General info

1.Is region free
Nvidia Shield
Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
2.thickness

57mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.width

158mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.height

135mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.weight

579g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.9GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.shading units

72

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
4.internal storage

16GB

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.

Nvidia Shield
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Nvidia Shield
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
3.has an external memory slot
Nvidia Shield
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Nvidia Shield
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.has an HDMI output
Nvidia Shield
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.

Controllers

1.number of analog sticks

2

The more analog sticks, the more complex the input can be.
2.number of buttons

12

The more buttons the device has, the more complex the input can be.

Features

1.pixel density

294ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.screen size

5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.resolution

1280 x 720px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
4.has a touch screen
Nvidia Shield
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Miscellaneous

1.Geekbench result

919

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2020)
