The NVIDIA SHIELD is a strange device. It has Assistant built-in, but it sometimes lacks features of other Assistant devices. You can also control the SHIELD from other Assistant devices, but it doesn't have all the standard Chromecast features. NVIDIA says "deeper integration" with Google Home is rolling out now, which may help to smooth out some inconsistencies. Read More
NVIDIA's SHIELD TV hasn't been getting any younger, but it's still the Android TV box to have. It was available for $139 last month, but for one day only. Best Buy currently has the same deal (okay, it's an extra 99 cents), and you can get a controller for an extra $40 on top of that. Read More
The Tegra X1 is one of Nvidia's latest mobile processors, powering devices like the Nintendo Switch, Google Pixel C, and Nvidia Shield. It's not uncommon that vulnerabilities are discovered in SoCs, and that has just happened for the Tegra X1. Katherine Temkin and the ReSwitched hacking team have just released details about a security flaw, nicknamed 'Fusée Gelée,' that allows unauthenticated arbitrary code execution on devices using the Tegra chip.

Have you been holding off on your next high-end gaming monitor purchase because you're unable find one that's 65 inches across and has built-in smart TV features? Me either. But, if you're a serious living room desktop PC gamer, today's announcement from NVIDIA and its partners Acer, Asus, and HP could have you reconsidering your next big TV investment.
Essentially, NVIDIA has developed a reference platform for these manufacturers to produce displays that combine an NVIDIA Shield (i.e., Android TV), NVIDIA's G-Sync technology, and a 4K 120Hz HDR screen more than five feet in diameter. It calls these "BFGDs," or Big Format Gaming Displays, which is what NVIDIA says this acronym stands for even though we all know that is absolutely not what it stands for. Read More
Sometimes a good deal deserves an encore. Nvidia's SHIELD TV is a popular set-top Android device, providing you with all the apps you love on a big screen, as well as some decent gaming chops. Back during the Black Friday sales it dropped down to $149, or $30 off the full price. But just in case you missed it, the deal is back. Read More
The Nvidia Shield TV is unquestionably the best Android TV box you can buy right now, especially if you're looking to do some gaming. Earlier today, Nvidia announced that the Shield is coming to China, but the selection of games is particularly interesting. At the launch event, the company revealed that the Shield would offer remastered Nintendo games from the Wii and GameCube eras. Read More
The 16GB SHIELD TV (2017) costs $199.99 and the price has rarely budged since its release at the start of the year. It was once down $20 for Amazon Prime Day and another time you could get $25 off with Visa Checkout, but that's it. So you can imagine that the smallest discount is worthy of mention, and that's the case of this $30 discount that brings it to its lowest price yet at $169.99.
Best Buy is running a "Black Friday Ad Deal" on the SHIELD TV that brings its price down from $199.99 to $169.99. That happens to be $10 less than the "SHIELD TV with remote" version (but without controller) that NVIDIA released a couple of months ago. Read More
At the launch of the second-generation NVIDIA SHIELD, we heard about several accessory devices that would work with the main hardware, but they haven't all come to fruition. Remember the NVIDIA Spot? That's still MIA, but the promised Samsung SmartThings Link has popped up on Amazon for pre-order. Read More
I have some good news for SHIELD owners, NVIDIA has released two new SHIELD games onto the Play Store. Clustertruck and The Final Station are now available for download at $14.99 a piece. Yes, these are both ports, but in my opinion they are also quality games released at a fair price point. If you are looking for something new to play on your SHIELD, you can't go wrong with either of these titles. Read More
