What do you guys know about the Shield? Rumor has it that there's going to be a Shield Portable with an X1 inside. The only thing I got is its codename is Loki.
I was just going to make it my emulator machine, and shield-only games isn't too bad either. But I'm getting sick of buying things and getting cucked when they announce an upgraded version a month later.
The ribbon cable is literal shit and I can't find a single replacement part for it. Pisses me off, can't fucking use it anymore. The screen genuinely is small for most things. The triggers feel good but sometimes they'll get stuck down or stick just far enough to be constantly activated so you can't use the mouse joystick control without constantly clicking. It's alright for emulators but nothing much else. I miss when my ribbon cable wasn't busted, and the triggers worked right, it's bretty gud.
I was interested for a minute, then I noticed it only *streams* pc games, it doesn't actually run them.
>quad-core ARM A15 CPU
That means I can't install Mint on it.
Any similar hardware with an x86?
Nvidia has pulled some fucked up shit last year with the 3.5 shit, gameworks proprietary shit, not supporting kepler cards and overall trying to get games to run bad on everything but the 900 series.
As a nvidia guy since the GeForce 4, I'm gonna be making the switch to amd once dx12 cards are out
I'm asking if Nvidia is going to announce a Shield Portable 2 or something because there are rumors saying "Nvidia codename Loki" is suppose to be it. I just wanna know if anyone else has more information.
Might as well just attach your phone to your controller considering it's no less bulky.
The first Snapdragon 820 phones hit soon, which outperform the X1 and the X1 emulates Gamecube/Wii in a playable fashion.
Mg LG G4 has better :^)
That perhaps helps the chip achieve that high 83,774 grade. The Snapdragon 820 is expected to power next year's flagship devices, some of which will most likely sport 2K or even 4K screens. In comparison, the NVIDIA Tegra X1, still considered one of the beefiest in the market, only scores around 75,000 on AnTuTu.
But that's what I'm saying. Antutu tests are kind of outdated when it comes to modern Android hardware and for more powerful systems it's more reliable to use 3DMark.
Even though it's well possible the Snapdragon 820 has more CPU power with the new Kryo technology, it definitely won't be in GPU power, and Phones often throttle themselves down for cooling purposes.
