N.M. Electronics

1968

As this name was only used for a month and was later quickly changed to Intel (Integrated Electronics), no logo was used.

After 2 weeks as N.M. Electronics, it was officially launched as Intel on August 1, 1968.[1] However, it would not see its first logo until the introduction of its first-ever microprocessor, the Intel 3101, in April of 1969.

Launched:  December 24, 2005 (reveal)
January 3, 2006 (official)

On December 24, 2005, Intel unveiled a new logo for the first time, heavily based upon the original logo of the Intel Inside brand, albeit upside down. This logo, along with its associated product logos, were leaked a month prior on November 14.[2][3] This rebrand officially took effect on January 3, 2006, effectively discontinuing the original logo, alongside the original Intel Inside logo on all products that carried it in their logos.[4] Additionally, an updated version of the iconic "Intel Inside" jingle was introduced company-wide, which was first heard a year prior with the Intel Pentium D and M.

The typeface was changed to Neo Sans Intel, a modified version of Neo Sans by Monotype. The slogan "Leap ahead" was introduced with this rebrand, which would be used until May 5, 2009, when it was replaced with "Sponsors of Tomorrow" the following day.[5]

The typeface was changed in 2014, as part of a company-wide change, from Neo Sans Intel to Intel Clear, designed by Red Peak Branding and Dalton Maag.

This logo is still used on last-generation products and on Intel Itanium, as well as its Santa Clara, CA headquarters as of 2021, and appears in a few advertisements.

This logo appeared in some 2020-2021 commercial.

2020–present

Intel Clear (2020–present)
Launched:  September 2, 2020

This logo, along with its associated product logos, were first leaked on July 29, 2020, as part of the registration of the Intel Evo trademark.[6] This logo was officially introduced alongside the Tiger Lake CPUs on September 2, 2020. The logo is philosophically inspired by the previous one and the one before it. Additionally, it saw its first dramatic revamp to its jingle for the first time since 2004 and 2006, though it wasn't completely replaced until the following year.
