NVIDIA SHIELD Gets the Teardown Treatment


We just got done posting our complete NVIDIA SHIELD review, and like clockwork, iFixIt has posted their form of a review – a complete device teardown! The teardown is a great way of seeing exactly what is inside the SHIELD, making it such a powerful gaming machine. Besides NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 processor, we get eyes on with some Samsung memory chips, SK Hynix RAM, the SHIELD’s interesting battery configuration and the springs that control the triggers. Remember, don’t try this at home.

For folks who do their own tinkering, you might be saddened to learn that SHIELD only scored a 6 out of 10, making it a not-so-easy device for self repair. That’s still better than the HTC One, which scored a 1 out of ten.

    I am curious if anyone is even remotely interested in this device. Not just because is is MotoChristmaX day, but in general. I think this thing is pretty ugly and way too bulky for me. I would even feel a little stupid pulling this sucker out on the airplane to play it whereas no one looks silly playing on a tablet.

    Unless there’s a Moto X tucked inside then I don’t want to hear about it. 🙂
