Nvidia are hosting a new episodic web series, where the tech company will be showcasing its latest Project Shield gaming device.

The video released shows Vivid Games’ Real Boxing, which as the title suggests, is a boxing sim created for Android devices.

While the game itself looks impressive, the smooth streaming gameplay on the device is also something to take note of.

The new handheld is running on the company’s recently announced Tegra 4 chip, and has cloud gaming capabilities, with the ability to stream high-end gaming titles which would only be available on the PC platform.

The system also works with Steam, and can stream games to the device from any PC using a GeForce GTX.

The device itself is a controller with a screen mounted to it. The screen is a 5-inch touch screen, with a 1280 x 720 display at 294 dpi, and Nvidia promises up to 38 hours of battery life.

There is also a micro SD slot, one USB port and an HDMI output.

Project Shield made a huge splash at CES 2013, taking home multiple awards for the Best of Show, and from a gamer’s standpoint, does look very impressive.
