Intel has announced that it is opening a new development center in Hyderabad in the state of Telangana, India with a capacity to host about 1,500 staff. Raja Koduri, who is now leading Intel's graphics division, said that the upcoming India Development Center will help in augmenting its existing Indian sites in graphics hardware and software development efforts.

Intel will be setting up a new technology development center in the city of Hyderabad, the capital of the Indian state of Telangana. Intel India Chief Nivruti Rai met with Telangana Government officials last week to convey the decision to setup a development center in the city. The proposed center is expected to provide 1,500 jobs initially and is expected to scale up to 5,000 jobs in the next few years.

Hyderabad is already home to IT giants such as Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, Qualcomm, Oracle, etc. and Intel's new shop is expected to further boost the prospects of the city as a preferred IT destination in India. Intel, however, is not new to the Indian market and already has two sites in another IT hotspot, Bengaluru. In fact, the company has just inaugurated a 44-acre design center in Bengaluru (its second largest in the world) with 100,000 sq.ft. of lab infrastructure for research on 5G network technologies, cloud, client, graphics, AI, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.

Raja Koduri, who is now heading Intel's Core and Visual Computing Group, said that the upcoming Hyderabad development center will help the existing R&D centers in Bengaluru to "cover our Graphics and throughput computing hardware and software ambitions". 

Intel is heavily investing in 5G and GPU technologies so it is likely that a major chunk of their development would take place in its Indian sites.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
