    Interesting to see a review of this so close to the news about Vulkan: the two seem practically made for each other. Vulkan for Android and an affordable but high performance Android gaming machine could be a killer combination...

    To me this seems like the kind of device that people buy, use once or twice and then never touch again.

    Re: Nvidia Shield TV

    I'm probably, somehow, the target audience for this. I've just bought a 980TI to go in a nice gaming rig, but don't want to be banished to the back room every time I play a game. It'd also be nice to use our big TV for gaming with friends, etc. Plus I was already tempted to buy a chromecast/media streamer for our Netflix and iPlayer habits.

    This seems to do this better than anything other single solution on the market, or am I missing one?

    "Nvidia duly clocks the X1 in at 1GHz, giving the complete SoC a 1TFLOP-plus rating" surely that can't be right ? my shield tablet runs at 2.2ghz and it uses the older k1 chip.

    I saw this and also thought it seemed a bit slow, considering the rated freq speed of most mobile phones nowadays.

    Yea they are different beasts, but it still doesn't seem right.

    I think the 1GHz is the speed of the gpu portion not the cores...

    The best thing for low power gaming would be an Intel CPU with NVIDIA graphics cores. Not likely to happen, but I don't think anything else could come close.
