According to some news from the BBC, NVIDIA's upcoming refreshed Shield device might be capable of playing both Android and high-end PC games. In order to play high-end PC games, the new Shield would be linked up to a GeForce-powered PC, similar to how existing Shield's currently work.

The new Shield will reportedly have a cheap controller made available as a separate add-on, something that would make it a bit more accessible to gamers. It looks like we should expect NVIDIA's more-than-capable Tegra K1 chip to be powering the new portable gaming powerhouse, with an NVIDIA spokesperson claiming that the launch will take place soon for an "awesome new gaming product".
