Welcome to the Tegra Zone, Get Ready!

While we wait patiently for the arrival of some of the more serious Tegra 2-powered devices – the Motorola Xoom and ATRIX spring to mind – anyone with the LG Optimus 2X, or another Tegra 2 phone or tablet for that matter, should download the Tegra Zone app from the Android Market, as it’s exactly what your new super-phone has been waiting for.

Released today, the free application acts as a platform for the latest news and developments centred around the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, not only providing high definition trailers, screenshots and features, but also detailing all the games that have been enhanced by the developers to take advantage of the Tegra 2′s abilities.

The initial wave of Tegra 2 games includes Fruit Ninja, Dungeon Defenders, Samurai II: Vengeance, Monster Madness and Galaxy on Fire 2, a game some may recall as being demoed alongside Dungeon Defenders during the Xperia Play event at Mobile World Congress.

So how does the Tegra 2 processor enhance these games?┬áNVIDIA claims ‘increased geometry detail, higher resolution textures and improved shading, lighting and shadows’, so we can expect games to look more impressive, plus on-screen characters’ animation will be better, along with improved AI and more complex worlds.

Tegra Zone states Android 2.1 as the minimum it’ll run on, but unless your device uses a Tegra 2 processor, you won’t get much benefit from having this on your phone. Patience though, the ATRIX and all the rest are on their way!
