4 out of 5 eggs Interesting Android TV 01/30/2017

This review is from: NVIDIA® SHIELD™ TV | Streaming Media Player

Pros: Nvidia Tegra Processor
4K and HDR Features
Remote and Controller is easy to use and felt great holding it in my hands

Cons: Limited Software to install
Not fully supported with all Android Games
Occasionally the Box gets hot and I have it out in the open so airflow is not an issue

Other Thoughts: I thought nvidia shield was going to live up to its hype but I dont see it maybe if I owned a 4k TV with HDR support it might change my mind. But overrall like my title of the review Interesting Android TV.

Pros: It performs better than the GTX 960
It is very quiet no coil whines
I am not sure to call it a Pro but the highest temp on the card only gets to 77c under full load

Cons: The only con about the card is that GTA V stutters and lags like crazy regardless what graphic settings I use and I have no clue why but I have no issues with Hitman Doom and other games so I dont have an answer about GTA V.

Other Thoughts: I am currently running 16.7.2 drivers and the power issues and performance is much better than before so great job AMD.
When I learned some of the 4 GB cards were rebranded 8 GB cards I did the research about maybe if I could unlock the additional 4 GB. I did not inspect it to see if it did have 8 GB so I took a leap of faith and was able to flash the BIOS and now I have an 8 GB RX 480 and it runs butter smooth so thank you Powercolor you are awesome. But I will not recommend everyone to do it because you may not get that luck of the draw like I did. So flash the BIOS at your own risk
