SF Chronicle Examines Intel Mac Game Potential
1:53 PM | Eddie Park | 1 comment

Citing something most of us have been anticipating since their announcement, the San Francisco Chronicle has posted an article noting the increased potential of Mac gaming due to the recent introduction of Intel Core Duo processors. The speed boost provided by the new processors should serve Macs better when it comes to playing games, which is important considering the fact that games are becoming increasingly relevant in the realm of digital entertainment.

The performance improvement from Intel chips gives Apple the ability to better compete with other computer manufacturers in attracting hard-core gamers who are tech-savvy. While there are still significant hurdles to overcome, this could be an important step for Apple, because video games are increasingly becoming a vital part of digital entertainment in the home, analysts say.
The article further adds that gaming is probably the one weak link in Apple's current digital life strategy, and needs to be shored up if Apple intends on becoming a "major player in the race to the consumers' living room."
