Intel and Square Enix work together to improve gaming experience.

Intel Corporation and Square Enix Co., Ltd. have announced they will work together to improve online and offline gaming experiences on PCs, mobile phones and PDAs. The collaboration is intended to produce long-term benefits for gamers and other end users.

Intel and Square Enix believe PCs, mobile phones and PDAs are becoming increasingly popular game platforms. Technologies such as Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology(1), which allows Pentium 4 processor-based PCs to perform multiple complex tasks at the same time with greater responsiveness, and software tools that allow easier cross-platform development further enable this trend. Intel software technologies help PC applications run on Intel XScale technology-based handhelds or Intel Xeon-based servers. Square Enix develops some of the world's most popular and advanced games that will be designed to fully utilize Intel's processor and platform innovation.

"PC and handheld online gaming are exciting segments in the gaming community," said Bill Siu, vice-president and general manager of Intel's Desktop Platform Group. "With the right software expertise, processor technologies like Hyper-Threading Technology, Intel graphics technology and Intel XScale with Wireless MMX, we can work together to develop new ways to enjoy the gaming experience on PCs and mobile devices."

"Square Enix looks forward to working with Intel over the long-term to the benefit of both companies and end-users," said Yoichi Wada, President of Square Enix. "We know that gamers are demanding and this proposed collaboration will allow both companies to create a new type of gaming experience that capitalizes on the recent advancements in video game and platform technology. We believe we can not only meet, but exceed the needs of an increasingly more sophisticated and growing interactive gaming market."
