Tick ​​Tock continues to evolve, Intel Pentium 20 years spent in the March 22
Intel press processor

Began in 1993, Intel released the first generation of Pentium processors, and it has accompanied many people through the 20 years.

In front, Intel Core i as the naming of high-end processors, and popular part of a Pentium-based, but you can not forget, 80486, Pentium, but synonymous with high-end processor.

Walked for 20 years, from the outset 0.8μm to Haswell 22nm, a lot of people should have witnessed the rise of this recession.


Pentium is a start to come out, then to 66MHz Pentium Pro (0.35μm to 0.5μm), Pentium II (0.35μm to 0.25μm), Pentium III (0.35μm to 0.25μm), Pentium 4 (0.18μm to 0.065 μm), the Pentium M (0.13μm to 0.09μm), Pentium D (0.09μm to 0.065 μm), Pentium Extreme Edition (and 0.09μm to 0.065μm) to Pentium Dual-Core (0.065 μm extends to 22nm).

Each generation has a different pin. From Pentium to Pentium II changes, the most astonishing, and later to the Pentium 4 period experienced Sokcet 478 and LGA 775, Intel has been in use LGA so far. As for the future, perhaps the concept of SoC will also be seen in the Desktop point in time how to see Intel arranged.

Either way, we eventually wish Intel Pentium 20-year-old, happy birthday!
