So you've managed to get your hands on a dual-core superphone or tablet. What now you ask? It’s a question we have pondered at length previously and it seems as if Nvidia has come up with a way to get the most out of the powerful machines with Tegra Zone.
Tegra Zone is basically an Android app which is a one-stop shop for all content that can make the most of the Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor. While it won’t have any exclusive content, it will save you from trawling through the Android Market to find the games and applications that can take advantage of the power inside your superphone or tablet. With a lot of the current crop of premium Android tablets sporting dual-core processors, and a growing list of superphones (LG Optimus 2X, Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Atrix) there will presumably be more and more people looking for content in Tegra Zone.
Acording to Nvidia: “We're working with game developers and publishers to turbocharge mobile gaming for Android super phones and tablets. Our goal is to bring a console- class gaming experience to super phones and tablets and bring the generation of gaming to the future of mobile devices. Tegra Zone is a free app we've built so gamers can find great games for Tegra in one easy place.”
So enjoy it while you can because come the middle of this year, dual-core will look like a dinosaur when Nvidia rolls out its quad-core Tegra 3 behemoth.
