Speculation for CES 2018 - Shield TV
  1 / 4    
Nvidia gives their presentation tonight at CES! I would/imagine they have something up their sleeves for Shield TV despite it being an almost perfect streamer. I am hoping for support of Dolby Vision ... You?!

My guess: - We won't hear a whole lot about the Shield TV. They already did a re-launch and it just doesn't take off. - At best, they will simply present the new Oreo launcher and re-introduce the Spot, which will be released in the US only. (of course) - Don't expect any new major features. No Dolby Vision, nor anything like that. Maybe some minor licensing deals for Geforce Now, but that's about it. Nvidia really gave it all with the Shield family and Android in general, but the gamble just didn't paid off. Granted, Nvidia is making so much money with their GPU business it's nowhere nearly enough to put the company at risk; they can afford to lose tons of money on recalls and extended support just for the sake of their reputation, but I'm pretty sure they are very tired of it. The portable bombed. They had tons of manufacturing problems with the tablet. Same with the SSHD-based Shield TV. The last non-Nvidia Android product to have sported a Tegra chip was.. The Nexus 9? They don't even have a modem division anymore nor any replacement solution to offer. Nvidia is DONE with Android.

Don't underestimate those screens. As they will be shipped with Android-TV, nvidia has to continue to support it for a while. So there is a good chance that they'll continue on the current Android-TV as well. As the builtin Android-TV is just a toy, I guess it will still be powered by the cheap but outdated X1, sadly. So no clue if/when nvidia will release a second generation of the Android-TV streaming box (no, the 2017 one is just a remake...)

A big fat year from CES 2017, safe to presume any hopes for the Spot is dead? I get that it was only a microphone, but ffs, that Samsung Smarththings dongle clashes. Marketing a white dongle for a black unit ?? Fk it, I'm not buying into it yet by Summer Amazon and Google will have their next models out and will revisit this whole voice thing.

Well, most people buy Shield TV, Apple TV, Roku etc. and use it for some time (as Shield and Apple TV are not cheap) so I don't think there is a need for new Shield TV, why? Tegra X1 + 3GB of RAM is more than enough for TV Box. I only hoped for Oreo update, but to me, it looks like Google problem because every new TV and Box still use Nougat and also Oreo launcher on Nexus Player is pretty bad.
