Our advanced manufacturing technologies let us deliver leading-edge performance products at lower costs, and help put us one generation ahead of the competition.In 2002, difficult business conditions for Intel and other technology companies limited our opportunities for financial growth and we ended the year with revenue of $26.8 billion, relatively flat compared to 2001.
