Didn't the First Nexus 7 have a tegra chip & so did the HTC one X - Both of them ran like ****.

I'm not impressed with the fact they are using Tegra chips - the HTC One X was a nightmare to root & rom due to the tegra chip.

Poor show google.

If you take into account that these are custom made, not just standard arm processors that they used from previous version.

Basically, these K1 Denver chips are like Apples A8 Chips.

This won't be the same as the Tegra 3/4.

The shield tablet is very easy to root with towel root! Btw with the devs that are going to be here it's going to be a piece of cake. Have some faith!

I am keen to try it first hand though. I had a Tegra 2 device and a Tegra 3 (that was the nexus 7) and both were disappointing
Plus, Tegra is quite closed source. So maybe don't expect any miracle hacks

One thing though, supposedly NVIDIA have really lifted with their mobile SOCs, the Tegra4 was decent. I see this is both HTC and NVIDIA getting back into the Android market (well HTC into the tablet) and this could be risky. Because since the Tegra2 and 3 were a flop, all vendors allmost went with QUALCOMM last year and this year

I am confident it will be do-able

After all that is why I bought the shield tablet.

Same as I feel,SD slot really is a deal breaker...

Plus,with the 399 price point I can buy a full set of Shield Tablet+Controller+Case

But I'm still willing to buy Nexus 9 if it had a sd slot

By the way this is a bit off topic but how is Shield Tablet's screen quality?

I'm considering to buy it but I read some reviews said its screen is good but the color saturation is just average
