Making the Tablet K1 an ideal solution for anyone looking for a new way to enjoy a heightened gaming experience. As well as access to the standard Android games available through the Play Store, the Tablet K1 is compatible with NVIDIA’s GameStream service as well as the newly introduced GeForce NOW subscription service, which includes a variety of popular PC games.
In addition to the SHIELD Tablet K1 going on sale, NVIDIA has also announced a bunch of games which those thinking about picking up the new Tablet K1, can instantly take advantage of. The headliner of the games on offer is the latest Need for Speed edition, Need for Speed No Limits. Although, this is a game which had become available back at the end of September, NVIDIA has confirmed that EA is updating the game today, which will mean owners of the Tablet K1 can take advantage of the game at its maximum settings.
