Intel Will Enter The Metaverse With Software That Will Use Competitor’s Chips

Intel is working on software that allows laptops to tap into computing power from other devices

Intel Corp plans to enter the ‘metaverse’ with software. The company is working on software that helps laptops tap into computing power from other devices.

At the RealTime Conference on metaverse technologies, Raja Koduri, head of Intel’s accelerated computing systems and graphics group, commented that Intel’s first technology push into the metaverse will be software that helps devices leverage computing power, which is unused and already exists.

For example, if a user is playing a graphics-heavy title on their laptop that would pressure the system’s chips, but if the person has an unused gaming PC, the software will be able to detect the spare power sitting idle, tap into it over the home network and make the laptop game run better.

The software by Intel is designed to solve technical challenges for users and not just to generate major revenue for Intel. Koduri informed that the software would work with chips from competitors. “The way we are architecting all the layers is that it is going to work with everybody’s hardware, as long as they are on industry-standard specifications,” Koduri said

“There’ll be a lot of open-sourcing involved with everything that we build,” he added.

The definition of “metaverse” is quite broad and refers to immersive virtual worlds that can be accessed through the internet and devices like VR headsets. The trend has generated a demand for more computing power. Other companies like NVIDIA Corp and Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. have also gained value in recent months with the investor enthusiasm about the metaverse.
