Back in May, a device made by NVIDIA that looked like a game controller hit the FCC and sparked rumors of a follow up to the company’s Shield system. Shortly after this filing surfaced, word broke that the chip maker was instead developing a gaming tablet utilizing its new Tegra K1 processor. Today, the often reliable @evleaks has shared what appears to be a press or concept render of NVIDIA’s unannounced slate, with a caption referring to it as the “NVIDIA Shield Tablet.”

Last month a NVIDIA-made gadget passed through the FCC. Originally believed to be a follow up to the Android-powered Shield, this may not be the case. A recent filing by the Global Certification Forum has outed a device referred to as the “Shield Tablet” with NVIDIA listed as its manufacturer. While the GCF listing doesn’t reveal much else, rumor has it that the tablet will feature a 7.9 -inch 2,048 x 1,536 display, a Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
