The Intel Pentium - A New Beginning
About this Artwork
This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the Intel Pentium. The Intel Pentium was introduced in 1993 with over three million transistors. The Pentium represented new directions for Intel. The Pentium was the first microprocessor with a trademarked name, implicitly acknowledging Intel's competition. The fifth generation of the x86 architecture, the Pentium would have been the 80586. With the addition of a second pipeline, the Pentium became Intel's first superscalar design. Also, it doubled the cache, added branch prediction, added new MMX instructions, and added internal data paths of 128 & 256 bits. These mainframe-like features began a transformation of PCs into workstations and servers that mainframe-centric IT departments were having increasing difficulty ignoring.
