This category holds links on Intel and compatible x86-based architecture central processor units: CPUs. Main members of the Intel x86 family: 8086, 8088, 80186, 80286, 80386, 80486, 80586 (Pentium), 80686 (Pentium II), 80786 (Pentium III), 80886 (Pentium 4), and more to come. Some x86 compatibles: AMD, Cyrix, Transmeta, Winchip, etc.
Global supplier of integrated circuits for personal and networked computing and communications.
Was IDT. Makes WinChip processor family, world's smallest x86 processors, shipping four different parts, and consistently has the fastest design cycle in the industry. Subsidiary of VIA Technologies.
E2K microprocessor: postRISC parallel architecture claimed 2x faster than Merced. Has optimizing compiler. High security: supports data types in hardware, checks handling at run time.
In depth report on the history of the x86 processor.
Manufacturer of x86 microprocessors. Also make chipsets, motherboards and network processors.
The eX5 server platform is the first to effectively "decouple" memory performance and capacity from the processor, enabling its memory capacity to scale up to six times other servers in its class.
Detailed performance charts of various desktop processors.
Archive of technical x86 processor information and downloadable documentation. Includes a discussion forum.
Outlines the basic structure of a processor and the architectures of recent designs from Intel, AMD and Cyrix.
Article treats integer pipeline, P6 architecture, impact of legacy x86 support. [Ars Technica]
Article treats trace cache, instruction window, P4 and Pentium-M developments, branch prediction. [Ars Technica]
Encyclopedia article about the microprocessor architecture, including history, naming scheme, design details, and software support.
Code optimizer that supports code for the IA-32 and x86-64 architectures which is used to optimize and auto-parallelize code generated by a compiler.
