It's relatively new, having come out in late 2014. It has some excellent power, the display is wonderful, and it has an insane GPU we haven't seen before in tablets--the ULP GeForce Kepler, with 192 cores. Also, just to clarify, I am talking about the tablet, not the handheld. 


Is it really worth picking up? Sure, it plays Android games beautifully, but nothing on my list I recently created requires high-end specs. In fact, the large majority of Android games don't require high-end specs.


So, worth it or not? What are your thoughts?

I kind of wonder just how many people need a gaming tablet.  My guess is most people are already satisfied with gaming on their phone, and most games should be optimised for use on phones so a dedicated gaming tablet isn't necessary.

Right. Really the only thing you're getting is Nvidia's name, and that's about it.
