Letter to our
Our two key tasks: help make the
connected PC the most exciting and
useful tool in history, and keep delivering the high-performance processors that make it possible. We made enormous strides on both fronts in 1996.
Microprocessors, also called central processing units
(CPUs) or chips, are frequently described as the “brains” of a computer, because they control the central processing of data in personal computers (PCs) and other computers. Chipsets perform essential logic functions surrounding the CPU in computers based on Intel architecture processors. Motherboards combine Intel microprocessors and chipsets to form the basic subsystem of a PC or server.
Networking and communications products enhance the capabilities of PC systems and networks, and make them easier to use and manage.These products are sold through reseller, retail and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) channels.
Computer enhancement products. Flash memory provides easily reprogrammable memory for computers, mobile phones and many other products. Flash memory has the advantage of retaining data when the unit’s power is turned off. Embedded control chips are designed to perform speciﬁc functions in products such as automobile engine and braking systems, hard disk drives, laser printers, input/output control modules, cellular phones and home appliances.
