This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin takes a closer look at microprocessor titan Intel (NAS: INTC) . The lion's share of its revenue came from its PC client group. The first thing that stands out about this company is its massive size compared to the other competitors in this space. Intel has four-fifths of the microprocessor market share, and dwarfs other manufacturers like Arm Holdings (NAS: ARMH) and AMD (NYS: AMD) . Intel also has recognized its late entrance to the mobile chip game, and is driving to create products in that space with force; and, it has the cash to succeed. Intel's annual R&D budget is bigger than AMD's market cap.
