About this Artwork

This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the Intel 80486. The Intel 486 was the first fully 32-bit x86 processor with arithmetic and logic operations on 8, 16, and 32-bit data types using a full-width ALU and eight general-purpose registers. The 486 used pipelining, which overlapped instruction fetching, decoding, address translation, and execution. Many instructions could execute in a single clock cycle. At identical clock speeds, the performance of the 486 was twice that of the 386. The Intel 486 was the first microprocessor to use over 1 million transistors. It had an 8-Kbyte write-through internal cache and an onboard  IEEE standard 754 floating-point processor.  

This artwork includes 4 major items. It has a large image of an Intel 80486 chip. On the back are the artist’s signature and a narrative describing the artwork and the 80486. The artwork includes an Intel 80486 chip. This artwork also includes a rare 486 chip die.
