So, you got your hands on that dodgy Asus Transformer Prime with its lovely quad-core Tegra 3 SoC, and now you want to actually take advantage of all of its computing power. Well, guess what, you really don't have too many options on the software front for a real quad-core experience, but there are a few. This is where you'll ready about them all...

so, it means buying galaxy s3 for only 4 games. I will stick with my s2 which can play everything.

the s3 will still be able to play all the other games,by using only 2 cores, but these particular games can support up to 4 cores at the same time.

I know this may sound like a shocker: people don't just want the SIII because it's going to have a quad-core processor (although it is still not fully confirmed that it will have a quad-core processor and not a dual-core A15 one). There are other reasons to want the SIII such as the 4.7-4.8 inch HD screen, 12 MP camera, etc.

And also these games were for the Tegra 3 processor, just like last year when the Tegra 2 came out and nVidia released games for that. Once other quad-core devices are released, you will start to see more games coming out that will say "quad-core optimized".

"we guess you have found out how difficult it is to discover those apps that are actually capable of using the immense power of NVIDIA's new chip."

Not really =) just go to tegrazone.com

Their are plenty more apps officially optimized for Tegra 3 available! ALSO PLEASE MENTION SHINE RUNNER ISNT FULLY OPTIMIZED FOR Tegra 3, it just has a few nice special effects but nothing like Riptide GP's enhancements for Tegra 3.... Also Add the following: (Please find out the actual improvement for Tegra 3 on Tegra Zone)
Big Top THD (Tegra 3 version) If you look on Tegra Zone the Tegra 3 version has better lighting effects, shadowing...
SiegeCraft THD (Tegra 3 Version) More avatars on screen at once, better shadowing and water effects etc.
Sprinkle (Tegra 3 version) Slightly better improvements, not too noteworthy
SoulCraft (Tegra 3 Version)
Project Renaissance THD (June 2012) AMAZING PC LOOKING GAME!
Bladeslinger (Tegra 3 Version) ALSO AMAZING LOOKING but no release date
Dark Meadow (Tegra 3 Version) (Q1 2012)
And the rest such as:
Golden Arrow THD
Sonic 4 Epsiode 2 Tegra 3
Dark Kingdoms THD
Hamiltons Great Adventure Tegra 3
Eve to Greeen
Don't have official release dates
