Intel was at the recent Game Developers Conference and it showed off a number of "programs, tools, utilities and games that will take advantage of the latest Intel technologies." The company unveiled the first 5th generation Core processor with integrated Iris Pro graphics. The chip is expected to be available midway through this year and will operate at 65W, with partners such as Acer hard at work on small form factor systems utilizing the new CPU. Intel has also contributed to the development of the next generation of graphics by "helping define and support new programming models like DirectX 12 and Vulkan." Intel has targeted mobile gaming by working directly with Ubisoft to optimize the Cosmos mobile engine for x86 processors.

A partnership with the Raptr gaming utility was also announced, and will bring support for Intel Graphics to the service for the first time. The Achievement Unlocked program seeks to "help game developers succeed when creating games that target Intel Graphics hardware, Intel Core processors, and Intel Atom processors." Developers in this program will have improved technical assistance and communication with Intel. Intel is also working with developers Codemasters, Flying Mollusk, and Funcom to improve the performance of their games when used with Intel hardware.
