The announcement was made in Beijing and comes on the 20th anniversary of Intel's activity in China.

The Intel Capital China Technology Fund will be used to invest in companies "that complement Intel's technology initiatives and to further build out the Internet infrastructure in China,' according to Intel. Examples given by the company of initial focus areas include cellular communications, broadband applications for consumers, and semiconductor design.

"The pace of IT innovation is accelerating," said Intel Capital President Arvind Sodhani.
