Universal version of SketchpadT offers peak performance on Intel- and
PowerPC-based Macs

Tuesday, October 31, 2006 – Emeryville, CA- The best software for
learning and teaching mathematics just got better!

The Geometer’s Sketchpad is now a Universal Binary
application-designed to run on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Mac
computers. When installed, it will automatically run at peak
performance for your Mac’s architecture.

“Making Sketchpad a Universal Binary opens up the full power of the
Intel architecture to our Macintosh users,” Sketchpad developer
Nicholas Jackiw said. “Students and educators can now interact
dynamically with complicated fractals and full-color surface plots in
real time, thanks to Universalization and to Sketchpad’s
high-performance numerics implementation.”
