New Nvidia blog demos Project Shield AFK capability

Nvidia has kicked off the first in a regular blog updating gamers on the latest developments with its highly anticipated Tegra 4-powered Project Shield gaming handheld. The first demonstration, following its surprise CES debut, focuses on its AFK (Away From Keyboard) PC gameplay extending capabilities. In the demo, Nvidia highlights how the handheld gaming device can stream Borderlands 2 from a GeForce GTX-enabled PC for remote gaming.

In the video, the Project Shield device is connected to a Falcon Tiki PC with a GeForce GTX 680. Although the graphics processing its being handled offboard, the Project Shield is able to play the game without any noticeable lag and at 60 frames per second. The capability is enabled via an Android app that Nvidia will release when the console becomes available for sale later this year.

Nvidia's next-generation Tegra 4 mobile processor will power the Project Shield, which is the first to feature the first quad-core iteration of ARM's Cortex-A15 CPU. 72 smaller graphics cores will supplement the CPU. The device centers on a 5-inch display with a 1280x720 resolution, while ports on the device include HDMI, USB, and a microSD slot.
