Re: Why does Order and Chaos Online play smoother on my phone than on my Nexus 7?
The weak spot of the Tegra 3 is the fill rate due to slow RAM. This is also why GPU over clocking barely increases FPS.
The powervrs in iOS devices on the other hand excel here.
Gameloft designs games for iOS and the GS3 only.
Therefore, the powervr in your GNex runs Gameloft games better that the Tegra 3.
The T3 is a great GPU for being over a year old. The problem is you have to work around this slow RAM, something Gameloft isn't willing to do... Unlike mad finger for example.
In the T4 Nvidia has realized its mistake and added dual channel faster RAM which is partly why the GPU performance is much better.
