Intel, the biggest chip maker that started a new era of revolution in computing, has now decided to enter the field of gaming. Intel has introduced the technology of cloud gaming. Cloud gaming is a technique to play a game online without installing it on your device. As a result it saves space on your device whether it is a computer or a mobile phone.
The technique of ray tracing in cloud computing will enable rendering of real life-like visuals with 3D effects in games on portable mobile devices such as tablet computers and smartphones. This method involves generation of visuals by tracing the path of light rays. With this, the users will be able to enjoy 3D games on their devices. Cloud gaming with ray tracing will lead to increased of uses of resources such as servers and processors, so multiple CPUs and servers will have to be installed by companies. To enable ray tracing in cloud computing services, Intel is working on chips named as Knights Ferry. These will help in resource intensive computing and rendering high quality graphics. There are several mobile phones these days specially launched to offer a good gaming experience, such as LG Optimus 2X.
