Where does Intel excel? According to Gabe Newell of Valve Software, it’s all about the platform: “A platform is only as good as it lets the software developers be.” We caught up with Newell at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2012 where he showed us how Intel® technologies are the driving force moving the pc gaming industry forward. These technologies are also helping game developers create cutting-edge game experiences on the compact platform of the Ultrabook™ device.
Newell shared his thoughts on new releases in 2012, including Defense of the Ancients* 2 and the 10-foot UI to Steam*. He also reflected on Intel’s tools for game creation and game analysis that Valve uses, including Intel® Compilers and Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE profiler.
