    Three of the biggest names in the touch controller industry—Atmel, Cypress and Synaptics—are supporting NVIDIA’s DirectTouch architecture. OEMs can now adopt this technology into their NVIDIA-powered devices, allowing for ultra-responsive touch, while reducing battery consumption. Their full press release is below. Be sure to check out the demo above. Enjoy!

    I hate to say this, but never once in my usage of a modern smartphone with a CAPACITIVE screen have I ever thought to myself "Gee, the touch processing here sure could use some hardware acceleration......."

    Oh well, with all of the excess computing power in these modern phones; you might as well use it for something.

    Are you kidding? I came from a D1 using a Galaxy S now and have used my gf's Rezound. They all lag like crazy. Pick up an iphone, the difference is like night & day. Even the GNex has lag with hardware acceleration. So yeah, I'm glad someone is working on this since Android needs a little help. Plus it uses less battery which is always a good thing.

    Right you are Ken

    I very much agree with this. I am on my 3rd Android, which is now the Galaxy Nexus GSM. It is very slow compared to an iPhone. This doesn't mean I will switch but it does mean I will talk about it. This is a very welcomed piece of technology and I very much hope it is implemented in all touchscreens going forward. Galaxy Nexus also advertised no lag camera shutter and wow, there is a 2-3 second lag sometimes.
