  • Atom (system on chip)
    Atom is a system on chip (SoC) platform designed for smartphones and tablet computers, launched by Intel in 2012.
  • AMD Turion
    AMD Turion is the brand name AMD applies to its x86-64 low-power consumption (mobile) processors codenamed K8L.
  • Intel 80186
    The Intel 80186, also known as the iAPX 186, or just 186, is a microprocessor and microcontroller introduced in 1982.
  • Intel 80286
    The Intel 80286 (also marketed as the iAPX 286 and often called Intel 286) is a 16-bit microprocessor that was introduced on 1 February 1982.
  • Intel 80386
    The Intel 80386 ("eight-oh-three-eighty-six"), also known as i386 or just 386, is a 32-bit microprocessor introduced in 1985.
  • Intel 80486
    The Intel 486 ("four-eighty-six"), also known as the i486 or 80486 is a higher performance follow-up to the Intel 80386 microprocessor.
  • Opteron
    Opteron is AMD's x86 server and workstation processor line, and was the first processor which supported the AMD64 instruction set architecture (known generically as x86-64).
  • Pentium D
    The Pentium D brand refers to two series of desktop dual-core 64-bit x86-64 microprocessors with the NetBurst microarchitecture, which is the dual-core variant of Pentium 4 "Prescott" manufactured by Intel.
  • X86
    (This article is about Intel microprocessor architecture in general. For the 32-bit generation of this architecture that is also referred to as "x86", see IA-32.) x86 is a family of backward compatible instruction set architectures based on the Intel 8086 CPU and its Intel 8088 variant.
  • X86-64
    x86-64 (also known as x64, x86_64 and AMD64) is the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set.
  • Intel Atom
    Intel Atom was the brand name for a line of ultra-low-voltage IA-32 and x86-64 microprocessors by Intel Corporation.
  • Physical Address Extension
    In computing, Physical Address Extension (PAE), sometimes referred to as Page Address Extension,is a memory management feature for the IA-32 architecture.
  • Xeon Phi
    Xeon Phi is a main/co processor designed, manufactured, marketed, and sold by Intel.
  • Pentium Dual-Core
    The Pentium Dual-Core brand was used for mainstream x86-architecture microprocessors from Intel from 2006 to 2009 when it was renamed to Pentium.
  • X86 virtualization
    In computing, x86 virtualization refers to hardware virtualization for the x86 architecture.
  • Haswell (microarchitecture)
    Haswell is the codename for a processor microarchitecture developed by Intel as the "fourth-generation core" successor to the Ivy Bridge microarchitecture.
  • Intel Turbo Boost
    Intel Turbo Boost is a technology implemented by Intel in certain versions of its processors that enables the processor to run above its base operating frequency via dynamic control of the processor's clock rate.
  • Page Size Extension
    In computing, Page Size Extension (PSE) refers to a feature of x86 processors that allows for pages larger than the traditional 4 KiB size.
  • CPUID
    The CPUID opcode is a processor supplementary instruction (its name derived from CPU IDentification) for the x86 architecture allowing software to discover details of the processor.
  • P5 (microarchitecture)
    The first Pentium microprocessor was introduced by Intel on March 22, 1993.
  • A20 line
    The A20 or addressing line 20 is one of the electrical lines that make up the system bus of an x86-based computer system.
  • High memory
    High Memory is the part of physical memory in a computer which is not directly mapped by the page tables of its operating system kernel.
