Despite this business setback, Jen – Hsun Huang has confirmed that NVIDA will continue to invest heavily in hardware manufacturing and marketing. Huang has also been forced to confess that the error in the battery of the tablets affects almost all those that have been commercialized.

The affected Shield tablets have been those sold between July 2014 and July 2015. Those tablets have batteries that overheat and that in extreme cases they can end up burning.

Batteries affected are those named with Y01. In total, NVIDA estimates that 83,000 tablets are affected, all of them sold in the North American market. Another 5,000 tablets sold in Canada would be affected by the same problem.

Huang himself has had to admit that the problem has arisen because the company has not had sufficient vigilance over the supply chain, especially in what has to do with the supervision of your battery suppliers.

The Shield tablet is a tablet that NVIDIA has developed in its central delegation in California and that is specially designed for gamers. Fortunately, the number of units that have been sold of the tablet has been relatively low, among other things due to the crisis that the market for tablets is experiencing worldwide.
