It’s common knowledge that the streaming world has been dominated by Apple and Roku for some time now, leaving the door (somewhat) open for another big-name manufacturer to step in. While there have been a number of promising entries into the genre, few can match the sheer stopping power of NVIDIA’s latest reveal — the Shield TV streaming system.

Calling upon the manufacturer’s all-new Tegra X1+ processor, the Shield TV streaming device has been lauded as the world’s most powerful Android TV streaming media player, thanks to the utilization of Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos surround sound. Have a 4K TV, but watch most of your content in HD? Don’t worry, the Shield boasts cutting-edge 4K upscaling tech, thanks to its powerful AI enhancement. Somehow, it manages to fit a Gigabit Ethernet port, dual-band AC Wi-Fi, a built-in power supply, and a microSD card slot into one super-sleek enclosure, allowing it to stream Netflix, Amazon Video, Disney+ and Vudu in 4K HDR resolution, without taking up too much space in your entertainment center. There’s also the standard voice control suite, courtesy of Google’s built-in Assistant, as well as an all-new remote for intuitive task mapping. Head to Amazon to pick up the Shield TV streaming device for $150.
