NEW NVIDIA SHIELD WITH SPOT GOOGLE ASSISTANT
NVIDIA just unobtrusively uncovered an all new form of its Shield gushing box that incorporates some truly fabulous updates. The new Shield seems to be indistinguishable to its antecedent, with a precise body and rectangular impression, and it’s controlled by the same Tegra X1 chip that offered life to the “old” shield, yet it’s a more fit gadget generally speaking. The new device highlights full 4K gushing backing for all the enormous spilling administrations and in addition 4K PC-to-TV diversion spilling.
Along with the 4K support, NVIDIA added Google Assistant, which can be used via voice command to launch shows from Netflix and elsewhere, as well as perform searches and deliver news, weather, and the like. Assistant will also work with NVIDIA’s all-new “Spot” accessory.
The Spot is basically a smart microphone that you plug into any outlet, and it syncs with the Shield to provide Assistant functions in additional rooms. It’s a surprisingly awesome whole-house AI solution, and it’s not from Apple, Samsung, or Amazon, which makes it all the more shocking.
You can order the new version of the Shield right now for $199, but the Spot add-ons aren’t quite ready for retail just yet. NVIDIA says it’ll announce pricing and availability soon, however.
