NVIDIA's got a Shield 2 in the works with a next-gen Tegra heart, and why G-Sync is a big deal

At least according to NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

NVIDIA employees filled Montreal Marriott's Salle de Bal 1,000-person capacity basement ballroom late last week, where Huang announced a hat-trick of major news for the company -- Gamestream, G-Sync, and the new GTX 780 Ti GPU -- to raucous applause. The highlight of the three, and the one that Huang emphasized by flying in a trio of game industry legends, is G-Sync. The module will arrive built into gaming monitors starting early next year, and it aims to solve the issues of tearing, stutter, and lag.

The aforementioned trio of legends -- Oculus' John Carmack, Epic's Tim Sweeney, and EA DICE's Johan Andersson -- vouched for G-Sync, but we were lucky enough to grab Huang for a quick followup interview post-presentation. Beyond discussing last week's big announcements, Huang spoke to Project Logan (aka: the next Tegra chip) and NVIDIA Shield 2 (which may be coming sooner than you'd think); Huang told us he'd love to see Logan powering the next version of Shield as representative hardware ahead of anything else. Head below the break for the full video.
