Intel is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer chips. Although it has been challenged in recent years by newcomers, Intel still dominates the market for PC microprocessors. Nearly all PCs are based on Intel’s x86 architecture. Strategically, it is closely allied with Microsoft because the Windows 3.x and 95 operating systems are designed for x86 microprocessors. The popularity of Windows creates a demand for Intel or Intel-compatible microprocessors.
