80486 range bit processors

80486DX

  • Introduced April 10, 1989
  • Clock rates:
    • 25 MHz with 20 MIPS (16.8 SPECint92, 7.40 SPECfp92)
    • 33 MHz with 27 MIPS (22.4 SPECint92 on Micronics M4P 128 KB L2), introduced May 7, 1990
    • 50 MHz with 41 MIPS (33.4 SPECint92, 14.5 SPECfp92 on Compaq/50L 256 KB L2), introduced June 24, 1991
  • Bus Width 32 bits
  • Number of Transistors 1.2 million at 1 µm; the 50 MHz was at 0.8 µm
  • Addressable memory 4 GB
  • Virtual memory 1 TB
  • Level 1 cache of 8 KB on chip
  • Math coprocessor on chip
  • 50X performance of the 8088
  • Used in Desktop computing and servers
  • Family 4 model 3


80386SL (chronological entry)

[edit] 80486SX

  • Introduced April 22, 1991
  • Clock rates:
    • 16 MHz with 13 MIPS
    • 20 MHz with 16.5 MIPS, introduced September 16, 1991
    • 25 MHz with 20 MIPS (12 SPECint92), introduced September 16, 1991
    • 33 MHz with 27 MIPS (15.86 SPECint92), introduced September 21, 1992
  • Bus Width 32 bits
  • Number of Transistors 1.185 million at 1 µm and 900,000 at 0.8 µm
  • Addressable memory 4 GB
  • Virtual memory 1 TB
  • Identical in design to 486DX but without math coprocessor. The first version was an 80486DX with disabled mathco in the chip and different pin configuration. If the user needed math co capabilities, he must add 487SX which was actually an 486DX with different pin configuration to prevent the user from installing a 486DX instead of 487SX, so with this configuration 486SX+487SX you had 2 identical CPU's with only 1 turned on
  • Used in low-cost entry to 486 CPU desktop computing
  • Upgradable with the Intel OverDrive processor
  • Family 4 model 2

[edit] 80486DX2

  • Introduced March 3, 1992

Runs at twice the speed of the external bus (FSB).

  • Clock rates:
    • 40 MHz
    • 50 MHz
    • 66 MHz
    • 100 MHz (This was only made a short time due to high failure rates.)

[edit] 80486SL

  • Introduced November 9, 1992
  • Clock rates:
    • 20 MHz with 15.4MIPS
    • 25 MHz with 19 MIPS
    • 33 MHz with 25 MIPS
  • Bus Width 32 bits
