its beautiful to stream or play with as a normal tablet! 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best cheap tablet I bought two of these for my kids to replace the Tegra Note they had. Now for gaming this tablet is hands down the best. Nvidia Grid is great and native games run super smooth. This is the way forward - I hope more devs join on this platform because what Nvidia is doing is just great. 18 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great spec for the price I bought this for my son. He loves it. No problems so far. Runs everything we have thrown at it. Good graphics. Works well with the controller 15 January 2016
