I just looked at the Tegra Wiki and it lists the Tega X1 as 64 bit for both
the old version used on the Shield TV that I have and on the 2019 versions.
So supposedly both the 2019 tube Shield TV and the Shield TV Pro 2019 use
the same Tega X1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tegra#Tegra_X1

The big difference between the 2 2019 Shield TVs is the tube has 2GB RAM
and  8BG internal storage with only microSD expansion storage, and no USB 3
ports.  The Pro model has 3GB RAM and 16 GB internal Storage and 2 USB 3

I'm looking at upgrading my FireTV 4K with another Shield TV.  I had to
give my old 2017 Shield TV to my wife so I'm stuck with the old FIreTV 4K
for a while.  It's good, but compared to the Shield TV I think the Shield
TV is much faster at loading apps and the playback is better on many apps
by a little bit.

Unless someone warns me off, I'm probably going to order a 2019 Nvidia
Shield TV Pro.
