NVIDIA releases 5.1 Lollipop update for 2-year old Tegra Note 7

Before there was the powerful NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, there was the NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 – launched in 2013, and still going strong for its users these days. If any of you still own one, you probably can testify to the robustness of the specs that keep this tablet working to this day. And there’s some good news for you, too. This week, NVIDIA released the update that will take the NVIDIA SHIELD Portable gaming console to Android 5.1. Together with this update is the good news – an Android 5.1 update for the Tegra Note 7 as well.

SHIELD Portable receives Android 5.1 Lollipop update

Dolphin Emulator for Android to take advantage of 64-bit ARM technology

If you haven’t heard of Dolphin Emulator or are not sure of what it is really, we actually wouldn’t be surprised. Dolphin Emulator is a niche crowd type of software – originally an open-source emulator for Nintendo Gamecube and Nintendo Wii games on a Windows platform. Now they’ve been trying to bring the emulator to Android – “try” being the operative word – but the project has floundered so far because of the basic lack of computing power available on Android devices. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

BRAWL is basically Bomberman, violently re-imagined

If you grew up in our generation, then you will understand what Bomberman is – that cute game with the animated bomb-laying guy out to finish a seemingly endless number maze levels against similarly cartoon-y villains. It was actually lots of fun. So take that, and then mix it with a horrible slasher movie like “Saw” or “Friday the 13th” and that’s basically what BRAWL is – a fun take on the old maze classic, but very much an adult game for the violence.

Acer to launch first all-in-one Chromebase computer this month

Doom 3 DFG now on Android, NVIDIA SHIELD devices only

The NVIDIA SHIELD has yet to prove that it can be a gaming device of your choice. It's an Android TV-powered device which means only Android apps and games can run on it. NVIDIA has recently announced that Doom 3 will be coming to Android together with other games and now it has arrived. Doom 3 requires power and the NVIDIA Tegra X1 mobile processor could handle the game on the NVIDIA SHIELD.

The Talos Principle arrives for Tegra-powered Android devices

There’s nothing secret anymore about “The Talos Principle” – everybody who follows gaming news will know what this introspective-slash-philosophical puzzle game is all about. The game has been out for the PC platform for a year now, so we know exactly what to expect. Still, it doesn’t take away the excitement that this great game is now out for Android.

NVIDIA releases AndroidWorks for Android game development

NVIDIA has been one of the big forces behind Android these past few years, providing the powerful processing technology for high-performance Android devices such as Google’s Project Tango, coming up with their own robust Android gaming tablet in the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, and recently venturing into the world of Android TV with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV console. That trend continues with NVIDIA now streamlining its game development for Android with a new tool suite called AndroidWorks.
