What is Intel

One of the most important components on a computer is the processor. We can find two great processor designers on the market, such as Intel and AMD.

Here we will explain everything about Intel, one of the most important companies in the IT sector.

What is Intel

It is a company of American origin founded by Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore and Andy Grove. Its name comes from the abbreviation of Intgratified Elelectronics Corporation (Intel).

Intel is the company that invented and developed the x86 architecture. This architecture is currently used for desktop and laptop computer processors. The company also dominates the market for processors for servers and data centers.

Over the years the company has been expanding to other segments. They have developed chips for 5G networks, although this division was sold a few months ago to Apple. They have also been introduced in the market of NAND Flash memories, although they have sold most of this division to SK Hynix.

The company a few years ago acquired the Mobileye company in its attempt to enter the market of autonomous vehicles. Just over a year ago they acquired the Israeli company Habana Labs to enter the segment of the Artificial Intelligence.

In 2019, Intel signed Raja Koduri, who was the head of AMD's graphics card division such as the RX Vega. Since then, Koduri is working on his dedicated graphics cards which began to be marketed in 2021 under the name Intel Arc.

Origin of Intel

They are in full 10nm development, but many problems are being encountered to make the leap to this lithography. Although the division that generates the most revenue is domestic desktop processors, it also has special processors for servers, for laptops, for embedded equipment, for the Internet of Things and for special solutions for Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning.

They are not the only segments in which the company operates, since they work on solutions that allow them to offer a greater range of products. They recently entered the consumer graphics card sector, known as Intel Arc
