The Te­gra K1-pow­ered tablet puts ex­treme gaming power at your fin­ger­tips

BuiltUNASHAMEDLY­forgamers,this8-inch1080p tablet spin-off from Nvidia’s odd-but-great Shield hand­held shaves off the cu­rio’s con­sole joy­pad for a sleeker, more mass-mar­ket sell. Most im­por­tantly, though, it’s upped its in­nards, as the An­droid-fu­elled Shield Tablet is the first to pack the chip firm’s Te­gra K1 pro­ces­sor.

This mo­bile pow­er­house utilises 192 graph­ics cores squeezed on to quad-core ar­chi­tec­ture to hit a max­i­mum clock speed of 2.3Ghz. In gaming speak, that means the finest flu­id­ity you’ll see on a tab and the abil­ity to stream games from your desk­top. There’s even Nvidia ShadowPlay, which lets you stream your gaming out on Twitch, too, while LTE func­tion­al­ity also means it isn’t limited to your Wi-Fi.

There’s a choice of 16 or 32GB stor­age and the tab works wire­lessly with Nvidia’s Xbox-like con­troller, if you yearn to go “full gamer”. FROM US$299, con­tro ller US$60, nvidia.com, out now
