This evening the folks from NVIDIA have released a video for what will be known as PC Mondays. Each Monday they’ll be showing an impressive PC Game or something similar running on their new Project Shield Android-powered gaming device. For the gamers around these parts today they have Borderlands 2, one graphically intensive game looking just beautiful on their Tegra 4 powered gaming device. Check it out below.
Borderlands 2 is one of the better looking PC games available today, and luckily for NVIDIA they’ve got it on Project Shield. Obviously a Tegra 4 can’t handle those graphics but thanks to Shield being able to stream from a nearby NVIDIA PC, which happens to have the latest top-tier NVIDIA graphics card, this particular gamer is enjoying this shooter on the go with the most amazing graphics you’d ever expect.
NVIDIA posted a blog post with a few additional details, and wants to let everyone know just how the term “AFK” will never be the same thanks to Project Shield. For those that aren’t gamers, AFK stands for away from keyboard. Now with Project Shield if nature calls just pull out your Shield and stream the game, it’s that easy. Here’s the video:
This is a top-tier PC gaming experience being enjoyed and streamed in the palm of your hands folks. All thanks to the NVIDIA Tegra 4, Project Shield, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. You’ll notice in the video just how fast the actual gaming experience is even while streaming, with the PC in the background showing nearly the exact same image. When this hits mainstream if streaming is that fast, NVIDIA will have a winner.
Stay tuned for more details and don’t forget to check out our Tegra Hub for more gaming goodness. Hopefully this launches in Q2 as NVIDIA’s predicted. I can’t wait to get my hands on one — again.[via NVIDIA Blog]
