In 1971, Intel invented the CPU microprocessor to equip modern computers. For a long period onward, the firm has continued to innovate and has gradually become the market leader. In 1992, it even emerged as the largest chip manufacturer in terms of revenue and maintained the title for more than two decades. However, in recent years, the company has seen a brain drain, a defeat in the mobile chip sector, increased bureaucracy and the failure of promises regarding their processor technology. Many delays in a smaller lithography of their processors were and are still to be deplored.
