ASUS Transformer Prime hands-on with games Bladeslinger, Glowball, Chidori

What you're about to witness is a set of three hands-on videos of a few games that were included on the ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet when it came to your humble narrator's doorstep last week for review.

The next generation of mobile processors has arrived in the form of the NIVIDA Tegra 3, formerly known as Project Kal-El, a quad-core chipset with aspirations to dominate the Android landscape in 2012 as the Tegra 2 dual-core processor dominated the majority of 2011.

NVIDIA expands on Project Kal-El, adds a fifth core

Those interested in the processing power of mobile devices running any and all operating systems should be aware of NVIDIA's Project Kal-El, a quad core CPU the group is prepping for a late 2011 released.

It was here that we got our first glance at a quad core processor working on a mobile platform, and as it was said back then, multi-core processing is, and will continue to be, massively important to mobile computing. What NVIDIA provides us today is a stripped-down and simple look at why the next generation, quad core, is much better than dual core in basically every way.

First up is a gaming demo of a new, homegrown game, Glowball, running on a prototype Kal-El powered Android Honeycomb tablet. As you can see in the video after the cut, the quad-core chip allows for high-quality dynamic lighting effects with responsiveness you simply couldn't get from a dual-core like the Tegra 2.
