NVIDIA unveiled a recent tablet, the Shield Tablet K1, which is a refreshed version of the Shield Tablet from last year. The GPU maker didn’t really add anything, it's more about what was removed – like $100 off the price.

The catch is that you don't acquire a charger, a cable, no stylus either. Still, you probably have a ton of chargers laying around your house, so we think it's a honest trade. The stylus is srecent separately for $20, a branded charger is $30, there's a wireless controller for $60 too.

The 8" tablet boasts a 1,920 x 1,200px screen. It's powered by a Tegra K1 chipset with a quad-core Cortex-A15 processor and a Kepler GPU (192 cores, 852MHz), paired with 2GB of RAM. If you have a 4K TV, the Shield Tablet K1 can output 4K over HDMI.

The tablet runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and has a modest 16GB of storage (you'll probably want to plug in a microSD so that games have room).

Additional specs include stereo speakers on the front, Wi-Fi, optional LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a 19.75Wh battery.

Besides Android games, you can sign up for GeForce NOW ($8/month) to stream Personal Computer (PC) games from NVIDIA's servers. You acquire a 3 month trial period.
