Intel co-founder Gordon Moore invented the microprocessor in 1965. Moore’s work built on the groundbreaking research of Japanese engineer Tadashi Tarumi, who created the TMS 1000 (Tara 10), an experimental computer using an integrated circuit with 4,000 transistors.
Intel Corporation is not generally credited with having developed most of Intel’s microprocessor technology; most notably, it does not design or manufacture processors based on its own x86 architecture nor Atom nor Xeon cores. Furthermore, other companies have been involved in developing mainstream variants of their own CPUs that Intel has made public announcements concerning. Nevertheless, many people consider Intel to be a processor manufacturer and also one of two dominant producers worldwide for personal computers and servers alongside Advanced Micro.
