GeForce Now Cloud Gaming
This is the best feature integrated into NVIDIA’s second-gen Android Shield TV. In fact, there are 50 available game titles readily available for streaming, according to PC Advisor. On top of that, Shield TV owners will get three-month free of service upon purchase.
GeForce now brings a wide array of game content to NVIDIA Android Shield TV 2. This is quite impressive for a streaming device. However, such feature is a question of how far could it deliver in the competitive streaming service market. In addition, more consumers are already subscribed to giant players in streaming market like NetFlix. Amid the obvious difference, Shield TV 2’s unique offer does not guarantee an advantage in this field.
NVIDIA announced that Shield TV 2 runs in Android 7.0 Nougat, according to Droid Life. The same update also arrives in its predecessor, narrowing the difference in advantage of the latest unit from the old version.
NVIDIA Android Shield TV’s old and new versions are basically the same. They have the same specs and runs on within the same speed range but the older version seems to be more capable of holding bigger storage. The old version actually has a MicroSD card for expandable memory while the second-generation Android Shield TV has none.
NVIDIA Android Shield TV 2 sports a slimmer body making it space-saver and quite convenient to store. However, the slimmer built does not justify the refresh and the new price value fans should pay in case they buy it.
