Intel Corp’s latest chip for laptops developed in Israel; Latest achievement follows Intel’s $10 billion investment in its Israel chip factories.
Intel Corp’s Haifa team created the world’s latest and most advanced laptop chip, the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile H-series processors. The chip, designed for gamers and creators, was announced on Tuesday.
The chip was both designed and produced by Intel’s Haifa development center and offers desktop-caliber performance in mobile form. The company claims the new technology provides a “33% overall performance leap”, 28% increased responsiveness and continuous performance optimization. Intel’s Manager of Premium and Gaming Laptop Segments stated on the latest technology, “Our new 9th Gen platform is designed to delight gamers, creators and performance users by giving them more of what they want. We are bringing desktop-caliber performance with up to 5 Ghz and 8 cores in a range of thinner systems and new level of connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) so users can game or create where they want.”
In January of this year, Intel announced it would invest over $10 billion in its factories in Israel. Intel invested to expand its fabrication operations in Kiryat Gat, which will include an additional factory in Israel’s south. The expansion will bring over 1,000 jobs to Israelis.
In March of 2017, Intel bought Israel’s autonomous vehicle technology company, Mobileye. The major deal, worth over $15 billion, was Israel’s largest acquisition of Israeli technology by foreign investors. Intel also moved its automotive driving division to Israel last year to be managed by Mobileye’s CTO and co-founder, Amnon Shashua.
