The New Nvidia Shield is Now For Sale At Best Buy





Nvidia Shield New

Looking for the new Nvidia Shield? The still unannounced new Nvidia Shield and Nvidia Shield Pro are now both showing up for sale in Best Buy stores. According to multiple reports, online customers have been finding the new Nvidia Shields for sale in Best Buy stores around the United States as of yesterday. Now you won’t find the Nvidia Shield listed for sale online, but if you want a new one you may want to check your local Best Buy store.

The $149.99 version comes with 8 GB of storage, Android TV, a micro SD card slot, and an Nvidia Tegra X1+ processor. Sadly though this does not seem to be a stick like a Roku or Fire TV stick as it has a standard HDMI port on the device and it is over 6″ long.

The $199.99 version comes with 3GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage along with a new Tegra X1 processor, two USB 3.0 ports, and 4K Dolby Vision HDR along with Dolby Atmos sound. Now it is very possible that a second version with more storage will also be sold but was not listed on Amazon. The new remote comes with a motion-activated backlit button, lost-remote locator, IR for TV control, and Nvidia is switching from a built-in rechargeable and the watch-like batteries to now use 2 AAA batteries to power the remote. You will also find a newly added Netflix quick launch button on the remote.

This is not the first time Best Buy has sold an unannounced streaming player. Last year Best Buy put the new Chromecast up for sale over a week before Google announced the new player, only to take it off the sale floors a few days later. If you’re planning on buying this new device now you may want to hurry before they get pulled from Best Buy shelves.

Here is a quick breakdown of the new stick like $149.99 Nvidia Shield:
