A Brief History of CPUs: 31 Awesome Years of x86 | Maximum PC

Fun article for a bit of Tuesday morning nostalgia.  My personal favorite quote in the whole article:

In the beginning, Intel created the 8086 and its first 16-bit microprocessor.
And Intel said, Let there be x86: and there was x86.
And Intel saw the x86, that it was good.

Its amazing to think that in only 31 years we have come so far as a technologically advanced species.  Just stop to think for a minute, 30 years ago, not a single person in the world could even begin to imagine the depth and breadth of information we have at our fingertips, real-time communication without boundaries or borders.

Always amazes me to some extent.  Anyway, here’s the original article if anyone’s interested.
