Nvidia details 64-bit Denver Tegra K1, claims Haswell-class performance for first 64-bit Android chip | ExtremeTech
Personally, I am not into the PPI race. With a full HD resolution on an 8 inch tablet, the image is already very clear even if you look at it very closely.

Also, do note high resolution have its drawbacks,
(1) It requires more power, means either heavier tablet or shorter battery life
(2) Graphic power wasted. I think high FPS is better than very high resolution.
(3) Not many applications actually runs on very high resolution well.

Huh? I thought MHL is basically micro usb to HDMI standard like Slimport? I could use MHL on a very old plasma that existed even before the MHL standard was on the scene.
This I am not too sure. I have been seeing MHL compatible TV and monitors of late, so it stuck me as a need to own a compatible display to use MHL. Also from my understanding, the input lag from MHL is also quite high.

I am not expert in this matter, so do correct me if I am wrong.

Nah. Those "compatible" MHL displays only means that the hdmi port on the tv charges the phone/tablet that's plugged in without external power supply (doesn't seem to work on tablets that require higher inputs though). Otherwise all hdmi ports will work, just that user needs to provide external power supply either via AC or usb.

Input lag is pretty low, much better than any form of wireless screen mirroring. But of course there's that hanging wire.

I see.

I don't like to use wireless mirroring most of the time. I think its only good if you wanna screen games to the big screen.

Anyway, thanks for the info man.

Mipad is " flooded" on Qoo10 (at least)
Like Nvidia Shield, no local warranty.

Just for note. There is a option to change to sRGB in display mode. Should improve colour gamut.

Also Moga controller works flawlessly with the shield. Even in PC streaming games! Wow

Tested the shield for almost a day and my impressions.

1) feels like the nexus 7.
2) screen is good but not great. Mipad is better in this aspect.
3) hdmi out is god sent! Amazing console mode.
4) works with Moga. No need spend money on official pad.
5) able to transfer apps to external sdcard is another god sent feature!
6) battery life so far so good. Spent whole day testing without recharge.

Anyone bringing in the official cover? Pls buy one for me!
