Exciting facts about Intel Company

Intel history Intel is one of the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip makers in July of 1968 Intel was founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore in Santa Clara California Intel was one of the first developers of SRAM and DRAM memory chips which was the basis of their business until 1981 Intel was ahead of its time by creating the first commercial microprocessor chip in 1971 but it wasn't until the personal computer became successful that this became the primary portion of its business Intel greatly supported the rapid growth of the computer industry in the 1990s by investing heavily in new microprocessor designs and Intel became the dominant leader in supplying microprocessors for PCs as of 2016 Dell accounts for 15% of its total revenues Lenovo 13% and HP 10% Intel has consistently been one of the most innovative and successful semiconductor companies in the world throughout its 50-year history we were inspired by Intel's dominant success innovative spirit forward-thinking nature and ability to evolve so let's take a closer look at this tech giant with the intel history.

1. Intel was originally called more noise
 

Intel was originally called more noise at the beginning Intel was called more noise after the names of the founders but they quickly realized that this sounded more like more noise so it was changed to nm electronics just a year later the company finally decided on the final name of Intel.

2. Founder Robert Noyce was the co-inventor of the microchip

Founder Robert Noyce was the co-inventor of the microchip an integrated circuit otherwise known as the microchip is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece of semiconductor material typically silicon Intel co-founder Robert Noyce the credit with Jack Kilby for inventing the integrated circuit noise was the first to use silicon in an integrated circuit design this ultimately gave Silicon Valley its name and the noise was given the nickname of the mayor of Silicon Valley.

3. They bought the intel name for $15,000

They bought the Intel name for $15,000 Intel was chosen as the company's name for a shorter form of integrated electronics however once the founders decided on this name they found out there was already a hotel chain bearing that name in the United States Midwest the founders were able to negotiate with the hotel to sell them the full rights to the name for just fifteen thousand dollars.

4. Intel's first year's revenue was $2,672

Intel's first year's revenue was two thousand six hundred and seventy-two dollars as mentioned Intel was founded in 1968 and in that first year the company's profit was only two thousand six hundred and seventy-two Intel forecasts that revenue in 2017 will come to sixty-two billion dollars and their current total assets equal one hundred and thirteen point three billion dollars.

5. A 130x time scale replica of the 4004 CPU is on display at the intel museum

A 130 times scale replica of the four thousand for CPU is on display at the Intel Museum and tile started putting together a museum to preserve the history and products of the company in the early 1980s in 1992 the Intel museum was open to the public at Intel's headquarters in Santa Clara California with free admission in 1999 the museum was expanded to ten thousand square feet a fully functional 130 times scale replica of the Intel 4004 CPU Intel's first microprocessor was put on display at the Museum in 2006 and remains an integral part of the museum about 80,000 people visit the museum each year.

6. Intel typically spends more than $3 billion on R&D every quarter
  

Intel typically spends more than three billion dollars on R&D every quarter Intel spends a significant portion of their yearly revenue on research and development much more than many other semiconductor companies Intel spent more than three billion dollars on R&D in each of the last two quarters of 2016 and the first three quarters of 2017 specifically in the third quarter of 2017 Intel spent 3.2 billion dollars on research development while its competitor Qualcomm spent 1.4 billion and Advanced Micro Devices spent four hundred and forty-seven million dollars in the same period.

7. Intel is ranked the 14th most valuable brand

In Telus ranked the 14th most valuable brand as of 2017 ranked 14th on the Forbes list of the world's most valuable brands their brand revenue in 2016 was fifty-nine point four billion dollars the value of the brand itself is listed at thirty-one point four billion up 13% from the previous year this puts it on the list right between two other technology companies IBM and Cisco.

8. The cleanroom air is the thousands of times cleaner than a typical hospital operating room
 

The cleanroom air is the thousands of times cleaner than a typical hospital operating room anyone misses knowledge of hospitals knows how important it is for an operating room to be super clean and sterilized but the air in the so-called clean room where chips are fabricated at Intel is thousands of times cleaner than the air in a typical hospital operating room the air in the cleanroom is so pure it holds no particles above 0.5 microns to put this into perspective one strand of hair is 100 microns thick.


9. Intel plans to sponsor the Olympics through 2024

Intel plans to sponsor the Olympics through 2024 Intel has announced it will be partnering with the International Olympic Committee as a sponsor of the Olympics bringing their technology such as virtual reality 360-degree video artificial intelligence and drones to enhance the games Intel plans on continuing to be a sponsor at least through to the 2024 Olympics they've expressed an interest in getting more involved in sporting events and have been working on harnessing virtual reality and other technology to heighten the fan experience during baseball basketball and football games in 2018 Intel will provide real-time virtual reality viewing for the Winter Olympic Games.
 


10. Samsung past Intel for the first time as the top semiconductor manufacturer in 2017

Samsung past Intel for the first time as the top semiconductor manufacturer in 2017 in 2016 worldwide semiconductor revenue increased 2.6 percent with a total of 340 3.5 billion dollars that same year Intel held the number one spot as the largest semiconductor manufacturer with a 15 point 7 market share Samsung came in second with an eleven point seven percent market share Intel has held the number one spot in market share for semiconductor manufacturing since 1991 for 26 years but they were dethroned for the first time in July 2017 when Samsung posted higher quarterly semiconductor sales numbers than Intel Samsung also announced in 2017 that it would spend 18 billion dollars to expand its South Korean semiconductor manufacturing facilities.

So, guys, I meet you with my next blog and you have any suggestions for me tell on the comment section.


Thank you very much for giving me your important time 
GOODBYE.
