Intel, Inc. (NYSE:INTC) is the world's leading semiconductor producer and has been the industry leader since the inception of the personal computer. Intel produces products for many facets of advanced technology including flash memory products, motherboards, wired and wireless connectivity products and networked storage products.
Since the 1980s Intel has seen growing competition from a number of companies but none more significant than Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). Intel has been in the industry longer than AMD and, with around 70%+ market share, maintains a significant lead over its smaller rival. Intel's higher net income allows it to outspend AMD on R&D. Such high R&D funding has allowed Intel to maintain its leadership position in the semiconductor industry.
