For a while I thought that considering the amount of contributors Ouya had, they'd have invested in Tegra 4, or at least find a way to heavily overclock the Tegra 3 without killing it. Anyways, unless they made some software mods of their own, I don't think the hardware will make enough of a difference anyway. Android makes a pretty bad PC, and while Ouya is focused on gaming and media, it's also claimed to be a development platform. I wish the project success, but I think Tegra 3 will really hurt it.
Did someone actually expect a console running Android to be usable for games? Good god, people, how naive can you be?
For future references: real consoles do not multitask!
"Good god, people, how naive can you be?"
Funny, that was exactly my thoughts when I read your post. Real consoles do multitask to some degree. Next generation even more so. Android isn't slowing down the performance that much, particularly OpenGL. Tegra 3 never had a fast GPU, only good marketing and decent drivers.

I wasn't impressed with Ouya at all when I saw the kickstarter for it. This seems about in line with what I expected of it, mediocre hardware/performance. Project Shield looks like a much better contender for the Android-based gaming device market.
