Introduction to Personal Computers

Intel co-founder Gordon Moore made a powerful prediction in 1965. The Intel corporation has been making that prediction a reality for nearly 40 years with unparalleled silicon expertise and world-class manufacturing. "We've enhanced billions of lives, and will continue to do so in the future" says Intel.

Gordon Moore saw the future. His prediction, popularly known as Moore's Law, states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles about every two years. This observation about silicon integration, made a reality by Intel, has fueled the worldwide technology revolution.

The world-leading silicon technologies have supported the development and worldwide adoption of industry-standard architectures and platforms, making Intel the world's largest silicon supplier. The best is yet to come. R&D investment and silicon expertise support unique Intel breakthroughs that will drive Moore's Law well into the future and deliver more exciting capabilities into technologies.

Intel's silicon expertise gives an edge on the competition in developing leading architectures and platforms that will continue fueling economic growth and improving the lives of billions of people throughout the world.
