Ouya tech is one generation out of date, claims benchmarking firm

Tuesday, 16th April 2013 06:15 GMT By Brenna Hillier

According to tests conducted by graphics firm Futuremark, the tech powering Android micro-console Ouya is at least one generation out of date in terms of smartphone technology. Still, even if it is out-performed by current phones and tablets, it’s just $99 which is pretty thrifty. You can watch a video of the benchmark process through the break. The Ouya hits stores in early June; Kickstarter backers are already receiving their units.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    Wow. They needed tests to know that Tegra 3 is (at least) one generation old?

    I’m so glad they told someone, I don’t know how anyone would have known that a year old processor was a generation old.

    What do you expect? It’s Futuremark. Developing useless software since forever.

    The only thing that this highlights is how clueless supposed games journalists are.

    They are at a loss to even explain what this means to their readers, so the readers leave with the wrong end of the stick.

    It’s a games-only Nexus 7 in a box for half the price. That means better than PS2 graphics, but definitely not even close to 360/PS3.

    If you want to see how it runs one of the best looking “games” available on Android, go here –

    Just read the comments here –

    Embarrassing to read the ignorance.
