Nvidia is preparing a new Android gaming device that will be able to link up to your PC's graphics card and "supercharge its own processing power", according to a new BBC report.

The device is said to be able to "stream PC games to a TV via its HDMI-out port" and will allegedly ship alongside a budget-priced controller.

However, while the device is supposedly able to run Android games natively thanks to the inclusion of a Tegra K1 chip, the BBC understands that it will require an Nvidia graphics card to run PC titles via Nvidia's GeForce Experience system.

The report states that the device may "pose a challenge" to Valve's forthcoming range of Steam Machine, which have been designed to encourage PC gaming in the living room.

While Nvidia has yet to announce the new device, the company confirmed to the BBC that it has an "awesome new gaming product that is launching soon".
