Default Riptide GP - water effect on screen

I installed Riptide GP today as it is Amazon's free app of the day and I was surprised to see the water splash effect displayed on my G_Note GT-N801.

I was under the impression that you had to have a Nvidia Tegra 3 chip to display these special effects.
