Intel is the global leader in processor innovation. Watch this video to get a step-by-step glimpse of how we create this technology.
Intel’s Technology Pillars
Intel helped define and build the modern world of computing. But today, our greatest advancements are centered around data. Innovating across multiple technology pillars, we are creating a world where architects can choose the best type of compute for the job and deploy it anywhere.
Where developers can work effortlessly across hardware types. And where data flows freely without hitting bottlenecks. The end result: giving our customers access to richer, more actionable data that yields greater insights and better solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions
The landscape for computing has evolved dramatically over the past decade. We operate in a world where we generate data at a faster rate than our ability to analyze, understand and help secure it. We see immense demand for computing architectures that evolve rapidly and scale exponentially. And we have a bold engineering vision over the next five years to deliver 10 petaFLOPS of compute and 10 petabytes of data within 10 milliseconds to every person in the world. We believe these six technology pillars are the key enablers for us to drive the needed product innovation to achieve this.
How do Intel’s investments in the technology pillars drive Moore’s Law-like leaps forward in user experience?
In the previous generations, the answer has been that transistor density and Moore’s Law will play the lead role to solve computing problems. But as the process node transitions have slowed from the pace of the previous decades, it is the essence of Moore’s Law that continues to provide new technologies and capabilities to meet the demands of modern computing. The message of Moore’s Law is about more than transistors alone, with the combination of transistors, architectural research, connectivity advancements, faster memory systems, and software working together to drive it forward.
How do the IP and resources in the technology pillars best position Intel to deliver differentiated products?
The sheer volume and breadth of IP available is unprecedented. The scale of these resources gives Intel a differentiated set of technologies in each of these pillars to apply as we drive wave after wave of innovation for client, edge and cloud computing environments. Intel is uniquely positioned to deliver leadership across all six of these pillars, which provides a foundation for sustained innovation nobody else can offer.
