Naw you didn't aim right or hit anything. All you did faust was show how childish and immature you are ,by running your ball washer starting crap with me and then playing victim when you are the cowardly aggressor that came attacking me along with others. I assure you that I am not mad at all. In fact I don't give two squirts of piss about anyone not adding to or disproving my guesses without undeniable proof. I have yet to see you or anyone else prove that Nvidia themselves have stated , and I quote ("that they will never make another Shield Portable!") And please as far as respect goes all you did was start attacking me after others already had, so I have zero respect for you bottom feeder.
Good to me, you are just a piece of Shit to me, attacking people and pretending later that we are the offenders.

So pity.

The first people just gave their point of view, but didn't worth anything for such proud little boy like you.

I won't give any proof to you because I don't give a Shit about you, really simple: my time is too expensive for you.


You better go to forum with people of your kind, you are just nuisance here.

Wow so not only are you an outright liar ,as it is clearly evident in this post that you yourself and others addressed/ attacked me first not the other way around faust. Yet again you provide no proof/evidence of any kind to prove one way or the other of there​ will or will not be another Shield Portable, just more petty attacks like the petty person you are. And do I detect racism with your people of my kind statement??  And the only Nuisance here is you.

Update the Nvidia Shield Tablet K1 is out of stock and has been for awhile. Also in the User Guide part of the Nvidia Shield Portable 2 FCC documents dated 1/18/2017 which is the user guide it clearly states Tegra X1 and shows this was updated after 7/15/2016.

My opinion, the Jan 2017 date which is listed as the "Date Submitted" - represents the 6 month confidentiality  period ending - thus the document then becoming available , ie not when it was updated.  The doc was created and made available to the FCC at 14/15 Jul 2016, 6 months later on Jan 18th it was made available after the well publicised 6 month confidentiality period ending.

Quote: "In mid-2016, NVIDIA submitted what appears to be a possible SHIELD Portable 2 device to the FCC for regulatory certification and all that jazz. Now that we’re in the first part of 2017, the short-term confidentiality request (180 days) has expired, meaning external photos of the device have surfaced on the FCC website."

Side note, I heard the Tegra K1 was discontinued by Nvidia a while ago.

Why would they launch this thing in Summer 2017 using a bunch of outdated 20nm parts? Sounds like they had a big old stockpile of Tegra X1 that they didn't know what to do with, so they had two plans; try to flog them to Nintendo on the cheap, or shove them into an updated Shield portable and try to get rid of them that way. The Nintendo plan panned out, so the new Shield got shelved.

While I was indeed wrong about the shield portable 2 launching this summer. Something is indeed about to happen as this Reddit user has a shield portable 2 in hand. Link below.

I think it's pretty clear that it's a prototype that a dev has offloaded now that it's canceled . I say that with some reservation, becuase I find the story on where he got it hard to believe.
If you have read Nvidia's financial reports lately, you would have seen they are making an absolute fortune from sales to Nintendo, there is no way they are going to risk that. It would be financial suicide.

Of course we also have proof of the tablet with X1 being canceld: https://www.technobuffalo.com/2016/08/11/nvidia-shield-2-tablet-cancelled/

The story below confirms the dev prototype for testing aspect

"We can also independently confirm that it is a developer unit that was never intended for public release, and was provided to game developers for testing."

I'm really tired of repeating this but yet again it needs to be stated. 'If Nvidia truly did not want to offend Nintendo, the company wouldn't still be selling the Nvidia Shield TV'; which is a true console aka box that connects to a tv and allows game-play on said tv with a controller. Not to mention the Shield TV features a Tegra X1 same chip powering the Nintendo Switch! So again until Nvidia states there will never be another Nvidia Shield Portable, I and others still have hope. Link below proving that the Nvidia Shield TV is still available making all of your points straight booty.

Give it up mate, they're not making a new Shield Portable. The first one had bloody awful sales figures.

That is normal. Nvidia didn't seem to care European users, so people from europe who wanted a shield portable would have to import it at a much higher price. But it seems Nvidia only likes dollars, not euros

There is a big difference between the Shield TV and Switch. The Shield TV doesn't compete with the Switch as it has no portable gaming aspect to it.  The shield portable on the other hand could be used exactly like the Switch can, ie as a portable or connected to the TV.

Tegra revenue for the last quarter was $333 million just from Tegra sales - primarily to Nintendo.  That's $1.3 Billion annually. I doubt they are going to risk that  on the comparitive pittance they got from shield portable sales.  if you saif they sold 200k portables at $250 each, thats $50mill over it's life time.  Compare that to the $800mill thats probably coming from Nintendo Tegra sales per annum.

Anyway, if they are going to release it, where is it.  It should have been released ages ago close to the FCC Filings.   IF it's still being released why the long long delay (like almost 2 years )?


Also of note, look at the best comment in the reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/6w6757/i_found_an_nvidea_shield_portable_2/

"Hey guys, a trusted source familiar with the matter told us it is a dev unit that will never be released (if that wasn't obvious already)."
