NVIDIA has released an update to the Shield Portable device that improves the performance of emulators on the device. The update is small, at just over 3MB, and is optional.
This is good news as the Shield Portable is an ideal device for running emulators. For those not aware, emulators allow you to run games from other platforms, such as classic Nintendo games, which otherwise won’t run natively on Android. Since Shield Portable has built-in controls, it is great for playing classic games on the move and it is good to see NVIDIA acknowledge the typical use case of the device and work on improving that aspect.
