Always

The IBM PC was introduced in 1981. A couple of years later (amid an industry wide slump in memory chips) Intel decided to drop its initial business (memory chips) and focus on CPUs for the PC market. They managed some financial deal with IBM to get the 80386 to market in 1985. Ever since then I think you can count as "always."
Always led the industry in process technology, always led in sales, marketing, etc for the PC market.

(Didn't always lead in performance until all the RISC competitors got overrun 10+ years ago)
