40 Years of Intel® Microprocessor Innovation
A History of Innovation
From day one, Intel has been a leader in technology innovation. See some of our biggest accomplishments and newsworthy moments that make up our corporate timeline.
Following Moore's Law the Whole Way
Intel co-founder Gordon Moore once made a famous prediction that transistor count for computer chips would double every two years.
Just think: What if the world had followed this golden rule the last 40 years?
The world’s first microprocessor–the Intel® 4004–was “born” in 1971, 10 years before the PC came along. The current Intel® Core™ processor has 43,000,000 percent more transistors than the 4004 processor.
Investing Today to Make a Better Tomorrow
Mark Henninger, director of Investor Relations, Discusses Intel’s billion dollar global investment in research and development and the state-of-the-art manufacturing plants that bring these technologies to market.
Federico Faggin, the designer of the Intel 4004, the world's first microprocessor, visits the Intel Museum and talks about what inspired him to create "something that was never done before" in 1971, the impact of the microprocessor over the last 40 years, and what's next.
