This is How Nvidia’s Project Shield is Made
Nvidia’s “Project Shield” “Android handheld is coming soon, bringing the latest and greatest Tegra SoC – Tegra 4 – with it.
But how does the silicon giant make a handheld console, anyway? Or more specifically, how do they make the case?
“To create the casing, we inject a polycarbonate material into the RHCM (Rapid Heat Cycle Molding) tool at 10,800 PSI and 300 degrees Celsius. We use a polycarbonate mixture comprised of 90% Sabic 500ECR-739 PC and 10% glass. This material and injection molding process ensures a sturdy yet lightweight casing that will deliver hours of gaming with no fatigue.”
If that doesn’t get your hardware nerd juices flowin’, well…I don’t know what will. Let us know in the comments if you plan on buying a Shield or not.
Happy Friday, Game Front!
