The ultimate tablet for gamersKey Features:
- 8-inch, 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display
- Nvidia Tegra K1 processor and 2GB of RAM
- 16GB storage and microSD expansion
Nvidia's second tablet for gamers is even better. The Shield Tablet K1 builds on the formula of the last as it uses the same 8-inch, Full HD display. It's slim and understated and we like the combination of rubber and soft-touch plastic, which makes the K1 nice to hold.
Gaming grunt comes from Nvidia's Tegra K1 processor, which is every bit as powerful as you'd expect. It's certainly among the very fastest chips found in any Android device, so there are no problems there.
The K1 runs near stock Android, too, but there are plenty of Nvidia apps that add extra features, such as the ability to stream games from the cloud or from a PC. An optional controller makes it easier to play these games, and we recommend the very handy folding case cover as well.
