Nvidia opens up shop on the Android Market

Graphics card and chipset manufacture Nvidia has created a store on the Android application repository, for games to take advantage of their Tegra chipset.

The store within a store has a range of apps that are specifically setup for utilising the dual-core chipset and GPU of the new Nvidia Tegra 2 platform, which is at the centre of a number of the latest devices from mobile phones to tablet computers.

Nvidia’s Tegra Zone has a great deal of rich games, in addition to game reviews, high-res screenshots, HD video trailers, gameplay videos and behind-the-scenes features.

Amongst the titles around at launch are Dungeon Defenders: First Wave Deluxe HD, which is the first Android game built on the Unreal Engine 3. There is also Samurai II: Vengeance, along with and Galaxy on Fire 2 THD.

Some of the latest devices that can take advantage of these games are the Motorola Atrix, LG Optimus 2X and Motorola Xoom tablet.

The Tegra 2 offers up console-quality gaming on a mobile device. It also has the claim to be the world’s first mobile dual-core CPU, which has twice the web browsing ability and support for full Adobe Flash with the Nvidia GeForce GPU.
