I wouldn't trust anything from Nvidia, ever. The only reason this thing exists at all is because the OEM's dont want to deal with Nvidia. They miss deadlines, break promises, over promise and under deliver consistently.

I bet my left nut this thing runs hotter than hell too.

That may be true, but my PCs have used exclusively nvidia for years. Because of the Linux drivers.

I have had several Nvidia cards as well... If its out and available and independent reviews say its good, then its good... ALso if there are no supply or yield issues, then fine.

Just don't trust what Nvidia says about anything before its widely avilable and independently reviewed is all I am sayin'.

I played around with the NVIDIA Shield at E3.


The hardware (gamepad and display) was great, streaming from a PC looked awesome, etc etc. A tablet is a bit more problematic since we're talking about driving a higher res display, fewer tablet games on Android, Tegra 4 having been leapfrogged before it was released, etc etc. That said, $200 is an awesome price, and after playing with the Shield I have hopes that the hardware will feel good too.
