Intel announced its agreement with Unity Technologies to develop Android-based applications on Intel architecture.
The agreement allows developers using the Unity development platform to 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 will ensure Intel product enhancements, including graphics and CPU performance improvements and features.
Unity 4 and Unity 5 product lines will get Intel architecture.
Earlier, Intel has 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.
Doug Fisher, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Software and Services Group, said: “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.”
The deal is significant for Intel because Unity is used by half of all mobile game developers.
