what is a microprocessor
What is a microprocessor?
  • A microprocessor is an integrated circuit built on a tiny piece of silicon. It contains thousands, or even millions, of transistors, which are interconnected via superfine traces of aluminum. The transistors work together to store and manipulate data so that the microprocessor can perform a wide variety of useful functions. The particular functions a microprocessor performs are dictated by software.

cyrix
CYRIX
  • The 6x86 is what brought Cyrix into the market as a major competitor against Intel .
  • It is one of the best chips to get for integer performance in real world applications .
  • Furthermore, it achieves this at a lower clock speed than a comparable Pentium chip.

idt processors
IDT Processors
  • The WinChip C6 was IDT's first product in x86 market.
  • Their whole focus is on low cost and an easy upgrade path.
  • The processors are ideal for the desktop and the notebook markets
motorola
Motorola
  • Motorola launched the 6800 processor
  • The design of the 6800 was inspired by the 8008 and the minicomputer philosophy .
  • A typical instruction is executed in two microseconds on a 6800 microprocessor.
