    New Nvidia Shield TV w/ Android TV passes through FCC with an updated chipset (July 2019)

    In the Android TV world, the Nvidia Shield TV is still by far the best option available. However, the aging hardware is due for an upgrade. Today, an FCC listing for an updated Nvidia Shield TV has been revealed, hinting that a release could be around the corner.





    The FCC filing which is clearly labeled as ?NVIDIA Corporation SHIELD Android TV Game Console P3430″ gives us a strong hint that Nvidia?s work on a third-generation Android TV is well underway. No images of the hardware are revealed in this listing, but there?s additional confirmation of an updated chipset under the hood.

    The Nvidia-made Tegra processor under the hood is listed as the ?Tegra X1 T210 B01,? differing from the ?Tegra X1 A2? which is used in the 2017 Nvidia Shield TV (via CordCuttersNews). It?s unclear what other changes could be made to the specification list, but an updated processor is certainly a welcome update.

    In past leaks, it was shown that this new Nvidia Shield TV, codenamed ?mdarcy? is probably going to be a minor update. Android Pie would ship with the new hardware out of the box, and updated peripherals might also be included. Given the complaints surrounding the remote on the second-generation Shield, updates in that department would certainly be welcome.

    It?s unclear when Nvidia might officially reveal a new Shield TV, but the 2017 reveal arrived at CES in January. Perhaps the same pattern will follow for a 2020 revision. Notably, the confidential details of the FCC listing are to be kept for 180 days, so it seems possible that the official announcement is still a ways out.

    A new Nvidia Shield TV model is on the way, according to a listing at the FCC. The product is referred to as the ?NVIDIA Corporation SHIELD Android TV Game Console P3430,? and has a Tegra X1 T210 B01 processor. That is, in all likelihood, the same Tegra X1 revision found in the new Nintendo Switch Lite as well as the updated Switch with longer battery life.

    The filing comes after evidence of a new Shield TV variant appeared on the Google Play developer console last month. Not much else is known about what the new model will entail, or when it will be released. But the likely die-shrunk Tegra chip should mean it could be smaller, more power-efficient, or capable of running at higher clock speeds ? or possibly some combination of the three.

      More Shield Rumours

      Nvidia will be bringing two new Shield TV devices to market, hopefully later this year

      We have heard new Nvidia Shield TV rumours for a while and today those rumours have split in two with a possibility that they will be bringing two different form factor Android TV devices to the marketplace.

      Recently Nvidia released the Shield Experience 8.0 update to their current Shield TV devices and within the code for it there is mention of not just the long-rumoured ?mdarcy? Android TV device but also a ?sif?. The difference between the two is that ?sif? appears to lack a TV tuner and USB support but offers an SD card slot giving rise to the thought that is is an Android TV dongle.


      The new Shield TV Remote (P3700) is now on FCC website. OEM: Remote Solution.https://fccid.io/TX4-P3700

      Also the 2017 model (P2897) has new Exhibits.https://fccid.io/VOB-P2897

      P3430 is probably a Shield TV Dongle (compare the 2 pics) & the 2017 model is getting the new processor.

      The folks at XDA Developers were able to delve into the Shield Experience 8.0 code where they found ?sif? and ?mdarcy? associated with ?darcy? and ?foster?, the 2015 and 2017 Shield TV models. XDA suspect that due to the lack of mentions for ?sif? elsewhere we will see that after the launch of the new Shield TV, ?mdarcy?.

      It is of course all speculation and Nvidia have cancelled devices at the last minute before so there is no guarantee that both of these will see the light of day. We do expect the ?mdarcy? Shield TV to launch later this year due to the volume of rumours and leaks we are seeing of it but the ?sif? Android TV dongle is another story.

      Whatever the case it is great to see Nvidia finally following up their Shield TV which is in my opinion the best Android TV experience bar none. You can be sure we will see it land in Australia not long after its release.

          What 'aging hardware'?

          It's still the best and fastest Android TV box in the market.
