Android* devices powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor are rising in popularity, and supporting applications are being released continuously. To meet the needs of application developers focused on creating games for Android devices with Intel Atom processors, middleware companies began supporting x86.
One such company, CRI Middleware Co., Ltd., offers runtime library x86 support for Android middleware. It has done this by changing the build settings of the makefile in the Android NDK and replacing the ARM* NEON* instructions. Included in x86 support of the middleware runtime library for Android devices is a plug-in for Unity*, a game engine developed by Unity Technologies, which allows developers to build games by simply setting the x86 folder as the build target with the Android NDK.
