NVIDIA Shield Release Date

NVIDIA on Monday announced that its Shield gaming system will begin shipping by the end of the month. The company previously delayed the launch of the Android-powered device from its scheduled June release due to an unspecified mechanical issue with a third-party component. The Shield is equipped with a 5-inch 720p display attached to a controller that features dual analog joysticks, a full-sized D-Pad, left and right analog triggers and A/B/X/Y buttons. Other specs include a quad-core Tegra 4 processor, a 72-core GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The system can also stream PC games from a computer with a GeForce GTX graphics card. The NVIDIA Shield is priced at $299 and will begin shipping on July 31st.
