Moore, with a Ph.D. in chemistry and physics, led Intel through the development of microprocessors. Under his leadership, Intel introduced its most successful inventions, the 32 and 64-bit chips, which could handle processing tasks in a multitude of appliances. This success resulted in enlarging the company’s profits, which tripled in the first quarter of 1988, making Intel one of the fastest growing companies in history.
