It certainly appears that way.</p> <p>A new entry from the Global Certification Forume (the organisation that handles certification for 3GPP, the standards body for 3G devices) lists a 4G LTE device called &ldquo;SHIELD Tablet&rdquo; with Nvidia as the manufacturer. That ties in nicely with last year&rsquo;s brief sighting of a device called &ldquo;Nvidia Mocha&rdquo; &ndash; a tablet with a 7.9in 2048 x 1536 screen and Tegra K1 processor.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A duo device? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Nvidia already has an Android tablet in the form of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/nvidia-tegra-note-worlds-fastest-7in-tablet/news">Tegra Note</a>, but a Shield-branded slate would likely be pitched more towards dedicated gamers. Now, we know what you&rsquo;re thinking: why buy a tablet for gaming when the regular Nvidia Shield plays Android games and comes with a proper hardware controller? A touchscreen isn&rsquo;t the most agile or natural way to control games. Well, there&rsquo;s some speculation that the Nvidia Shield Tablet will come with an add-on gamepad that locks or docks with the slate and provides that precision control.</p> <p>Rumour has it Nvidia may unveil the Shield Tablet later in July, so we may have a clearer idea about how this device will shape up in the coming weeks.

Nvidia&#39;s even likening the performance of the K1 to your old Xbox 360 or PS3, but we&#39;ll reserve judgement until we&#39;ve had an extended play on a K1 device.</p> <p>The &quot;super chip&quot;, as Nvidia is calling it, will be coming in two variants: a 32-bit, 2.3GHz &ldquo;4-plus-1&rdquo; core ARM A15, and 64-bit 2.5GHz dual Super Core processor, codenamed Denver. (Those 192 cores we spoke of earlier are dedicated to graphics - the dual cores and quad cores here are general processing cores).</p> <p>Playing PC games on an Intel Core-powered&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/microsoft/microsoft-surface-pro-2/review">Surface Pro 2</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/razer/razer-edge-pro/review">Razer Edge Pro</a>&nbsp;tends to have us reaching for a power cable pretty snappy but the Kepler architecture should mean mobile gaming for longer too.

And that's just for the PC – you'll still need the 4K monitor. Let's throw in the 31.5in Asus PQ321Q – which is estimated to be around RM11,000. If you've got any change left over you might think about adding a keyboard and mouse to that too.</p> <p>Around RM32,000 is a lot of money. Considering the PS4 will be around RM1800 and you'll already have a TV to play it on, that's quite a jump. That 4K gaming PC on its own is over 10 times the price of the PS4.
