It's been years - at this point - since NVIDIA released their TegraZone, a place where the groups that the company had worked with hand-in-hand to optimize games for their Tegra processors could be collectively shown off. Now the group updates this app environment to work not only with devices that roll with NVIDIA Tegra processors inside, but all Android devices, no restrictions.
