Nvidia SHIELD tablet and controller specs, availability and pricing leaks


Details about Nvidia’s upcoming Tegra K1 SoC powered tablet — the SHIELD tablet — have leaked online revealing everything about it. The tablet is going to be a successor to Nvidia’s last year Tegra Note 7 and will be the first Android tablet to come with its next-generation Tegra K1 SoC. 

The folks over at Video Cardz managed to get their hands on some internal presentation slides, which contains the full specifications of the tablet. They are as follows:

  • An 8-inch 1080p display
  • Nvidia’s Tegra K1 SoC with a quad-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A15 CPU
  • 192 core Kepler GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot
  • 5MPx front-facing camera
  • 5MP shooter at the rear
  • DirectStylus 2
  • Front-facing stereo speakers
  • Up to 10 hours of video playback
  • Wi-Fi/LTE connectivity


The 16GB version of the tablet will only retail for $299 while the 32GB version with LTE will set users back by $399. Nvidia will also be launching a SHIELD branded controller that can be used to control the tablet and play optimized games as well. It will, however, be sold separately for $59.

Nvidia is expected to announce the tablet on 22nd July with the device hitting the retail stores in the US from 29th July. The European launch of the device is scheduled for 14th August.
