Who the hell wants to play ShadowGun if you have the option to play Half Life 2/Counter Strike: Source.

Actually this gen of atom processors(bay trail) can already handle quite a lot of x86 games at 720P with low-medium image quality and it runs pretty well. So hopefully when we come to next gen we should be able to see a lot of affordable gaming tablets that run modern x86 at acceptable fps and quality. You can get a sneak peek at this guy's channel about the gaming performance of atom z3740

Shield requires no answer... It's hardly relevant really.

And to be honest, a gaming tablet makes no more sense than Shield. Now, it being x86 based... That's another entirely different beast.

well , shield's selling point is streaming PC games anywhere , on that point AMD might wants to compete NV over it


those overpriced portables made by console makers needs to die , AMD + NV can make much more advance portable gaming hardware than whatever those phones got , can't say the same about Sony and Nintendo

I really don't see this as anything like the Shield. Honestly, I'd rather have a good tablet over the Shield every day of the week.
