The NVIDIA SHIELD is coming up on its first birthday and, while its still a great device, it’s about due for a refresh. Fortunately, it appears that one is on the way as a new NVIDIA product resembling the SHIELD has just passed through the FCC. The P2570 can be seen in a render looking like a very SHIELD-like game controller. The 2013 SHIELD held the model number of P2450 and this new model number follows in a sequential order, furthering the probability that this is the SHIELD 2.
The picture shows very few physical differences from the original SHIELD, which isn’t necessarily bad as the SHIELD was quite well-designed. The internals are where most of the change should happen with a new Tegra K1 chip powering the system. The display should also see a bump up from 720p.
Did you buy the original SHIELD? Are you interested in buying the SHIELD 2?
