The architecture and instruction set of this new 16-bit microprocessor were designed to meet the requirements of a broad spectrum of new microprocessor applications. 

Intel Microprocessors–8008 to 8086

TLDR
A mere six years of microprocessor evolution have yielded a three-orders-of-magnitude performance improvement, according to researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The VLSI Control Structure of a CMOS Microcomputer

By implementing novel microprogram control structures in CMOS, the designers of the 8-bit HD-6301 achieved high performance and low power consumption.

MP 80: A Microprogrammed CPU with a Microcoded Operating System Kernel

How can the performance of ystems containing obsolete technology be improved? Emulation and microprogramming provide cost-effective answers for real-time applications in a process control environment.

Special Feature the Intel 8089: An Integrated I/O Processor

As most mainframe manufacturers have demonstrated, the logical solution to I/O control problems is to deploy intelligent I/O subsystems. Intel's 8089 brings this capability to microcomputer systems.

A VLSI Architecture for Software Structure: The Intel 8086

By supporting modular programs and high-level languages, this microprocessor architecture aids the implementation of complex software.
