NVIDIA Announces the 2017 Shield with 4K HDR Capability

NVIDIA announced the 2017 Shield home entertainment system. This device connects to your TV, and works as a game-streaming device that streams games rendered on your PC from another room, the cloud, through services such as GeForce Now, and "smarten" your TV through technologies such as Google Assistant. NVIDIA has given the 2017 Shield hardware upgrades that enable 4K HDR, that's 4K Ultra HD resolution with 10-bit HEVC/VP9 support, and HDR. NVIDIA plans to sell these at $199.

Aww, no 2017 NVIDIA SHIELD tablet with Tegra X1? The Google Pixel C is too overpriced at $499 and too big at 10".

Yeah, that sadly got cancelled due to self-driving cars or Nintendo Switch or diminished demand for tablets or whatever. I was hoping Nvidia would still keep the idea of a Shield X1 tablet on the backburner and announce it at CES 2017... but that doesn't seem like it's happening.
