The 10 Main Products That Intel Manufactures

1. Core Processors (i3, i5, i7, i9, etc): These are the heart of most consumer desktops and laptops. Intel’s Core series offers varying levels of performance and features from cheap options to powerful chips for gaming and content creation.

2. Xeon Processors (for servers and workstations): Xeon chips are designed for the demands of enterprise servers and big business laptops like the Lenovo Thinkpads. They prioritize reliability, high core counts, large memory capacity and features for virtualization and data center efficiency. Intel still maintains about a 70% to 80% market share in the server CPU market.

3. Intel Evo Platform: This isn’t a single product, but more of a set of standards Intel sets for laptops that meet criteria for performance, long battery life, fast wake times and features like Thunderbolt connectivity. Think of it as a seal of approval for premium laptops.

4. Pentium and Celeron Processors: These are Intel’s lower tier products. They’re designed for basic computing tasks, web browsing and light productivity work and they’re found in entry level laptops and Chromebooks. Actually, as of 2023 the Celeron line was no longer even called Celeron but integrated as a generic “Intel Processor” product.

5. Intel Arc Graphics Cards: This is Intel’s entry into the dedicated GPU market. Arc cards compete with the colossus Nvidia and AMD and Intel is trying to targeting a range of performance levels that is somewhat unrepresented by AMD and Nvidia. With the recent driver updates and the price drops Intel Arc GPUs can actually run games like Fortnite and Apex Legends in 1440p with a decent frame rate. For most gamers I think the Arc GPUs are a fantastic option if you don’t want to pay $1000s for an Nvidia RTX.

6. Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU: VPUs (Vision Processing Units) are specialized chips for accelerating computer vision tasks like image recognition, object detection and video analysis in AI applications.

7. Intel Optane Memory: Optane is a form of fast storage that acts as a bridge between traditional hard drives and RAM. It helps speed up system responsiveness and load times for frequently used files and programs.

8. Intel Network Adapters: These include both wired and wireless network cards for desktop PCs, laptops and servers. They handle connecting devices to the internet and local networks.

9. Intel Agilex FPGAs: Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are chips that can be reconfigured after manufacturing. This allows them to be customized for highly specific workloads in data centers, networking, industrial applications and more.

10. Intel RealSense Depth Cameras: These specialized cameras with depth sensors are used for applications like facial recognition, 3D scanning and gesture based interfaces
