The founders' goal was the semiconductor memory market, widely predicted to replace magnetic-core memory.
Its first product, a quick entry into the small, high-speed memory market in 1969, was the 3101 Schottky TTL bipolar 64-bit static random-access memory (SRAM), which was nearly twice as fast as earlier Schottky diode implementations by Fairchild and the Electrotechnical Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan.
Intel supplies processors for computer system manufacturers such as Apple, Lenovo, HP, and Dell.
Intel also manufactures motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing.
However, increased competition from Japanese semiconductor manufacturers had, by 1983, dramatically reduced the profitability of this market.
The growing success of the IBM personal computer, based on an Intel microprocessor, was among factors that convinced Gordon Moore (CEO since 1975) to shift the company's focus to microprocessors and to change fundamental aspects of that business model.
Intel was founded in Mountain View, California in 1968 by Gordon E.
Moore (of "Moore's law" fame), a chemist, and Robert Noyce, a physicist and co-inventor of the integrated circuit.
by the early 1980s its business was dominated by dynamic random-access memory chips.

It is the world's second largest and second highest valued semiconductor chip makers based on revenue after being overtaken by Samsung, and is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers (PCs).
While the 1101 was a significant advance, its complex static cell structure made it too slow and costly for mainframe memories.
The three-transistor cell implemented in the first commercially available dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), the 1103 released in 1970, solved these issues.
