NVIDIA GeForce ULP (Tegra 3)

The NVIDIA GeForce ULP in Tegra 3 is a Ultra Low Power graphics card integrated in the Tegra 3 SoC. It is similar to the Tegra 2 GPU but features additional pixel shaders and optimizations. This leads to 8 pixel and 4 vertex shader supporting OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenVG 1.1 and EGL 1.4. Usually Tegra 3 is used in Android based tablets and smartphones, but there are also some Windows RT based devices.
