Six Pillars of Technology Innovation for the Next Era of Computing
Intel is innovating across six pillars of technology development to unleash the power of data for the industry and our customers.
Imagine a world with fewer limits. A world in which architects are free to pick the best type of compute for the job and deploy it anywhere, effortlessly. A world in which developers can work seamlessly across hardware types, and data flows freely without hitting bottlenecks in memory or interconnect. A world of rich, insightful data that’s there when you need it—and secure at every point.
Intel helped define the modern world of computing. Now, as we have evolved from our role as a PC-centric company to becoming a data-centric company, we measure our progress beyond advances in transistors and CPUs. With innovation across our six fundamental technology pillars, we are shaping the data-centric future. A future in which Intel powers the world—and democratizes compute power for all.
Computing applications have become increasingly varied, and different types of workloads require different types of computing architectures. Intel is uniquely positioned to deliver a diverse mix of scalar, vector, matrix, and spatial architectures deployed in CPU, GPU, accelerator, and FPGA sockets. As a result, our customers can use the most appropriate type of compute when and where it’s needed.
