The new $199 Nvidia Shield Tablet K1 is an affordable high-performance Android tablet for gamers
A few months ago when we took a look at the best tablets for mobile gaming, we pointed out to the Nvidia Shield Tablet as one of the best solutions from the Android camp. Nvidia's first foray in the tablet market ticked a lot of the same boxes as your typical high-end Android tablet but also integrated several bells and whistles designed specifically for an enhanced gaming experience.
As the name suggests, the Shield Tablet K1 is powered by the Nvidia Tegra K1, the same SoC that stood at heart of the original Shield Tablet. The chip integrates a 2.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU and a 192-core GeForce Kepler GPU, and remains to this day one of the most powerful mobile SoCs in Android benchmarks and video gaming tests.
Compared to the original Shield Tablet, the K1 iteration only brings minor design changes. Chief among these tweaks is the removal of the pen slot from the tablet's chassis. The new Tablet K1 is compatible with the ShieldDirect Stylus 2, but the pen is no longer included in the price of the tablet. Furthermore, the Shield Tablet K1 will also ship without a charger or an adapter. These are all cost-cutting measures, but many customers will probably appreciate the reduced price that accompanies them.
What do you guys think of the new Nvidia Shield Tablet K1?
