"intel inside" only needs A SINGLE WORD to be translated.

"Leap ahead" requires two words, a phrase, to be translated.

In Chinese, at least, it doesn't parse without a verb thrown in, and it obviously loses the assonance. And idiomatically, "leap ahead" works much, much better than "An Intel is inside" (c.f. "Great Leap Forward" vs., I really don't know, "The car is in the garage").
