NFS Shift On The Nokia N8: Serious Gaming Potential

The Nokia N8 has a dedicated graphics processor that takes the load off its other 680 MHz processor when you are playing games, showing off pictures and with other graphics related tasks. Till today, I hadn’t really seen it in action but at ‘An Evening With Ovi‘ I did some gaming on the N8, with Asphalt and NFS Shift and I have to say it was pretty nice.

We had the N8 hooked up via HDMI to a large screen television and here is what the experience was like.

(Play the video in HD to get a better idea of the crisp and pretty smooth experience)

NFS Shift will hit the Ovi Store once the N8 starts shipping and there will be a bunch of games that take advantage of its faster processing capabilities, looks like Symbian and great gaming will go hand in hand once again.
