Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies and Hatch Entertainment have announced their collaboration on delivering next-gen cloud-based gaming experiences on servers based on the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 - the world’s first 10nm server processor.
Hatch’s online streaming delivery model, coupled with the highly scalable 48-core Qualcomm Centriq 2400, offers a disruptive new solution that delivers cloud-based games in real time and improved economics to users.
The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor is optimised for cloud workloads and designed to deliver throughput performance for highly threaded cloud native applications that are developed as micro-services and deployed for scale-out.
Hatch Entertainment’s cloud gaming technology, optimised for low latency gaming performance over mobile data networks, delivers full-featured games at 60fps over the Internet with less than half the bandwidth required for video-based game streaming solutions or streaming HD video.
For Hatch, Qualcomm Centriq 2400’s 48 core processor will provide exceptional compute density allowing for a large number of game instances per server. Hatch will offer gamers high quality, premium gaming in the cloud, while developers will be able to more easily and affordably create synchronous multiplayer games.
Moreover, users will be able to enjoy on-demand access to games via their mobile devices, freeing up space on phones and facilitating social features such as collaboration and competition with friends and family, and gameplay sharing in real time.
“The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 server processor was purpose built for cloud to deliver exceptional performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar,” said Vishal Gupta, Vice President, business development, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies. “We bring high compute density and energy efficiency with Qualcomm Centriq 2400 to help drive Hatch’s innovative cloud game streaming solution.”
“Our vision is to let people discover, play and share great games instantly and in real time, bringing people together over games they love,” said Juhani Honkala, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Hatch Entertainment.
“Our collaboration with Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies is a significant leap forward in advancing our existing gaming technology and platform, which offers users a fun and completely new kind of gaming experience on mobile.”
