If you’re lucky enough to be one of the first kids on your block with a Tegra 2-powered Android device in your pocket or on your lap, you’re probably itching to put that dual-core processor to good use. Well, it turns out NVIDIA has been working with game developers to create high performance versions of popular titles, all of them tweaked for more realistic graphics and enhanced artificial intelligence. Today, NVIDIA is launching their new Tegra Zone app in the Android Market to help you browse and download those optimized games in a one-stop solution.
The Tegra Zone app is a portal of sorts that serves up games you’d find in the Android Market. The problem is you’d have to go searching for those games and hunt them down one by one. This new gaming portal brings all those games together for easy browsing, and maybe even some easy buying, should you feel the the need. The games feature up to 8x greater 3D geometry (smoother, more organic curves) and higher quality textures (for more realistic surfaces) with higher frame rates. Check out the screenshots and demo video below for a better idea of what we mean.Tegra Zone also serves up HD screenshots and video trailers of actual gameplay, not to mention official reviews and gaming news.
Check out the video below to get a better idea of what Tegra Zone looks like. We also compare Fruit Ninja classic with Fruit Ninja THD (the Tegra 2 optimized version). The difference in 3D performance is distinct. If you like what you see, you can download the app in the Android Market.
