Description

The Pentium microprocesor enabled another dramatic leap in computing speed. With 3.1 million transistors, it was the most complex microprocesor of its time, performing 90 million operations per second, and allowing computers to incorporate 'real' data - like speech, sound, handwriting and photographic images - more easily. Its rapid adoption by all sectors of the industry made Pentium a household name.
