The leaked NVIDIA Shield TV has a cylindrical form factor with one end having a power port and an Ethernet port and an HDMI port at the other end and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The stick has been asked to stream with 4K including Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for HDR. The listing of NVIDIA Shield was previously viewed by Newegg and has since been removed.
Coming back to the new NVIDIA Shield TV, the device is powered by an Nvidia Tegra X1 Plus processor, which offers 25% faster performance than previous Shield TV streaming devices. Information circulating the Internet suggests that this will be the entry-level model of the Shield TV family of devices. NVIDIA Shield TV Pro can be seen as a version of a streaming device.
The streaming stick comes with a remote control that has a triangular design. The remote control has a power button, menu button, playback control, volume control, a mic and a dedicated Netflix button with a home button.
There is no price or launch date for the device, but you can expect more information about the upcoming device soon.
With TVs being smart, the need for streaming sticks is becoming harder to justify. The previous-gen NVIDIA shield ran a gamut of games and allowed you to stream the game from your PC via TV, making it an interesting proposition.
