Skype and Intel Collaborate to Improve Skype Software on Specific Processors
Posted on 9-Feb-2006 11:12. | Tags Filed under: News.



Skype and Intel Corporation are working together to optimize Skype for Intel dual-core processor-based PCs and have plans to further enhance voice and video over the Internet.

The first result of the companies' joint technical efforts is the availability of free, ten-way voice conference calling for up to ten people in Skype 2.0. The new feature is available exclusively for home and business users with Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology-based laptop PCs, and desktop PCs based on Intel Pentium D processors, Pentium Extreme Edition processors, and the recently introduced Intel Viiv technology.

The two companies plan ongoing, additional feature extensions and optimization of Skype for Intel's dual-core processors to take further advantage of the high throughput and simultaneous computing capabilities of Intel's dual-core processor architecture.

Later this year, Skype will release video calling optimized for Intel dual-core technology. Beyond laptops and desktops, Intel and Skype say they share a common vision to enable Skype to function seamlessly across a wide variety of Intel-based computing platforms and network environments, including handheld computers as well as WiFi and WiMAX wireless networks.
