At the recent Game Developer’s Conference in March, MaxPlay unveiled MaxCore™ the industry’s first scalable, n-core data parallel computing architecture and advanced Forward+ (Light Indexed Deferred) rendering system as additions to its cloud-based Game Development Suite. These new future-focused high-powered multi-core technologies will help developers get the most of today and tomorrow’s multi-core gaming and VR/AR hardware. When combined with MaxPlay’s unique cloud development tools, processes and SaaS platform the offering is unlike any development solution in the market.
