Founded on a Dream

Centaur Technology was founded in 1995 by four engineers working out of a kitchen. They had one mission: to develop high performance, low cost, energy efficient x86 compatible microprocessors. In 1997, Centaur launched its first processor—the IDT C6—setting the foundation for Centaur’s success: A unique design developed from scratch and a unique engineering management approach designed to achieve high performance.

Today, Centaur produces 26 major x86 microprocessor designs, shipping internationally in systems offered by Samsung, Lenovo, HP, Dell and many others.
