I own a Galaxy Nexus and the performance of a few "HD" games is horrible. Even with a bus overclocked kernel from here: http://www.derkernel.com/jb-tuna.php

Is there any way to maybe force apps to run on a lower resolution, say 540x960, without losing my app data? Are there any ROMs out there which allow you to do so?

Can you name a game that runs horrible on the Galaxy Nexus? –  Flow Aug 30 '12 at 7:09
@Flow GTA3, temple run brave, few levels of N.O.V.A. i'm not saying their performance is unplayable. I personally would like a constant 60FPS over a few more pixels. –  viswa Aug 30 '12 at 7:21
okay, maybe "horrible" was too harsh. consider it as "below my expectations" from a Rs25000 phone. –  viswa Aug 30 '12 at 7:25
I just wanted to know so that I can compare it myself and if I don't have any problems, chances are that there is something wrong with your device. –  Flow Aug 30 '12 at 7:36
