SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Intel Corp on Monday unveiled a new line of computer chips as part of the tech giant's efforts to gain traction in the fast-growing mobile sector.

"Silvermont will be the foundation for a range of innovative products beginning to come to market later this year," Intel said in a statement.

Intel is the world's biggest maker of chips for personal computers, but is struggling to make inroads in the surging marker for small, energy-sipping processors for smartphones and tablets.
