NVIDIA Shield 2 launching next year with the NVIDIA Logan SoC

NVIDIA Shield

The NVIDIA Shield gaming console has been widely successful through its very limited release, and the company has already expressed optimism in launching a successor. The CEO of NVIDIA, Jen-Hsun Huang, while speaking to Engadget, gave out hints of a Shield 2 being launched in the future. He reiterated that this console will run on the NVIDIA Logan platform which is currently being developed by the company. This chip will come bundled with support for OpenGL 4.3 apparently, which is set to be a standard in Android gaming.

The launch of the Shield 2 is still a long way from now, as the Shield made its way to the market only recently. But we can expect to find snippets of the Shield 2 coming our way as we head into 2014. The original Shield packs a 5 inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip, Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a full set of gaming controls including a D-Pad and a large 7,350 mAh battery.
