NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet X1 Spotted On GFXBench


When it comes to gaming, NVIDIA is always one of the companies the market pays close attention to. They do bring with them a gaming prowess that you will not find on other like-minded products. For instance, in the Android TV domain, their NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device is hands-down the best gaming experience available from the selection of Android TV products that are currently available. A device which was only reported yesterday to be seeing a big discount for the Black Friday weekend.

In fact, it was only a couple of weeks ago when NVIDIA announced that they were also relaunching their previous Android powered gaming tablet, the SHIELD Tablet as the updated NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1. The big selling point being the Tablet K1 comes equipped with the Tegra K1 processor, which helps to offer a better gaming experience. Well, it looks like that might not be the only tablet on the way from the company as a GFXBench listing has now popped up for another NVIDIA tablet. The big difference being, that this one comes equipped with the Tegra X1 processor, the same processor which comes running on the Android TV NVIDIA SHIELD.


In terms of the full listed specs, the GFXBench listing states that the SHIELD Tablet X1 will come sporting an 8-inch display, along with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. Moving to the inside and the SHIELD Tablet X1 will come equipped with 3GB RAM and will be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor (clocking at 1.9 GHz). Storage is set at what seems to be 32GB for internal storage (listed as 25GB) and there is no mention of whether there will be an option to expand the storage. In terms of cameras, both the back and front cameras are listed as "not supported" although under features, both the front and rear cameras are listed as included. As such, there is currently no firm details on what the camera megapixel counts will be. Additional features noted include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support (although, there will be no NFC support) and the Tablet X1 is listed as coming running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). Of course, these are just benchmarks and they can be altered. So it is worth keeping this in mind until any official confirmation comes through.
