    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.

    Paul, is this anything close to what the nvidia shield tablet is rocking in terms of performance. I'm looking for a gaming tablet at the end of the year and have held of on this due to reviews I have read about weak build quality around "bezel" and the glass itself.

    Yes the Tegra Shield Table does have the Tegra K1 (32 bit) processor. The 64-bit Denver version was just recently discussed and I'm sure will be making its appearance very soon. In what exactly I'm not positive.

    As for the mentioned issues, I will see what I can come up with regarding the bezel and glass issues.

    Overall from what I've been reading its quite a tablet and does deserve its place in the top runners for tablets especially with the hardware under the hood Price too, is very enticing compared to the competing tablets in a much higher price range.

    If what I have read is localized and not "known issues" I am definitely buying this.

    I don't think you will be disappointed either, especially if you have a home computer setup with one of the GE Force GPU cards and can take full advantage of game streaming and the other goodness the Shield Tablet offers.

    Please do stop back by and let us know what you think once you spend a little time with it. We'd love to hear your feedback.

    Well I only have a laptop as of now. Nothing fancy at all. But, I was seriously contemplating making the jump from ps3 to steam on computer. Makes me feel nervous though like when I switched from Apple to Android (3yrs ago). Let me know if my comments are getting off topic, don't want to "dirty" the thread.

    Not at all. As long as you're still discussing the SoC it's all good
    Anyway...the Tegra K1 is supposed to have similar performance to the SoC in the PS3 and X360, which is impressive for a mobile chip. You can easily get a far more powerful desktop to game on than what it would cost to buy a PS4 if that's something you were planning on getting soon.

    So your saying i can get a rig (sans moniter) for pc gaming games like Skyrim (running numerous mods at once) for under $400 USD? The tablet is more for my wife to game ("mystery Manor meltdown clue finder deluxe" or whatever they're called") but, I want to be able to pick up the tablet and play a game more suited for me, or even use that streaming feature. I mean if it was just for her I could probably skate with an iRulu or something. But, with me contemplating changing ecosystems in gaming, why not choose a tablet that will or can integrate itself into that ecosystem as much as possible.

    Yeah, you can get a pretty decent build for $400-500. Then with the tablet you can use it sort of like a console and you can play anywhere in your house while your desktop does all of the work
    I wouldn't recommend an iRulu tablet, btw. Some horror stories just from reading the forums here

    Yeah, getting an iRulu would be like buying retreads for my car. Imo.
