The Refreshed Nvidia Shield TV Is Almost Certainly A Thing According To An FCC Filing

Following on from last month's rumours of a refreshed version of the Nvidia Shield TV, an FCC filing points to it being the real deal.

According to the information available, the 'mdarcy' - as it was codenamed - isn't getting that much of an update. So far, the rumoured specs seem to be spot on, with the new device housing an updated Tegra X1 chipset that's expected to have a higher max GPU clock speed and more efficient power usage.

It'll run Android 9 Pie out of the box, and is WiFi and Bluetooth enabled. Other than that, very little seems to be changing, so unless there are any more new tweaks on the way that are just being kept under wraps for now, that's your lot.

Given that this isn't looking like a full blown upgrade to make it a Shield 2, the refreshed device will be the third iteration the Shield TV has seen since its 2015 launch. It was updated somewhat in 2017. [Ubergizmo]
