Speaking of TV boxes for gaming:
Tonight at a press conference scheduled to coincide with GDC 2015, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang annouced the latest addition to its Shield line of products. Called simply “Shield,” Nvidia’s new device is a set-top box powered by Nvidia’s Tegra X1 processor, using Google’s Android OS and the search giant’s new TV platform, Android TV. Shield supports 4K content encoded with H.265, and can stream local content from Nvidia-powered PCs at 1080p60. Shield also supports the company’s game-streaming initiative, Grid.
