Nvidia has just launched its GeForce Now game-streaming service, and now here’s something to play it on.
It’s called the Nvidia Shield TV, and it’s a streaming box that handles games, TV shows, films, music and apps.
It’s powered by Android TV and Google Cast, so the experience will be optimised for the big screen.
It’s also kitted out for games. As well as being compatible with GeForce Now, it also packs an Nvidia Tegra X1 processor. Nvidia claims this delivers up to 25 times the performance of other streaming devices.
That partners with a 256-core GPU and a whopping 3GB of RAM.
It comes with a bunch of apps preinstalled. These include Netflix, Google Play Store, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Google Play Music, Photos & Videos and Plex. You can download more from the Google Play Store.
The Shield TV is on sale now. Prices start at £150 for the 16GB model, or £230 for the 500GB Shield Pro version. Both have microSD card slots for storage expansion.
Accessories are available too. The Shield Remote gaming controller costs £40, while the Shield Stand will set you back £25.
With Roku rumoured to be announcing a new 4K-capable streaming box any day now, there’s never been a better time to be a TV addict.
