Official Nvidia video shows off the power of the Tegra 3-powered tablet and a few Ice Cream Sandwich features

Nvidia is giving users a glimpse at the much-anticipated Asus Transformer Prime tablet through the chipmaker’s official Youtube channel.

The minute and a half walkthrough as embedded below shows off a couple of new features of Ice Cream Sandwich, including a “transition effect” between apps and widgets, folder capabilities with drag and drop, 1080p video playback and the tablet game Riptide. All functions perform smoothly and transition seamlessly throughout the video. In particular, the user pointed out that the quad-core Tegra 3 processor can allow for the full HD playback and smooth graphics during gameplay.

Unfortunately, the short teaser doesn’t show much else, such as internet performance or benchmarks, but those results will be known in just a few weeks when the tablet launches this December.

The 32GB Transformer Prime is now available for pre-order through Amazon for $499, the same retail price as the 16GB iPad 2.
