NVIDIA has always been at the forefront of gaming, and their mobile Tegra chips are no different. You may have a Tegra device in your Android arsenal and know just how good it can be, or maybe you've heard us talk about hot Tegra games. If so, and you're like me and love to see things pushed to their limit, seeing the demo of Dead Trigger 2 was a thing of beauty.
We'll have to wait to get our hands on a Tegra 4 device and try the game ourselves, but Simon will be talking with Madfinger at CES, and you can bet he's going to try to get some hands-on time with this one himself. NVIDIA is bringing it!
Update: We've got Madfinger's official press release and screenshots after the break.
