Nvidia Shield TV pro and Shield TV Dongle 2020 model

We all heard rumours, we all saw some leaks but this time is official. We have the first official leaks of the two Nvidia Shield TV 2020 models that were pubblished by mistake on Amazon. And as a matter of fact we will have two different models. The first almost identical to the previous models as far as aesthetics are concerned and the second it is Nvidia’s response to the Amazon Firestick.

Nvidia Shield TV PRO 2020

Starting at $199 the brand new NVIDIA Shield TV Pro 2020 is powered by the Nvidia’s proprietary CPU, the Tegra X1+ processor. NVIDIA claims that it makes the SHIELD TV Pro 25 percent faster than its predecessor. The Tegra X1+ is now paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage as well.

Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2020

On the back of the New Shield TV Pro 2020 we find 2 X USB 3.0, an HDMI 2.0, a Gigabit Ethernet port and the same power in socket.

In addition to the new Tegra X1+ SoC, the SHIELD TV Pro expands the HDR support of the SHIELD TV with the inclusion of Dolby Vision HDR support along with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus. Another interesting feature is the HD to 4K upscaling using Artificial Intelligence. That is something that personally can’t wait to try since it looks very promising and this is Nvidia we are talking about.

Nvidia Shield TV Dongle

And here comes at $179 also the NVIDIA Shield TV Dongle. In a very compact device Nvidia brings the same CPU and same capabilities of the Nvidia Shield TV Pro, a part from the 2 X USB 3.0 and adds also a micro SD. Other than the AC WiFi as the bigger brother, the dongle will also have in the sam super-compact device a built-in power supply so essentialy you just need to attach the power cable to the device. Of course being a powerful device that it is, it will not be powered just by a USB cable as the Amazon Firestick. The perfomance gap is immense amaong the two devices as it is also the price.

New Remote Control

Both devices share the same remote control. I was a huge fan of the first remote control. The device and build quality was top notch (especially the model with the re-chargable battery) and it was only lacking in the volume department. That touch control was cool but in all honesty not so practical. In a bold move, Nvidia decided to rebuild the remote and the design feels strange in some extent. Instead of building on top of the very loved remote they decided to play it safe while adding a lot of buttons and dedicating a button to Netflix too. This time the remote comes with AAA batteries and also supports backlight. Great the addition of a remote finder so you will never lose your remote again. I will not share more on my feelings on the remote until I use it because knowing Nvidia I believe it is better than it looks.

Here Is The New Nvidia Shield TV Pro and the Nvidia Shield TV Dongle! 1

Nvidia Shield TV 2020 Price and Availablity

As metioned before, the two models come at a very interesting price. The Nvidia Shield TV pro sales for $199 which is the same price as the Nvidia Shield TV when it first launched 4 years ago. The Nvidia Shield TV Dongle will beat the price of the predecessor for $179 which is the price that the “old” model costs right now on Amazon. Both devices will launch on October 28th and I can’t wait to test them both. The devices were both list on Amazon but now the listing has been removed.

Android TV comes without a Web Browser

Android TV can also be used to browse the web. Unfortunately, no browser comes pre-installed on the stock version of the operating system. Which is the best browser for Android TV? Since this is a question that a lot of people keep asking me, I’ve decided to do this video.

Best Web Browser For Android TV


Android TV is designed by Google who else have the Chrome Browser. But you will not find Chrome in an Android TV device. Even though this is a strange take from Google, we are very fortunate to have an amazing browser by a third part.
The web browser in this video is in my opinion the best web browser on Android TV. It gives you access to any website on the internet with great performance. It is also fully controlled with the remote. And can also download files on your device! What more you need from a Web Browser on Android TV to be the best?

Get it from:
http://shrsl.com/1f8jr – Use the coupon DMiBoxS for a lower price $53.99 ($16 OFF!)

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Review & Benchmark

The Xiaomi Mi Box S is the successor of the previous Android TV Box best seller, the Xiaomi Mi Box 3. The Mi Box S, also called Xiaomi Mi Box 4 in China, is an updated but yet very similar version of the previous model. It comes to fill in the gap between the NVIDIA Shield TV and the Amazon FireTV Stick. With it’s price and performance, it does exactly that. Offers a great alternative as an Android TV OS device, with a built-in ChromeCast UHD and great 4K HDR performance on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Kodi, Hulu, Youtube, Plex, etc.

The Xiaomi runs Android TV, and unlike the Android mobile OS, this particular platform doesn’t have a thousand different micro-variations depending on manufacturer. Android TV is almost identical whether you run it on a NVIDIA Shield TV or a Sony Bravia TV or as in our case, a Mi Box S. In the particular the Xiaomi Mi Box S is powered by Android 8.1.0 Oreo out of the box.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box 8.1 Oreo

With a good score on Antutu v6, unfortunately the 3D engine of Antutu version 7 kept crashing on the Xiaomi Mi Box S. It got an average of just below 35000 and on GeekBench it scored 645 on single-core and 1804 on multi-core.

Great also the performance of the Dual Band WiFi 2.4G and 5G ac of the Xiaomi Box S maxing out my internet speed 180 – 20 MB.

Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K HDR Android TV Box Review & Benchmark 4

Overall it has a great performance, superb 4K playback on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video which you have to sideload in order to install it but make sure to install the Android TV version (not the one for the mobiles). Also on KODI 18 Leia it will play any kind of format 4K UHD without issues. The response of the device is always excellent and overall you will have a more than enjoyable experience.

The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is now available to buy in a new bundle which delivers more on the Android TV device’s smart home capabilities. The main difference is the inclusion of a Samsung’s SmartThings Link dongle. The NVIDIA SHIELD TV Smart Home Edition is available to buy now from Amazon, and is priced at $219.99 in the US.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV "Smart Home Edition" is out 7

The SmartThings Link usb dongle for the NVIDIA SHIELD became available in late 2017, and so in reality this is not a new product. But now the bundle is listed on the official NVIDIA site allowing future owners to buy the products together instead of getting them separately. Truth be told, there doesn’t seem to be any financial incentive buying the bundle, as it’s priced exactly as the cost of the items if purchased separately. So for now this more of a convenience bundle, than anything else.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV "Smart Home Edition" is out 8

What makes SmartThings Link different is its size, as it is just a USB dongle that can be plugged into the back of the SHIELD as a usual USB dongle. Once done and connected, the SmartThings Link immediately becomes a smart hub for the home, allowing SHIELD owners the option to control and manage multiple smart devices (lights, outlets and more) from the SmartThings Link, in other words from the SHIELD Android TV. You can see a full list of all the supported products here: https://www.smartthings.com/products.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV "Smart Home Edition" is out 9So, for who is it for then? Well this bundle is specifically designed for those people who are looking for an immediate solution for both Android TV and a Smart Home Hub. Similar to the FireTV Cube by Amazon, with more power and fully compatible with Alexa. You can also buy each piece separately. In fact, as of right now the “SHIELD TV Gaming Edition” is selling curently for $179.99 (you actually get the gamepad for FREE!). Then you can always add on the $39.99 price for the SmartThings Link, the total comes in at $219.98 – the same cost as the Smart Home Edition which does not inclue with the NVIDIA Shield TV gamepad.

For less expensive video cards from a reputable Chinese brand: https://goo.gl/rkrNfD

With the rise of cryptocurrency mining, the price of video graphics cards has exploded. At the same time there is no stock on most shelfs and online stores! So after a research I decided to buy from a Chinese brand which honestly I never heard of before. But i was also scared about ebay scams and fake gpu rumours that I’ve heard of. That made me look into the Chinese manufacturers and the Yeston brand in particular in order to find out if these video graphics cards are legit or not.
After using it daily on my computer for the past 4 months I am very excited about my decision and the Yeston GTX 1080 Nvidia graphics card is a great buy.
For now, I am waiting for the other parts of my new PC build in order to get the most of my GTX 1080 since this graphics card for my old is more powerful than it can handle.

NEW NVIDIA SHIELD

Starting from January 15th the brand-new NVIDIA Shield will start shipping! It has been announced today by the NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at CES 2017, who also revealed the new name: from NVIDIA Shield TV now it will be called just NVIDIA Shield. Quite honestly, that was the name that everyone called it already to be fair. The new Shield aesthetically seems to be exactly the same but smaller, way smaller! Also the main specs do not seem to differ that much. It seems that will come with the same Tegra X1 processor and the GPU will always be a 256-core but it is unclear whether it would be the Maxwell GPU as before. 3 Gb of RAM, Dual Band AC WiFi and included gamepad (new design, see below) & remote control with microphone for voice control and audio output that if sold separately (like now for the NVIDIA Shield TV) costs $59. The new NVIDIA Shield will be powered by Android N Nougat! Read more
