3 Chip Stocks to Note Now: Nvidia’s Shield Reviewed, Qualcomm’s Smart Watch, AMD’s Security Step

Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA): Nvidia’s Shield is a gaming device with unexplored power, according to a review by Popular Mechanics. The device comes with a Tegra 4 processor, a 5-inch touch display, and powerful speakers. Weighing in at over a pound, the device can be a bit clunky, but it handles well, the review says. In addition, reviewers found the Shield’s gaming potential to be underdeveloped, as it is one of few devices that could explore the realm of games controlled both by a touchscreen and by traditional button-based controls.
