Nvidia Project Shield – Gamers Should Definitely Be Excited
Back at CES in Las Vegas, Nvidia has fully demoed its latest hand-held gaming console, the Project Shield. Whether or not that’s a temporary name tag it doesn’t really matter. What matters is the gadget’s potential and I’m fairly sure that if you’ve read our initial report regarding the Shield, then you’re most likely as excited about Nvidia’s hand-held gadget as we are.
Besides the fact that the Shield is powered by pure Android Jelly Bean (so as a result it can run pretty much any Android game out there), one of the biggest highlights of the gadget is the fact that it can stream PC games from a GeForce-powered computer. Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.

Back when this beast was announced, one of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind was whether or not the Shield will be able to stream PC games as intended, meaning with no lag, or by encountering any other game breaking issues that us gamers loathe.
Well folks, judging by the latest video shared by Nvidia, I’m happy to report that the Shield works like a charm. As you’re about to see in the video below, Will Park of Nvidia takes the console for a spin and starts streaming Borderlands 2 from a GeForce GTX 680-powered PC directly onto the Shield, via WiFi. By the looks of it, the game runs smoothly, there are no lag issues and overall, well, I’m impressed and I’d really like to give this hand-held beast a try as soon as possible.
