Don't worry, you read that right. You know those guys that make some of the most high tech computer parts in the industry? The guys that make those top of the line graphics cards and are nearly stamped somewhere on the box of every new PC game release? Yeah, those guys came out of nowhere today and announced a new console.
It's not that we weren't expecting new consoles anytime soon, but one from Nvidia? And a handheld one at that? Mad props to the boys running the show on their ability to keep things from leaking. Remember when the Vita was "announced" at E3? Speaking of the PlayStation Vita, it looks like it's got even more competition coming its way now.
Codenamed the Nvidia Shield, this portable PC streamer comes equipped with a MicroSD slot, micro USB and HDMI output (which swill support 4K output in accordance with your display), and a 5" screen capable of 720p display at 294dpi.
As previously stated, the Nvidia Shield will be able to stream PC games and will support full android games as well. You can even navigate Steam's "Big Picture" mode with it. So far, there is no news on a price or release date, but one can expect something like this to be released later in the year, possibly around the holidays.
