The Nvidia Shield TV Pro does much more than a classic TV box and can be likened to a real video game console. It is now on sale on Amazon and Rue du Commerce, where its price has dropped from 219 to 194 euros.
Nvidia is not at its first attempt. After the Shield TV in 2017, the manufacturer waited two years to renew its range, this time with two boxes: the classic Nvidia Shield TV and the Nvidia Shield TV Pro. The latter is hardly ever on promotion, but it is clear that today he has made a small exception.
- 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision et Dolby Atmos
- The power of the Tegra X1 + chip for gaming
- Compatibility with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa

The Nvidia Shield TV Pro retained the authentic design of its predecessor, while the classic model opted for a slightly more discreet cylindrical design. This allows it first of all to offer a more extensive connection, with 1 HDMI port, 1 Ethernet port and 2 USB 3.0 ports. These are very useful for connecting one or more game controllers, or even to extend the storage space with an external hard drive for example. It can thus serve as a Plex server in Full HD.
What jumps out next is the new look of the remote, which is quite pleasant in the hand, with its triangular shape strangely resembling a Toblerone chocolate bar. There are 8 function buttons in the center, two additional buttons at the top, a navigation area and a dedicated button for Netflix. With the integrated microphone, the Nvidia Shield TV Pro is also compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to perform voice commands.
To play, the Nvidia Shield TV Pro is obviously an ideal platform to enjoy all the games available on the Play Store. Its Tegra X1 + chip – here supported by 3 GB of RAM – is 25% more powerful compared to the configuration of the old model for an even more pleasant gaming experience. To go further with ever more beautiful graphics, note that it is also possible to access the service cloud gaming GeForce Now, especially since its catalog is growing more and more.
It is not finished, we find the Dolby Vision certifications for HDR and Dolby Atmos for sound, also with 4K compatibility thanks to a new algorithm more advanced than before, in order to obtain a better quality of picture. However, all this only makes sense if and only if your TV is compatible with these display formats.
We tested the classic version of the 2019 model of the Nvidia Shield TV. Do not hesitate to read it to find out more.
