A Next-gen NVIDIA Shield tablet has received FCC certification


A next generation Nvidia Shield has been certified by the FCC, showing specifications for a new Nvidia Tablet which features a slightly smaller and more lightweight design than its predecessor. 

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. To this day the Original Nvidia Shield tablet remains competitive within the marketplace, coming in at a reasonable price and with the ability to upgrade to the most recent version of Android.   

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. 


Next-gen NVIDIA Shield tablet leaked in FCC filing


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.

I think battery life is going to be the biggest improvement. Don't really think more GPU power will make anymore of a difference, it's already more than enoughQuote
