25 Years of Intel Architecture

Discussion in 'General Electronics' started by Animesh Maurya, Jul 13, 2003.

  1. In 1978 Intel introduced 16 Bit 8086 processor that contained 29,000
    transistors and ran at 5Mhz. In comparison today's Intel Pentium 4
    processor contains 55,000,000 transistors and runs more that 600 times
    faster at 3.06Ghz. Will Intel be able to increase the processor speed
    at the same rate for the next 25 years?

    Thanks

    My crystal ball is a little cloudy right now. Will they try? Yes. Will
    they be able to? I guess we'll find out in 25 years.
