NVIDIA's SHIELD gadget is undeniably unique in the Android world, which might be why the company has decided to go with a more mainstream form factor for its second hardware foray. The SHIELD Tablet, as it's officially titled, was leaked hard last week, but NVIDIA made it official this morning. The 8-inch device features the latest Tegra K1 processor, a 1080p LCD screen, NVIDIA's GameStream software and other specialized apps, and an optional controller that's similar to the control pad on the original SHIELD.

On Friday, the proverbial whole kit and caboodle of NVIDIA Shield Tablet information leaked to the public ahead of the device's seemingly imminent announcement. It goes on sale, allegedly, in less than two weeks, and will cost $299 or $399, depending on which storage model and connectivity (Wi-Fi 16GB, LTE 32GB) you want.

It's also the first widely-available device to be released with NVIDIA's Tegra K1 chip, albeit a quad-core A15 CPU and not the upcoming Denver 64-bit dual-core architecture, and that's kind of exciting.

Two men, each a hardened warrior, each with a single goal: survive. Their wills are iron, their bodies are steel, and their entire being is wrapped around the intensity of their deadly purpose. Only one will stand victorious at the bitter end, and each will give anything, and everything, to make sure that it's him.

You've got to give props to Epic Games: they know how to make a good tech demo.

Google has just announced the official Project Tango tablet development kit, an insanely powerful slate powered by NVIDIA's Tegra K1 processor. This thing is beastly - 7" display (unknown type / resolution), 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, Tegra K1 quad-core processor (not the dual-core 64-bit Denver), motion-tracking cameras, integrated depth sensing, Android KitKat, and LTE. The big catch? It's only for developers, and it will cost $1024. Yikes. Granted, this is a high-tech, cutting-edge experimental product designed as a reference and development tool, not something to check your Gmail on while browsing Reddit.

Back at CES 2014, NVIDIA took the wraps off its Tegra 4 successor, the Tegra K1. Since then, we've been waiting for the first device running this next-gen chip to hit the scene. Looks like Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is the first to take advantage of K1 with its first tablet, the MiPad.

If there's one thing to be said about the MiPad, it's that it looks a lot like an iPad Mini.

If the Internet had a pantheon of deities, Linux kernel creator Linus Torvalds would surely be among them, with a big white beard and a laurel wreath. Torvalds has been a vocal detractor of corporations that don't offer support for Linux, including an especially expressive denouncement of NVIDIA back in 2012. But yesterday, Torvalds gave NVIDIA a thumbs-up - which is two whole fingers away from his previous gesture - for posting an early open-source driver for the Tegra K1.

After explaining why the GPU in the just announced Tegra K1 was awesome from an architectural standpoint, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang went on to reveal that Epic Games would be bringing Unreal Engine 4 to mobile devices via the Tegra K1. Nvidia is keen on getting game developers to include improved graphics for Tegra devices, but Unreal Engine 4 support could take Tegra gaming to a whole new level.

Nvidia is having its traditional CES press event and has taken the opportunity to reveal some details on its next generation Tegra chip. Nvidia has talked about its mobile plans a little in general terms recently, but now we have a name and some specs to go on. The successor to Tegra 4 will be called the Tegra K1 and it comes in two different versions.
