A possible new Nvidia Shield may arrive with a specific approach to Google Stadia

As we all know, Google has been developing its own video game streaming system for a while, this platform is called Stadia. The intention of this new service is to be able to bring the highest level gaming to people who do not have a purchasing power to allow a computer powerful enough to run the latest games with their latest generation graphics.
Google saves the day.
The idea of Google is to communicate your computer, tablet, smartphone or even television with a central prepared with high-end CPUs and GPUs capable of running any game at maximum graphic quality without any problem and at 4K, 60 FPS. All this will be possible through a stable Internet connection. According to Google, the connection you will need for this will go from 5 Mb / s to play HD, 60 FPS to 35 Mb / s for 4K, 60 FPS.
In my opinion, I find very low figures for that resolution and SPF rate, I think that at the moment of truth you will need at least a 50 Mb / s connection. But this is only speculation, and if a company can achieve something like that, it is Google, which in terms of software and optimization are the kings.
Nvidia GeForce Now
Google Stadia is not the first to harness the power of another computer through the Internet. Nvidia GeForce Now, is an identical service in concept to Google Stadia with the same operation, a monthly payment that gives you access to the games it offers, to which you play through the Internet with your Mac, Windows or Shield TV. This service was released in the beginning of 2018 with a gradual deployment, right now it is available in many countries, but it has a problem, it is still a BETA.
So you can say that Nvidia already has experience in this type of products. It seems that, according to leaks, they will be working on a new Nvidia Shield with a special focus on Stadia. And what is an Nvidia Shield? It is a product that works similar to a console but nurtured with Android and Google and Amazon services. It's a mix between a media player in the style of a Xiaomi Mi Box TV, a home automation control similar to Amazon's Echo product portfolios and a console like Microsoft's Xbox. The truth is that it is an excellent product but perhaps it was becoming slightly obsolete and still without a renovation, but it seems that the wait is over.
This upgrade will bring an improvement in the SOC, with the new Tegra X1 T210, with four ARM Cortex-A57 cores with a frequency of 1.9 GHz and another four ARM Cortex-A53 with a frequency of 1.3 GHz. From this new SOC expects above all an improvement in energy efficiency compared to the previous version. This new product is codenamed "mdarcy". It will also come with an improvement in the GPU, carrying a 1000 MHz Nvidia Maxwell with 2 GB of RAM.
Not much more is known about this renovation, but we will inform you as the information comes out.
