In a bid to popularize mobile Internet devices (MID) with moderate performance for advanced video games among those who use handheld devices to play, Intel Corp. teamed up with StreamMyGame company, which software allows to play one’s PC video games on other devices by streaming them over the Internet.

During the speech given by Intel executive vice president Sean Maloney at Computex Taipei 2008, Intel demonstrated how a powerful Intel processor-based desktop PC hosting an intense 3D game could be streamed and played remotely on a mobile device connected to the Internet wirelessly without compromising the game-play experience. The demonstration was made possible by the combination of powerful microprocessors and a fast WiMAX wireless broadband network.

Technologies from StreamMyGame enable members of its web-site to play games and use applications when they are away from their PC. The PC game’s video and audio is captured in real-time and sent over the Internet to a remote device, which may be another PC, Sony PlayStation 3, ultra-mobile PC or even a handheld. The keyboard input at the remote device is sent back to the PC and used to control the game.

“We are entering a new mobile age where everything from video, audio, software applications and games can be accessed and played on the move. Our members can play games installed on their home PCs whenever and wherever they choose,” said Richard Faria chief executive officer of StreamMyGame.
