One of the many benefits with Nvidia’s dual-core system-on-a-chip Tegra 2 is of course its powerful graphics handling capabilities. For most people, Nvidia is a company that’s known for its graphics cards for PCs, such as the famous GeForce series. With the Tegra 2, Nvidia is bringing some of that extra graphics oomph to mobile devices.
At CES, the world’s first dual-core smartphones was introduced: the LG Optimus 2X and the Motorola Atrix 4G, both rocking a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor with dual cores. Nvidia is apparently helping developers to take advantage of the Tegra 2 chip, and in the video below we get to see two Tegra 2 optimized games being played on the Optimus 2X and the Atrix 4G.
Nvidia has announced that it will release an Android app that will showcase the games of its partners, so users can easily find titles that make the most of Tegra 2.
What do you think of the gaming demo? Is it impressive, or had you expected more? Bear in mind that some of the graphical niceties likely get lost in the video.
