Nvidia have revealed their first ever branded piece of hardware, in the form of a touchscreen mobile gaming console with an attached controller named Project Shield. The device packs an incredible amount of power, capable of outputting 4K video and being the first device announced to use the new Tegra 4 processor. This is a very impressive piece of mobile kit, and better yet, it runs on the Android OS.

With the powerful Tegra 4 processor, which consists of a quad-core CPU and a whopping 72-core GPU, the Shield promises to be the most powerful mobile gaming device released thus far. Its 720p 5″ touchscreen also has a very high ppi, so the screen will look as clear as the retina displays of most Apple Devices. The console will be capable of playing and outputting 4K content to a television through its included HDMI out port. Also included is a Micro-SD and USB port.

Project Shield will launch in the second quarter (Q2) of this year, and, with stunningly powerful specs such as these, we can only wonder what the pricing will be like. As it runs on Android, it will have access to both the Play Store and Tegra Zone. More to be revealed as we come closer to launch. Stick with InsideTheBox for gaming news and content!
