Default 4004 turns 35 Today!

A bit of an interesting link the first microprocessor from Intel the 4004 they released the schematics of the unit and a bit of food for thought it had 2,300 transistors compared to the new Intel Core 2 Duo has 291 million transistors only 35 years later.

I downloaded the animated java and it was just really cool to see this in motion. All those classes in computer engineering and then seeing it animated like this. A bit old school compared to today but a nice vision into the past when that was all you needed.

Hey if it was good enough to go to the moon it was good enough for you. =)

Article was from /.
