Anywhere you go, you’ll find Intel® technology connecting people, ideas, technologies, and industries. From Ultrabook™ devices to phones and other handhelds, data centers to automobiles, Intel delivers ever-increasing functionality, performance, and energy efficiency across the world of computing.
Today, over one-third of Intel’s revenue is associated with products beyond the PC, and approximately three-fourths of sales come from outside North America. As connected devices and systems continue to proliferate and expand to new users and formats, Intel is delivering on the enormous opportunities that lie ahead.
Intel has been laying groundwork in emerging markets for decades, and as a result these markets have become a powerful growth driver across all of our business segments.
In 2012, Intel released the first products using our revolutionary 3D tri-gate transistors, a technology that Intel developed four years ahead of the competition. After 40 years of two-dimensional integrated circuits, these new transistors drive new levels of performance and power efficiency for a range of devices.
In semiconductor manufacturing, Intel’s commitment to leading edge facilities continues to drive manufacturing advances and economies of scale that offer significant advantages over competitors.
Consider a few recent facts:
The ubiquity of computing and the explosion in the number of mobile devices are creating unprecedented opportunities for new technology. More than 500 million mobile phones and tablets incorporating Intel® chips have been shipped since early 2011, and Intel continues to expand its presence in the category through new partnerships with ZTE, Motorola Mobility, and others. Meanwhile, Intel’s Ultrabook™ system concept is revolutionizing the mobile personal computer.
As the number of Internet-connected mobile devices rises, the need for infrastructure to manage, store, and interpret data grows rapidly. Intel® technology is leading this industry transformation in a number of ways:
Since early 2011, the number of mobile phones and tablets with Intel® chips has topped 500 million, generating USD 2 billion in revenue for Intel.
Intel has built a solid foundation in growing markets, resulting in nearly universal brand-awareness ratings in Brazil, Russia, India, and China.
Since Intel introduced its first microprocessor in 1971, Intel® chips have become 4,000 times faster, now consume 5,000 times less energy, and cost 50,000 times less per transistor.
Intel is committed to continued innovation and investment to drive its business and industry ecosystem across a range of priorities, including mobile and cloud computing, semiconductor technology, and emerging markets.
