The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Reviewby Joshua Ho on July 29, 2014 9:00 AM EST
While NAND performance used to receive relatively little attention, it's now clear that some devices can ship with internal storage poor enough to severely degrade the user experience. Even if storage performance is acceptable, improvements in this area can significantly improve user experience. In the case of this device, it seems that we're looking at a SanDisk iNAND eMMC 4.3 solution.
In NAND performance, the Shield Tablet does well against its peers, although random write speed is a bit on the low side. While no particular slight against NVIDIA, it’s a bit disappointing how NAND performance in tablets seems to be lagging behind the smartphone space, although not entirely surprising due to stronger cost constraints.
