NVIDIA is pretty much bent on taking over the mobile and portable gaming industry with their current line of Tegra 3 processors.  What they released today was the next device that they want to use to take over handheld gaming on a more dedicated level.  The "SHIELD" is their Tegra 4 appliance that looks like it has some amazing specifications, features and more.  Check out the official video below.
