It looks like the NVIDIA Shield TV is about to get a much-needed refresh.


What you need to know

  • New variant of the NVIDIA Shield TV showed up on the Google Play Developer console.
  • Its codennamed mdarcy and is running Pie.
  • We could see an updated Tegra chipset powering the new device.

The NVIDIA Shield TV hasn’t received much in the way of updates following its launch all tthe way back in 2015, and although NVIDIA rolled out a new slimmer option, the internal hardware hasn’t changed between the two models.

It looks like we’re finally going to see a new model sometime this year, as a new variant of the Shield TV with codename mdarcy has showed up on the Google Play Developer console. As spotted by Android Police, the new model will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

NVIDIA Shield TV vs. NVIDIA Shield TV Pro: Which Should You Buy?

The current Shield TV is codenamed darcy, and while it is still one of the best Android TV boxes money can buy, NVIDIA will be looking to update the aging platform. It looks like the upcoming Shield TV will feature a newer t210b01 version of the Tegra X1 chipset that has better power usage and higher clocks for the GPU, according to the folks over at XDA.

We’ll have to wait and see what NVIDIA has in store with the Shield TV refresh, but in the meantime, what would you like to see from the device? Sound off in the comments below.
