Nvidia Shield tablet K1 is a budget gaming tablet, with game console-rivalling power.

Equipped with Nvidia’s latest and most advanced Tegra K1 mobile processor, the Shield K1 tablet promises a breathtaking PC-class gaming experience without sapping the tablet’s battery in minutes. Or emptying your bank account.

This means stunning graphics, seamless performance, and PC gaming efficiency minus the super-sized price tag. The Nvidia Shield K1 costs just £149.98.

Spec-wise, there’s a lot to love. The Shield K1 boasts a Full HD 8-inch display, with dual-facing front speakers, a dual bass reflex port to reduce distortion, and a built-in mic.

But with the Nvidia Shield K1, it’s all about what’s inside – namely one of the biggest brains in tablet gaming. The Tegra K1 mobile processing CPU packs a hefty 2.3 GHz quad-core punch, and is based on the same Nvidia Kepler architecture that drives hardcore gaming PCs.

The Shield K1 also has 16GB of storage and uses the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

Of course, no gaming tablet is complete without a controller. The Shield K1 takes its full form when paired with the Shield controller, which you can grab separately for £49.99.

It’s also hooked up to the GeForce Now cloud gaming service. It lets you stream all of your favourite PC games from your desktop to play instantly on the K1.

Top of our stocking filler list this year? Oh yes.
