In 2016, there was a patent from Intel to make more energy efficient Bitcoin ASICs.

Now in 2022, there are more solid evidence for them possibly making such an ASIC.

ISSCC 2022:
Bonanza Mine: An Ultra-Low-Voltage Energy-Efficient Bitcoin Mining ASIC
You can also find legal contracts for Intel to manufacture BMZ and BMZ2 ASICs for another company. BMZ stands for Bonanza Mine, backing up the naming they will use for the ISSCC 2022 presentation.

Now one of the main and leading manufacturer for Bitcoin mining ASIC is Bitmain. The space is about getting the most efficient and fastest miner quickly as possible, before the difficulty increases to a point that is no longer profitable. Truly an arms race.
