The company claims that it will offer 25 percent better performance than the Tegra X1 processor in the predecessor. The standard Shield TV is equipped with 2GB RAM and 8GB storage while the Shield TV Pro has 3GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage.

The two new media streaming players are bundled with a long prism-shaped remote that offers backlight buttons, voice control, and motion sensing. The remote has a Netflix button and a customisable hardware button alongside buttons for volume, forward/reverse, power, volume, home, back and voice search.

Nvidia Shield TV and Shield TV Pro are priced at $149.99 (approx. Rs 10.600) and $199.99 (approx. Rs 14,100) respectively.
