Here is a great news for gamers out there. The latest information unearthed from the AnTuTu Benchmark database reveals that NVIDIA is working on a successor of its portable gaming device called the SHIELD, which was launched last year and was one of the most powerful hand-held gaming console.
The prototype of the NVIDIA Shield 2, which has appeared online recently can be considered far better than the previous one as it comes with heavily tweaked hardwares.
According to the details that have surfaced via the benchmark site, the successor of the fist NVIDIA Shield comes powered by a 64-bit quad-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip clocked at 2.5 GHz with GeForce Kepler graphics (192 CUDA cores). This is the same SoC that is capable of scoring roughly 44,500 points in AnTuTu. It would have 4GB of RAM and run on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).
If display is bothering you, there is no information about it right now but the predecessor came with 5-inch HD display, thus anything bigger or same can be expected. Display resolution is mentioned as 1440×810. The original resolution could be 1440×900, since 90 pixels is occupied by Android on-screen navigation-bar. According to the listing, it will also have 16GB of native storage and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera as well. Battery and dimension of the device is not yet disclosed.
It should be noted that this is just a prototype of the device and the company might change the hardware anytime they want. However, NVIDIA Shield, which has already earned a impressive reviews is well known for its heavy graphic interface. Thus you can actually expect the same from the successor as well.
