The Pentium family includes several different microprocessor models, each of which is designed for use in a different type of computer. The first Pentium microprocessor was released in 1993. It was followed by the Pentium Pro in 1995, the Pentium II in 1997, … Read more


Itanium is a family of 64-bit Intel microprocessors that implement the Intel Itanium architecture (formerly called IA-64). Intel marketed the processors for use in enterprise servers and high-performance computing (HPC) systems. The Itanium architecture originated at Hewlett-Packard (HP), and was later jointly developed by HP and Intel. Itanium-based systems have been produced by HP, SGI, … Read more

Intel 8086

The Intel 8086 is a 16-bit microprocessor that was released by Intel in 1978. It was the first microprocessor in the x86 family, and is considered to be the first 16-bit microprocessor. The 8086 was designed to be a more powerful successor to the 8-bit 8080 microprocessor. The 8086 has a 16-bit address bus, which … Read more

Socket 7

A socket 7 is a physical and electrical specification for a CPU socket. It was the successor to socket 5 and was itself succeeded by socket 8. CPUs which use the socket 7 specification include the Intel Pentium, AMD K6, Cyrix 6×86 and 6x86MX. Is LGA 1151 the same as LGA 1200? LGA 1151 and … Read more

EPIC (Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing)

EPIC is a type of microprocessor architecture that is designed to efficiently execute instructions that can be executed in parallel. This type of architecture is typically used in high-performance computing applications where performance is critical. EPIC processors typically have a large number of processing units that can work together to execute instructions in parallel. What … Read more


Overclocking is the process of configuring a piece of hardware to run at a higher speed than its default setting. This is usually done by increasing the clock rate, which tells the hardware how fast to operate. Overclocking can be used to improve the performance of a computer, or to allow a piece of hardware … Read more

Logic level

Logic level refers to the voltage level of a signal that is used to represent digital data. A logic level can be either high or low, with high typically being represented by a voltage level of 3.3 volts or 5 volts, and low being represented by 0 volts. What is levels of logic in VLSI? … Read more
