Shield portable 2 powered by Tegra X1
« on: January 12, 2017, 06:46:29 am »
FCC has released the docs for Nvidia Shield Portable 2 codename Loki. Tegra X1 is confirmed, 5,66inch screen. I really have no idea of what Nvidia is doing. Common why didn't they announce it at CES last week ???? I guess that Nintendo Switch deal has something to do with it...

Would have been nicer if they brought this out when the X1 chip was released.

I doubt it, those docs are 6  months old.  My gut feeling is that they canceled the Shield Portable 2 once they got the contract for the Switch.  I also suspect Nvidia stopped selling the K1 to JXD because of the Switch

Totally agree with you. And me too they would have had my money for this one... I guess some Nvidia engineers are having fun playing Dolphin on their prototype shield portable 2

Dolphin is not precisely great in tegra x1. I have a shield TV and only some games work ok, most of them are slow. Gpd win runs dolphin better indeed.
Anyhow, would be nice if they release It. The more choice the better, I Hope dpad is better than shield cintroller's one though, which is quite bad for me.

@skelton

So, out of all the emulation handhelds you have used, which is your favorite and why?

Gpd x.d because it's size is ideal and gpd win because it runs emus that are not in Android (model 2 and 3 emus, taito type x, better mame....).
First shield portable is nice Too, but it was Too heavy for my taste. Also, some emus run worse than gpd x.d (Saturn for example).

The New and old shield TV/tablet also directly compete with the switch so Im not sure if this is a cancelled product or something thats coming. One more reason why the k1 may have been stopped on the JXD is because they plan to release a new portable.
