Unity Extends Android Games Support Across Intel-based Devices
Published on: 28th Aug 2014
Intel and Unity Technologies have announced a 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 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 families.
Unity said that it will ensure Intel product enhancements, including both graphics and CPU performance improvements and features, will be integrated into future releases of the Unity 4 and Unity 5 product lines.
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."
