Amazing New Media & Entertainment VR Experiences Powered by Intel Xeon Processors

With great responsibility comes the need for great power, or at least powerful tools that give you a competitive and creative boost. At SIGGRAPH this week you can see many examples of what can be accomplished when creative minds are empowered with Intel technology. For example, the award-winning developers at CreateVR* used Intel hardware and software tools, including dual Intel® Xeon® processor-based Dell workstations, to create and render the 360-degree, ultra-high resolution graphics of New York in the Spider-Man VR interactive demo that can be found in Intel Booth #807 at SIGGRAPH (see insert).



Amazing new Media & Entertainment VR experiences like Spider-Man – powered by Intel® Xeon® processors

Experience Peter Parker’s webbed suit, glide in his airborne steps, fight the villain Vulture and perform death-defying feats from Spidey’s New York City apartment. Thanks to a collaboration between Sony Pictures, CreateVR, and Intel – the magic of a new Virtual Reality Experience (VRE) will immerse you and transport you into the movie – powered by Intel Xeon processors!

Experience the new “Spider-Man: Homecoming” VRE interactive demo for yourself at Siggraph 2017 in Intel Booth #807!


Every business is investing in technology that will help outperform the competition. Workstations powered by Intel Xeon processors support your content creation needs and professional workloads, and provide the foundation to take advantage of emerging workloads including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), plus content creation in resolutions up to 8K (Ultra HD). Your team needs workstations that are dependable, powerful, and fast. That’s exactly what you get with workstations based on Intel Xeon processors and accelerated with technologies like Intel® Optane™ storage, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, and Intel field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Supported by the industry’s broadest hardware and software ecosystem, and growing support in the cloud to allow workers to get their jobs done remotely and to collaborate easily with their co-workers.

Intel is committed to delivering Intel Xeon processors built for professional workloads to help you increase productivity by providing power-user performance in systems primed for future workloads and built to enable creativity everywhere.
