Next-gen NVIDIA Shield tablet leaked in FCC filing


A next generation Nvidia Shield may have been leaked by an FCC filing, showing specifications for a new Nvidia Tablet which features a slightly smaller and more lightweight design. 

Nvidia's original Shield Tablet was launched in 2014 and was rereleased in late 2015 under the Sheild Tablet K1 branding, which lacked the tablet's integrated stylus.  

With Nvidia's Shield tablet using a SoC with a GPU that is based on the Kepler architecture, which now is two generations old. This means that Nvidia should be able to deliver a new SoC with much greater GPU performance if they based it on their modern Pascal GPU architecture and can take advantage of huge power savings with TSMC's 16nm FinFET processing tech.

On the FCC filing, this new tablet design was confirmed to measure at 8.6"x4.8"x0.3" and weighs 12.3 ounces (348g), which is slightly smaller than the original Shield tablet and over an ounce lighter than the original Nvidia Shield Tablet, which weighed 13.76 ounces (390g). 

The filing also stated that the new tablet would support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wifi, use a Micro USB port for charging and support low energy Bluetooth. It would have been nice to see this new tablet use the newer USB Type-C standard, but this is something that Nvidia could easily change in the future.

Any idea on the chip? The K1 version was already the best tablet on the market for performance after taking in pricing. That was so cheap compared to the other offerings that were twice as much money. If they got this on Pascal that'll probably put it damn near console level, or Xbone I should sayQuote
