Build a business case: developing custom apps

Intel's major rival Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has claimed that the paucity of games developers at last week's Intel Developer Forum is because Katmai samples are not available and will be expensive. At last week's developer forum, Intel admitted there were very few games developers present. AMD North European director, Richard Baker, said: "I suspect they [the games developers] are working so hard on the 3Dnow! Platform that they did not have the time to go." Baker, however, admitted that Katmai was intended as a games platform. "It will be a games part but their roadmap did not fit in with consumers' need in the market," he claimed. "It's going to be a $600 part and that's probably too expensive for the games market," he said. "They should have put MMX2 onto the Celeron part. They can't have both Celeron and PII in the same space." ®
