Besides doing what any other Android device is capable of doing, one of the coolest features is the ability to stream games from your PC using the GeForce Experience software. If using a compatible GeForce 650 GPU or higher, you can stream games like Borderlands 2, Dishonored or Metro: Last Light just to name a few.
The NVIDIA Shield will be available June 27th.
