Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

This device is the first to work natively with Google's mobile OS by the name of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and runs a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Is it enough to compete with such gaming titans as the ultra-powerful NIVIDA Tegra 3 quad-core processor toting ASUS Transformer Prime, or perhaps the iPad 2 for good measure?

What we've got here is the Prime and the iPad 2 running two games side-by side at the same time: first Riptide GP, then Shadowgun, both games that show the real power of dual-core and up gaming - behold the smoothness!
