The upcoming Dead Trigger 2 will be among the first mobile video games to take advantage of NVIDIA's powerful Tegra 4 processor, but, as much as we wish it wasn't so, gamers will have to wait for at least 5 more months or so before getting the chance to actually play it. However, what we do get to check out in the meantime is this brief demo of the game running on a Project Shield handheld game console, powered by Tegra 4's four cores of awesome...

While I see the point you are trying to make, it is noteworthy to point out that games do use some of the processing power of the CPU. Now, when it comes to how much of it is used will depend on the game. The CPU processes the data before the GPU does, so the more powerful and efficient your CPU means it will allow your GPU to be used to it's full potential. If the CPU isn't efficient enough to handle the processes then it will cause a bottleneck which will in turn mean your GPU will not be used to it's full potential. Let's just say there is a reason why the games you buy for your PC require a certain minimum CPU and GPU to run. Some games will require almost 100% of the CPU power to run depending on how powerful the CPU is and what game it is.

I'd rather get a tegra 4 smartphone paired with a moga controller than this thing it looks bulky. Just a preference.

Put that chip in a Android phone and I'll preorder it. Paying in full that day.

And when it was paid, it was only $1... I would have paid $3 for it.

On the other hand there is Scumbag Gameloft.
Does bad ports of iOS games that have several performance issues and charge for it.

Hmmm I wonder if my iPad 4 or Asus tf700 will have problems running this game. I like the first one

The iPad 4 is just a hair less powerful than a Tegra 4. This game will run just fine :).
