Indeed, NVIDIA will release a 500GB Pro version of the Android-powered Shield set-top box

After many speculations and hearsay, as well as prematurely and briefly featuring it on Amazon, NVIDIA now seemingly confirmed that it intends to launch a beefy, 500GB Shield Pro version of its Android-powered set-top box. As Android Police reports, a few NVIDIA representatives have acknowledged the existence of the gaming/ TV-oriented device.
Apart from the hefty amount of available storage that greatly sets it apart from the base 16GB version, the Shield Pro will most probably feature the same specs as its humbler version. We are talking about a Tegra X1 SoC, 256-core Maxwell GPU unit to crunch through graphics, some 3GB of operational memory, and last, but definitely not least, full hardware support for 4K video playback.
What's more, it's also been confirmed that it will be launched pretty soon, by the end of May. As far as pricing is concerned, the 500GB Shield Pro will cost $299, a $100 more than the 16GB one. Anyone interested?

I'm a PC gamer with a Nvidia GPU IMO the 16GB isn't have enough space $300 the 500GB is far too much Its only $50 less than the more capable Xbox One Nvidia should have priced the 500GB at around $150 But I even at $150 I don't really see the point Nvidia should make a new $300 Portable or Tablet with the X1 Just include a micro HDMI port so users can also plug it into their TVs

Easily the Xbox One The X1 is 0.5 TFLOPS The Xbox One is 1.3 TFLOPS The X1 is 5W tablet SoC, can't really compete with a fan cool APU But the X1 is probably more powerful than the 10 year old 360/PS3

I'd be interested in buying this if they increased the display size. I really want a 10.1" version. But I would be happy enough with a 9".

To the faces of those who have complained about its old one's storage. Surprisingly, still half price of Apple's iPad.

Best Android gaming devices are from nvidia or use nvidia hardware, it's not even close. If they suck then what does that say about everything else on the market?

He doesn't truly hate Android, he's insanely jealous of it. He watched it shoot past iOS not only in volume, but in functionality and stability, in a very short time, and it causes him incredible pain. Now, he has to watch year after year as iOS simply copies functionality from Android and Android OEMs (often functionality he dismissed as gimmicks in the past), and the bile rises up in his throat. It's unendurable bitterness that he has to release on comment sections like this, or go insane. Let him have his release. It's probably all that keeps him from harming himself or others.

Dear Mr. Buster, I firmly believe you should just stfu. Nobody cares about your comments and frankly, they're more annoying to read than any other user on this site. They're full of ignorance and bigotry. Because NVIDIA hasn't made a fortune off of it doesn't mean it sucks. That's a possibility, but it's not the noly conclusion. Please, for the sake of the readers, article writers, and website as a whole, stop with your stupid, blown-out-of-proportion hate so we can enjoy an article. If you keep annoying people, sooner or later people are going to just stop coming to the site. If you don't have something smart to say, please don't say it at all. Regards, Taylor
