What could be Nvidia’s second generation Shield console makes a benchmark run on AnTuTu
It’s been a little less than nine months since Nvidia released its Shield handheld game console to the public, and while there have been software updates since then, there’s already talk of a second generation model with improved hardware. While this hasn’t been confirmed as the real deal, news of aShield 2 making a benchmarking run at AnTuTu is making the rounds. Care to venture a guess about its hardware?
According to the benchmark stats, which was first noticed by gforgames.com, the supposed Shield 2 wields an Nvidia Tegra K1 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz with a Kepler GPU comprised of 192 CUDA cores. The System-on-Chip (SOC) is flanked by 4GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.
The screen resolution is listed at 1440×810, which could indicate that 90 pixels in height are taken up by the on-screen navigation bar. Rounding out the spec sheet is a 0.3MP front-facing camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The device scored 44,500 points in the AnTuTu benchmark.
A typo in the spec sheet on AnTuTu gets our BS meter tingling, so take this one with a dash of salt.
