"The Nvidia Shield is the most powerful streaming TV set-top box ever made. With it, you can stream 4K videos and play console-quality videogames, two things you can’t do on a Roku, an Apple TV, Amazon’s Fire TV and even Google 's’s own Nexus Player.Nvidia Shield Review: A Killer Machine Caught Between Two Worlds - Personal Tech News - WSJ
It can do all this because the Shield isn’t just any old video box. On the outside, it looks like a stealth bomber. On the inside, it has Nvidia’s beastly Tegra X1 chipset, with a 256-core graphics processor and 3 GB of RAM. With all that power—and an Xbox-style controller that comes in the box—the Shield easily handled all the games available from Android TV and Nvidia’s own Grid streaming-games service. It never lagged (except when I was streaming a game over a poor Wi-Fi connection)."
