Nvidia announced that their new Shield tablet will be updated to the 1.2 version, which means that the tablet will be more stable and the Shield Hub will be enhanced. This is not the first update Nvidia Shield tablet gets treated with. Nvidia has actually been updating it every month since its release. Now they want to focus on improving the performance capacity of their gaming tablet.
The latest update that the Nvidia Shield tablet receives is version 1.2 and comes with several cool new features for the Shield Hub. Some might say that the new features resemble Valve’s Steam, meaning that it allows its users free access to their video game library. The players also have priority when purchasing new products. Other Nvidia Shield tablet updates include:
- a new way of testing Network capability
- players get to customize “My Android Games”
- new apps available in My Media
- a cool looking swipe feature
- touch performance improvements
These are some of the most important Nvidia Shield tablet updates, but it’s not all. The LTE also got updated and the stability and localization problems they had in the past are taken care of. They announced the first update on July 38, followed by another one a month later, on August 28. The latest update was announced September 30 and it coincides with the release of the new 32GB Nvidia Shield tablet with LTE.
When it was launched, the Nvidia Shield tablet received plenty of favorable reviews, mostly for its solid and fast connectivity and for its super display. Some tech lovers criticized it, though, saying that the gaming experience is not at its full capacity and that the Nvidia Shield tablet works better as a tablet than a game controller.
The Nvidia Shield tablet runs on a Tegra K1 processor, comes with 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP front camera and a 5MP back cam. It has the same hardware specifications as the previous Nvidia tablet but the new model costs $399. You can also get it for $299 if you sign a contract with AT&T, called the LTE data plan.
