Tech company Intel has opened the race to take control of the 5G market, but their focus is less on installing 5G-capable data chips into the newest smartphones, and more on building the right infrastructure to host 5G.

The US company unveiled its latest chips under the codename Snow Ridge at CES in Las Vegas. These new chips are not designed for smartphones or tablets, but instead for wireless base stations. By 2022, Intel manager Navin Shenoy predicts the company will have conquered 40% of this market.
