Skyrim unleashed on ASUS Transformer Prime

By Updated on

We recently informed you about the potential of the new Razer ‘Project Fiona’ tablet after a video from CES 2012 showed the portable device running Skyrim on ultra high settings. It seems like Razer’s tablet isn’t the only one to achieve such a feat though, as the ASUS Tranformer Prime also has a trick up its sleeve.

The recently released Transformer Prime was also seen lurking at CES 2012, and just to give consumers an idea that the Transformer Prime is very capable when it comes to handling graphic intensive games, both ASUS and NVIDIA unveiled at the event a Transformer Prime device that had the potential to run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Unlike the Razer Project Fiona though, the Transformer Prime won’t be able to run Skyrim just by launching an app. Instead, the device makes use of a nifty app called SplashTop, which allows users to stream content from PC to tablet. By using this app on the Prime, it allows Skyrim to run from your PC straight to your frame at the loss of no delay or framerate problems for the final result on your tablet.

This isn’t a feature exclusive to the Transformer Prime, but it is largely thanks to the Quad-Core Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA that makes this possible. What you will need to have to try this yourself though, is a high end PC with a decent NVIDIA graphics card and a good internet connection to make the stream run as smooth as possible.

Providing you have met these criteria, you should be able to run Skyrim on any quad-core Tablet just like you would on a PC. Splashtop is available now from the Android Market for a very reasonable price. For those of you lucky enough to have a PC capable of running Skyrim with good settings, a Transformer Prime and a decent internet connection, you should try this out today and see how Skyrim runs on your Transformer Prime.
