Intel had the foresight to understand that integrating basic graphics acceleration would allow them to position cheaper, more competitive platforms into the business and education markets. The graphics in all of Intel’s integrated core products are descended from C&T (Chips & Technologies) which Intel purchased and merged. C&T was an old graphics chip company back in the day whose comtemporaries included Western Digital (YES, the HDD vendor Western Digital), Tseng Labs, Cirrus Logic and S3. However, hindsight has also shown that Intel did not take the concept far enough. While business and education markets made up a significant portion of Intel’s revenues, it was the consumer side of the business that provided much of the company’s profits.
