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) .

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part1)

It would seem that in common between a mobile phone, a GPS navigator, a digital camera and a modern voice recorder. The first thought that comes is that these are digital devices that appeared on the market in the 90s of the last century. But this is only at first glance, if you dig deeper, then all these devices have one thing in common – they use Flash (flash) memory to store data. Flash memory, as a new storage device, has been rapidly developing since 1984. In this article, we will try to highlight the history of the creation and development of Flash memory. Continue reading
