Nvidia Sheild is probably one of the best Android devices available as of now. It can stream content, emulate old school games and can also stream games from the Geforce Now Cloud services.

The device was  codenamed as “mdarcy.” Powered by the NVIDIA Tegra X1+ chip, it claims to be 25% faster than previous generations and is found in the new Nintendo Switch. The SHIELD TV Pro also has AI-enhanced upscaling to go from HD to 4K which is possible due to the new chip.

The Dolby Vision HDR, which is a step above HDR10 is present on the new Sheild. The special thing about Dolby Vision HDR is dynamic metadata. This metadata is essentially instructions for the TV display to make sure every scene is portrayed as accurately as possible. HDR10 only has static metadata, which covers the entire movie/TV show.

The Shield TV Pro has a brand new remote. There is a microphone for voice controls, motion-activated backlit buttons, an IR blaster for controlling TVs, Bluetooth, and a lost remote feature. It has buttons for power, menu, play, record, pause, forward, reverse, volume, voice commands, and direction pad.
