Intel advertised its new CPU chip for PC and laptop computers in 1993 as the Intel Pentium processor. This chip was the fifth generation (586) evolved from the original 8086 chip, developed in 1976. The results of this 30-year lineage (e.g. 186, 286, 386, 486) have allowed Intel to dominate microcomputers ever since. Although Intel had originally intended the 8800 to be its third-generation CPU, the 8086 played that role by default in 1978. Constrained to be compatible with the 8080 family, it…
