Can the Nokia X even handle the graphically intense games Gameloft makes?

Exactly! It will take 2 seconds lags for each action of the game!

That was a honest question, not a sarcastic remark. Well, sorta.I know WP runs smooth on limited specs, but games like Asphalt and Rival Knights can lag or stutter from time to time on my LG G Pad 8.3, and while its specs aren't "flagship" anymore, they're still very capable and far outstrip the specs of any of the Nokia X's. I mean, technically speaking I can run Skyrim and Portal 2, on my aging laptop, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Well considering the processor is a SD S4 play, dual core 1ghz cortex-A5 with 512mb of ram the slowest of all Arm class CPUs. This should tell everyone everything they need to know about the Nokia X. The X+, and XL is the same CPU only with 768mb of ram.
The X2 is a SD 200 dual core 1.2ghz cortex-A7 CPU and it has 1gb of ram. These are no speed deamons by any chance.

I saw asphalt 8 runs fine without any lag. Don't know about other games.

Asphalt 8: Airborne and Real Football 2014 are awesome games. Love it.

BTW PA what was Cortana's prediction for yesterday's match b/w Brazil and Germany? And what about today's match b/w Netherlands and Argentina?

Brazil's defence looked very weak, such a huge defeat in Semis.

I hope Argentina wins today's match and Messi would do some magic.

IMO Brazil missed T Silva more than Neymar, David Luiz was terribly out of position most of the time, giving Germany to much space, Germany sure did punish Brazil
I hope the Netherlands win the cup, I feel sorry for them as they somehow have never won it yet even though they have had many great players

I knew Germany would win yesterday match. But 7-1, i never expected that much difference in scores. Brazil really humiliated by germans. Also don't think Argentina wins today, Though messi might surprise us.

the new Nokia/Microsoft "X2" smart could probably run these games because it has a better CPU and more Ram than the previous 3- X Phones. Folks Microsoft spent 7 billion dollars to buy most of Nokia mobile smart phone/Cell phone assets. To get back it's investment money Microsoft WILL continue to make Their Windows smart phones and sell the New "X" Android open source OS smart Phones. Look for an American Version of the X2 to go on sale in the USA before the Christmas shopping season. It will probably have a Pure vue camera on it, a more Powerful CPU and a front facing Camera and the other Goodies a smart phone should have. It will Probably cost more than the Nokia/Microsoft 'X2" However if Microsoft wants it to be a high sales success Microsoft must put the software in their Android Open source OS that will at least allow people to access and use Google play store Apps. it could be called the "X3"
