Nvidia is the latest company fighting for some shelf space in your living room. The Santa Clara based brand most known for their graphics processing units is gearing up for the release of a gaming media console dubbed the Nvidia Shield Android TV Console.

Announced at the Game Developers Conference, this device will be the world’s first 4K Android-based TV console. Under the hood is an Nvidia Tegra X1 processor paired with a 256-core Nvidia Maxwell GPU and 3GB RAM to handle your media needs. But it does a whole lot more than give you the ability to watch TV and movies. Thanks to the integration of Nvidia’s Grid service, users will have the ability to stream PC-quality games directly to the device. What games, you ask? Well right now there are 50-plus games to choose from including the likes of Borderlands: Pre-Sequel, Crysis 3 and Doom 3 BF Edition among others. With any luck, this could become the Netflix of gaming, or at least that’s what the company is hoping for. The console will be released this May, and will retail for $199.
