The newest generation of SHIELD TV is here. NVIDIA announced the SHIELD TV ($149) and SHIELD TV Pro ($199) today, both of which are powered by the new Tegra X1+ processor. It provides a 25-percent performance boost over the older units, allowing for improved 4K video upscaling and Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos support.
SHIELD TV has a slim, stealthy design meant to disappear by blending in with, or behind, entertainment centers. It also has Gigabit Ethernet and dual-band Wi-Fi for lightning-fast connectivity.
SHIELD TV Pro takes entertainment to the next level for the most demanding users. It is based on the previous generation’s iconic, sleek design and comes with additional memory and storage, plus two USB ports for running a Plex Media Server and connecting high-capacity hard drives or other USB devices.
