Nvidia’s Shield console can now stream games over the web

Promised two weeks ago and delivered today, Nvidia’s big April software update for Shield is highlighted by the introduction of remote game streaming. Until now, the Android-powered handheld was capable of playing graphically intensive games that were being processed by and streamed out of your home PC, but it required that both devices be on the same network. Though still in beta as of now, the remote version of Nvidia’s GameStream offers to do the same wherever you are, provided there’s a fast enough internet connection. What’s more, Nvidia is enabling GameStream from laptops as well, with its latest graphics chips being supported.

Android gaming consoles have interested device makers for a while now, but none of the attempts so far…

audi-infotainment-1631One of the biggest rumors leading up to CES was a partnership between Google and Audi; that came true, but the power behind it all is NVIDIA.

MSI Unveils First 3K Gaming Notebook

msigt60

MSI is gearing up for next month’s CES with a look at their new 3K notebooks (for those unfamiliar with the term “3K,” it refers to the number of horizontal pixels on a display–meaning that both 3K, and the more traditional 4K displays, offer a huge upgrade in video quality).  The GT60 series comes in both gaming and workstation flavors, with 2880×1620 resolution on a 15.6″ display. To put that in perspective, that’s better resolution than a Retina Display iPad and is a comparable 16:9 version of the Retina Display Macbook Pro. Combine that with the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M GPU, and a 128GB SSD plus 1TB HDD, and you’re looking at a mobile rig that will be completely unmatched for visuals on PC.

The GT60 gaming and GT60 Workstation with 3K displays are currently available for $2,199.99 and $2,799.99 respectively, and you can find more info after the jump.

First up, if you purchase a GTX 780 Ti/780/770 this holiday season, you’ll get a free copy of Batman: Arkham Origins, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, plus $100 off the purchase of NVIDIA’s SHIELD console; purchasing a GTX 760/660 will get you Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, plus $50 off the price of SHIELD.
