For decades, the technology developed by Intel Corporation has enabled the computer and Internet revolution that is changing the world. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first microprocessor in 1971. Today, Intel supplies the computing and communications industries with chips, boards, systems, and software building blocks that are the "ingredients" of computers, servers, and networking and communications products.
Emulex and Intel are constantly working together on a number of technology and product initiatives including IA64, EM64T, PCI Express, and their latest generation processor technology, the Intel Xeon® processor 5500 series, with Intel Microarchitecture Nehalem. As long time partners, Intel and Emulex worked closely to ensure that the Emulex LightPulse 8Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs were thoroughly tested, interoperable, and optimized for the Intel Xeon 5500 series platforms.
