Qualcomm isn’t worried about Tegra 3, says VP

Quick: what's the system-on-a -chip that's on the top of everyone's mind right now? If you answered the Nvidia Tegra 3, Qualcomm Vice President Rob Chandhok has got a bone to pick with you.

In what might appear to be a very similar fashion to their competitors, Qualcomm has today announced that they're working with gaming developers to produce an optimization program for console-quality games, this "Game Pack" initially containing 100 mobile games for Android. These games will all be optimized for Snapdragon-based mobile devices but, unlike Qualcomm's competitors, these games will not be limited to Qualcomm processor-laden devices. Qualcomm's Adreno GPUs in Snapdragon mobile processors will bring the top excellence in these games, but they'll be able to run on masses of other platforms from the start.
