The Nvidia Shield has been one of the more impressive dedicated portable gaming platforms we've seen recently, but it's also been out for quite some time. As we all know, technology has a pretty short shelf life. In an interview with Engadget back in October, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that we should expect a second generation of the Shield soon. Now it seems that there's an official FCC filing detailing some of the key bits of the Shield 2. The document refers to the device as the "P2570," very similar to the current Shield's model number of "P2450."
Comparing the two suggests that the update is a sleeker, albeit more aggressive design. It's not much, but the filing shows that it'll run a bit lighter than the original, use a Tegra K1 chip, and likely will have a higher screen resolution. It also seems that the device is finished and ready to go, so it shouldn't be too much longer before we start seeing them on store shelves.
