A Year in the Life of Intel
Intro: Founded in Mountain View, California, in 1968 by Gordon E. Moore (known for "Moore's law) and Robert Noyce, the co-inventor of the integrated circuit, its name combines the first three letters of the word, "integrated," and first two letters of the word, "electronics." Early on, it developed the SRAM and DRAM memory chips, and then the first commercially available microprocessor in 1971. We are referring, of course, to Intel, which commands about 80% of the processor market share. Always looking ahead to the future, Intel has had a very active year. And, to provide some highlights, we've put together the following "Year in the Life" presentation about the company. Among other pursuits, Intel has developed technologies to enhance the viewing experience for sporting events such as the Super Bowl, March Madness and the Olympics. It has released a number of groundbreaking research reports about cybersecurity and the cloud, among other topics. It has also invested significantly in the driverless vehicle market. And it continues to develop some of the most powerful processors in the world. Our highlights were compiled from a variety of sources, including Intel's official website and news organizations.
