Stages of a Long Way: Mass Intel and AMD Processors in 2001

Intel
Celeron is finally moving to the 100 MHz system bus. On January 3, the first CPU of this lineup came out – the 800-MHz version (multiplication factor – 8x). In May, we should wait for the second – Celeron 850, and in August for the third – Celeron 900. In September-October, Intel intends to take the 1 GHz line for cheap processors and hopes to start mass production of the Celeron model with a frequency of 1 GHz (multiplication factor – 10x) .

Transistor Evolution and Processor Revolution

The microprocessor manufacturing process is inextricably linked with the evolution and continuous improvement of the transistor. The transistor, invented in 1948 in the laboratories of Bell Corporation, made it possible to create a computer from small-sized electronic circuits created on printed circuit boards. The revolutionary role of the transistor is in its small size. Continue reading
