From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Intel Corporation
      A US microelectronics manufacturer.  They produced
     the Intel 4004, Intel 8080, Intel 8086, Intel 80186,
     Intel 80286, Intel 80386, Intel 486 and Pentium
     microprocessor families as well as many other integrated
     circuits and personal computer networking and
     communications products.
     Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce founded Intel in 1968 to design,
     manufacture, and market semiconductor computer memory to
     replace magnetic core memory, the dominant computer memory
     at that time.  Dr. Andrew S. Grove joined Intel soon after its
     incorporation.  Three years later, in 1971, Intel introduced
     the world's first microprocessor, the Intel 4004.
     Intel has design, development, production, and administration
     facilities throughout the western US, Europe and Asia.  In
     1995 nearly 75% of the world's personal computers use Intel
     architecture.  Annual revenues are rapidly approaching $10
     billion.  In March, 1994, "Business Week" named Intel one of
     the top ten American companies in terms of profit, one of the
     top 15 market value winners, and 16th out of the magazine's
     top 1,000 companies overall.
     Intel invested a record $2.9 billion in capital and R&D in
     1993, and expects to increase combined spending on these
     activities to $3.5 billion in 1994.  Quarterly sales were
     $2770M and profits, $640M in Aug 1994.
