Nvidia Project Shield live hands-on footage: shows high-spec streaming

By Dave Cook, Friday, 11 January 2013 08:37 GMT

Nvidia’s Project Shield has been the subject of immense scrutiny and speculation this week since it was revealed at CES – you can check out our full report on what the console involves here. Fresh video footage of the console in action has surfaced over at Mini PC Pro’s YouTube channel, showing the console running live.

The clip above shows off the Tegra-4 powered handheld, which can also be plugged into your television via HDMI, although the on-board screen itself displays at 720p. The controller has an in-built SD Card slot that lets users upgrade their storage. It plays Android titles and streams PC games at a distance to your couch, and to your television. So essentially, it enables high-end PC gaming in the living room, something Valve is also keen to establish with Steam Box.

What do you think of the above? Will it change the way gamers view PC? Let us know below.

Thanks again Mini PC Pro.
