BBC reports Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is working on a new gaming system that runs on its high-end Tegra K1 processor. Nvidia, for its part, only says it has an "awesome new gaming product that is launching soon."
Like the Shield handheld console (launched last year, has seen limited sales), the rumored device runs Android games, and allows PCs sporting high-end Nvidia GPUs to stream games for playback on TV sets.
Engadget previously reported the Shield's successor will be a tablet. As with the Shield, Nvidia is likely looking to provide a proof-of-concept to drive interest in hardware requiring powerful mobile processors or PC GPUs.
