NVIDIA Announces GameStream for SHIELD, Launches October 28

nvidia ceo

Today, at a press event that took place in Montreal, NVIDIA’s CEO announced GameStream, a new standard for media streaming technology. GameStream combines the power of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX graphics cards and advanced WiFi technologies to deliver a super smooth, low latency gaming experience for mobile gamers. It’s not a device or a service you pay for, but it’s the PC game streaming service that is now out of Beta that SHIELD owners have used for about a month or so now.

Along with the release of GameStream comes expanded streaming support, including:

  • Super smooth and fast performance at 60 frames per second.
  • Enhanced Wi-Fi quality of service in combination with GameStream Ready routers from leading network partners ASUS, Buffalo, D-Link, and NETGEAR.
  • Improved onscreen navigation and controls

In addition, NVIDIA also announced a new capability called, SHIELD Console Mode, which turns your SHIELD unit into a full gaming and entertainment console on your big-screen TV. “Simply attach SHIELD to your HDTV via HDMI, pair it with a Nyko PlayPad Pro Bluetooth controller, and sit back on your couch and play your PC games with GameStream.”

SHIELD owners and users of a GeForce GTX-powered machine can expect to take advantage of this on October 28.

    Not really understanding this article and what this feature is…is it something that applies to Shield Owners only? My PC runs a GTX 570…does anything here apply to me?

      I’m guessing that this software will only stream to Shield devices, but since Shield runs Android, it wouldn’t be too hard to find an alternative. In fact, there are alternatives available that will steam to any capable Android device. I can’t remember what the other software is called but it also utilizes the G-Force chipset.

      I saw a video of someone playing Diablo II on their phone and they were using it. I’ll try and find it but it should t be too hard with aa good Google search.

      For people who own a Shield device and a GTX 600 or 700 series graphics card, you can stream games from your PC to the Shield, and now your TV.

        Well, I guess the story here is it’s no longer just the Shield but I imagine they’ll have to use Tegra 4+ chipsets.

    It’s gonna be a year almost since the shield was announced, and not until now are we seeing this.

      The SHIELD shipped with a beta version of this. It was pretty rough but functional at first, after the last few driver/SHIELD updates it been perfectly smooth for me. I personally bought the SHIELD for the PC streaming features, I couldn’t care less about Android gaming beyond a few puzzle and tower defense games.

    Not to mention, “up to $100 off SHIELD” starting Oct 28 to celebrate the launch.
