HISTORY OF INTEL PROCESSOR PART 1
What is PROCESSOR? | The processor is the brain and central computer controller that is supported by other components. The processor is an IC that guards the entire path of a computer system. The processor is also used as the CORE or brain of a computer that serves to perform calculations and perform tasks.
Processors are chips that are often referred to as “Microprocessor” which at this time has reached the size of gigahertz. The size is a count of processor speed in processing data or information. Brand Processors are widely circulated in the market is AMD, Apple, Cyrix VIA, IBM, IDT, and Intel.
There are 3 most important parts of the processor. They are:
Aritcmatics Logical Unit (ALU)
Control Unit (CU)
Memory Unit (MU)
History of INTEL Development
1971: 4004 MICROPROSESOR
In 1971 came the first intel microprocessor used on the Busicom calculator engine. With this invention there is a way to enter artificial intelligence in inanimate objects.
1972: 8008 MICROPROSESOR
In 1972 appeared the microprocessor 8008 which is 2 times the double power of the microprocessor 4004.
1974: 8080 MICROPROSESOR
Being the brain of a computer called Altair and at that time has sold about 10,000 units in one month alone.
1978: 8086-8088 MICROPROSESOR
An important sale in the computer division that occurred on products for personal computers made by IBM that use 8088 processor and has upgraded the name of intel.
1982: 286 MICROPROSESOR
Intel 286 is better known as 80286 is a processor that can first recognize and use software used for previous processors.
1985: INTEL 386 MICROPROSESOR
The Intel 386 is a processor that has 275,000 transistors embedded in that processor which when compared to 4004 has 100 times more than the 4004.
1989: INTEL 486 DX CPU
The first processor to facilitate the various applications that had to sign the commands to be just a click and have a complex mathematical function so as to reduce the workload on the processor.
1993: INTEL PENTIUM PROCESSOR
New generation processors capable of handling various types of data such as sound, sound, handwriting and images.
1995: INTEL PENTIUM PRO PROCESSOR
Processors designed for use in server and workstation applications are created to process data quickly. This processor has 5.5jt embedded transistors.
1997: INTEL PENTIUM II PROCESSOR
Pentium II processors are processors that combine Intel MMX designed specifically to efficiently process video, audio and graphics data. There are 7.5 million transistors integrated in it so that with this processor PC users can process various data and use the internet better.
