Nvidia Shield technical specifications and Assassin’s Creed 3 4K TV video

We reported earlier how Nvidia announced a new portable gaming system called the Shield at CES 2013.

The complete technical specifications of the said console are in and it’s quite impressive at least when you compare to a similar handheld like the PlayStation Vita. It is a 5 inch Android-based gaming system that runs on a Tegra 4 quad-core processor, and the display has a 720p resolution.

The controller actually houses all the components that powers this console, and is a pretty impressive work out art when you consider it has a HDMI port that can power a 4k TV as well. By power I mean, display an image with enough quality to not look pixelated on the screen.

We also have the said video for the same where you can see Haytham Kenway from Assassin’s Creed 3 running around, and it looks gorgeous on a 4k TV. The console can also stream games to your TV, which is what the Assassin’s Creed 3 demonstration was all about.

Here’s a full size picture of how the Shield actually looks like.
