nVidia Shield Tablet Benchmark results

Postposted on Fri Aug 01, 2014 1:45 pm

If anyone was wondering the benchmarks on the nVidia Shield tablet here it is.
I guess I'm the world record holder?...

The only changes I did out of the box before benchmarking are the following:

-System Update (approx- ~600mb in size)
-Nova launcher prime installed
-Changed default power settings from optimal performance to max performance
-Performed the benchmark while plugged into a 2.4amp wall charger

P.S. Sorry if the images are too large

You win!

But seriously, the K1 is a very powerful chip. It's a shame that it kills batteries to get there (~2.5 hours of heavy gaming according to Anandtech) but it's very impressive nonetheless.

I am still waiting for NV to make a set-top box Shield device. Perhaps someone else will at some point, but having it come from NV as a reference design with timely updates is much more appealing.

I'm personally more interested in battery life under different usage conditions, as well as things like speaker's frequency response. As Anandtech has shown in the past - the synthetic "random score generator" benchmarks have very little relevance due to various mobile manufacturers doing specific optimizations to artificially inflate the scores of most-used benchmark apps :wink:

You can already use this tablet for exactly the same purpose, all you need is to connect it to power supply and use appropriate HDMI cable to connect it to TV. It is powerful enough to stream any game (from your main PC with Nvidia card, which does the actual rendering) to your TV, with an additional benefit of being pretty good portable Android tablet.

I'm impressed by Nvidia's new tablet, the new processor's GPU is clearly much better than it was in their first tablet. It'll be really exciting to see what happens in the next two years between tablets and smartphones.

Of course, you could do it with the Shield handheld as well. But i'd rather not pay for a screen, battery, etc hence the set-top-box.

I am with you with the set top box....something I can use to to game on any of my HTPC's/TV's with my gaming rig.
