NVIDIA is staying on top of software updates for their SHIELD Tablet, releasing the minor (but much appreciated) upgrade to Android 5.0.1 only a month after the tablet received its first iteration of Lollipop. While the new Android version brings mostly minor bug fixes and system enhancements, some additional goodness has been added into the mix to support the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet.
Users will notice improvements in app and UI responsiveness along with a new Live Effects HD camera mode. These HDFX will take advantage of the SHIELD’s Tegra K1’s GPU with live previews so you will know exactly how your photos will turn out. NVIDIA also returns the Power Control Menu, improves memory optimization, adds support for OpenGL 4.5, and more. The full log can be found at NVIDIA’s site.
