NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro and Kodi are a match made in heaven. For starters, The SHIELD offers an unprecedented performance thanks to its Tegra X1 processor.With its 256 GPU cores, multi-core 64-bit CPUs, and unbeatable 4K video capabilities, it’s the most advanced mobile processor ever created, delivering 34x better performance than Apple TV, and 8x better performance than Amazon Fire TV. It’s one only a handful of Android TV boxes that can display 4K H.265 and VP9 video content at 60 frames per second and do it without even breaking a sweat.

Note:  NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro doesn’t explain what hardware configuration it adopts, and sells at a very high price. We note that if it show the hardware truth, many people many compare it with other Chinese products. So, this is a smart point of NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro .

Besides its beastly specifications, NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro is also any audiophile’s dream. According to NVIDIA, the TV box lets you pass-through Dolby Digital Plus (5.1 and 7.1) to a receiver, placing you right in the center of the action. Many lesser Android TV boxes use the same audio processing chip as your smartphone does.That might be okay for a pair of headphones, but your living room loudspeakers deserve something better.

Perhaps the best thing about NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro is the pair of included controllers. They both feature Google’s revolutionary voice search technology, and they are both equally amazing. One is meant for gaming, while the other one is compact and optimized for multimedia consumption.

time.
