Intel Intel Quietly Acquires Graphics Software Firm

Intel takes over graphics firm Neoptica.

Intel Corp. has quietly acquired graphics software company called Neoptica. The decision once again outlines importance that graphics technologies represent for the world’s largest maker of x86 central processing units (CPUs). Unfortunately, it is unclear what will the company’s do as a part of Intel.

“Neoptica has been acquired by Intel, where we are working on a number of exciting efforts in interactive computer graphics,” a short statement from Neoptica’s web-site reads.

Previously, Neoptica developed software tools for development of advanced “interactive graphics”. Based in San Francisco, California, the company was founded by ex-Nvidia and ex-Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. employees who used to work on software development positions. Besides, some of Neoptica’s employees were involved into GPGPU (general purpose computing on graphics processing units) projects.

Presently Intel commands the largest share on the market of graphics adapters with its chipsets with built-in graphics cores. However, it is rumoured that Intel is working on high-performance discrete graphics processing units (GPUs), which is why the company is hiring additional personnel experienced in development of graphics hardware and software.

Intel has not yet released any statements regarding the Neoptica take over.
