Intel Outlines 2015 Gaming News And Initiatives With Key Partners At GDC

As a follow-up the press release we posted this morning, I wanted to give you guys a direct link to this blog post about the announcements made by Intel at the Game Developers Conference. In addition to giving its first 5th gen Intel Core processor with Iris Pro graphics demonstration, the company announced new programs, utilities, tools, and games for Intel owners and developers

Intel is committed to gaming. Whether it’s the hardware that games are played and developed on, the tools that enable developers or the gamers themselves, Intel is driven to deliver the best gaming experience. This week at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), we announced new programs, tools, utilities and games that will take advantage of the latest Intel technologies.

Intel recently introduced our 5th Generation Intelآ® Coreآ™ processors resulting in a wave of products built on Intel’s industry-leading 14nm process technology. In a new disclosure at GDC, Intel showed the first 5th Generation Core LGA-socketed CPU with Intelآ® Irisآ™ Pro graphics. This 65 watt unlocked desktop processor, available mid-2015, will bring new levels of performance and power efficiency to Mini PCs and desktop All-In-Ones. Since 2006 the 3D performance of Intel Graphics has increased nearly 100 fold (Intel 3DMark06 measurements) and powerful form factors from Acer, Medion and Intel’s own NUCs are becoming available with 5th Generation Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Graphics.
