The leading manufacturer of central processing chips for PC systems, Intel has had processors in some of the earliest computers that incorporated Microsoft-based operating systems. Its introduction of the Pentium processor line set innovative benchmarks for unprecedented levels of performance. Intel also makes motherboards, network processors and a host of other processing circuits that help pave the future of personal computing. Intel`s new Pentium 4 processor is designed for greater visual and multimedia performance at unprecedented speeds. Intel also offers an extensive line of networking products for home and office and Cyber Cameras, among an entire line of system support and solutions
