Intel and Unity Collaborate to Extend Android Support across Intel-based Devices
SANTA CLARA, Calif. & SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--
Intel (News - Alert) Corporation and Unity Technologies today announced a strategic
collaboration to advance the development of Android*-based applications
on Intel® architecture. The agreement accelerates Intel's mobility push
as millions of developers using the Unity development platform can now
bring native Android (News - Alert) games and other apps to Intel-based mobile devices.
Unity adds support for Android across all of Intel's current and future
processors including both the Intel® Core™ and Intel® Atom™ processor
Unity will ensure Intel product enhancements, including both graphics
and CPU performance improvements and features, will be seamlessly
integrated into future releases of the Unity 4 and Unity 5 product
lines. As Intel architecture continues to gain market segment share on
mobile devices, these improvements will help ensure that the Unity
developers' games run natively as well as look great and perform
beautifully on Intel platforms.
In addition, developers using Unity can now easily add support for Intel
architecture in their applications or produce native applications for
Intel architecture only with minimal extra effort.
"We've set a goal to ship 40 million Intel-based tablets this year and
expect more than 100 Android tablet designs on Intel in the market by
the end of this year," said Doug Fisher, Intel corporate vice president
and general manager of the Software and Services Group. "Our
collaboration with Unity will give its nearly 3 million developers the
necessary software tools and support to build amazing Android
experiences on Intel architecture."
"Unity is used by half of all mobile game developers, and many of them
have been asking for increased support for Intel-based devices running
Android," said David Helgason, CEO, Unity Technologies. "We are proud to
be working with Intel to ensure that Unity�provides the smoothest and
highest performing experience possible on Intel platforms."
"As a mobile gaming company, Kabam relies on the Unity game engine and
the compelling performance and fficiency it provides us to publish our
mobile games for players around the world," said Kent Wakeford, COO of
Kabam. "We are very excited to bring Unity-authored content, such as our
upcoming title, 'Marvel Contest of Champions,' to the rapidly growing
installed base of Intel-powered Android devices."
