  Intel 80386 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Intel 80386 is a microprocessor which was used as the central processing unit (CPU) of many personal computers from 1986 until 1994 and later.
The predecessor of the 80386 was the Intel 80286, a 16-bit processor with a segment-based memory management and protection system.
Intel later introduced the 80486, but not until the introduction of EM64T in 2004 did Intel's processors introduce as important a feature as the 32-bit flat addressing made possible by the 80386.

 Intel 80386
Intel later introduced the 80486, but neither it nor its successors under the Pentium name were as big a step for Intel as the 32-bit flat addressing made possible by the 80386 (other microprocessor architectures, such as the Motorola 68000, had long since supported this form of addressing).
Most applications running on Intel-based personal computers in 2003 will run on the older 80386, albeit slowly; there were relatively few instructions added to the main instruction set in later generations, and in most cases their usage can be avoided.
Late in the 80386’s production run, Intel introduced the 80386SX, which was meant to be a low cost version of the i386.

 Olympus MIC-D: Integrated Circuit Gallery - Intel 386 Microprocessor
The 386 central processing unit (CPU) was originally fabricated at the same 1.5-micron linewidth process level as the 286, but the number of transistors was more than doubled to 275,000.
The best-selling 386 was the first processor for the personal computer that was able to switch between real and enhanced modes without rebooting.
The 80386DX is the new name given to the original 386 CPU after the release of the 80386SX, a scaled down version of the best-selling silicon chip.

Consequently, in February 1982, Intel and AMD entered into a technology exchange agreement ("the 1982 Agreement") pursuant to which AMD agreed to become a second source manufacturer of Intel's x86 microprocessors and related computer chips.
Intel immediately responded with a federal copyright action alleging that AMD did not have a license to copy Intel's microcode (the "287 Microcode Litigation").
These press releases contrasted the "Am486 with Intel microcode" with the "Am486 with the AMD microcode" when, in fact, the clean room 486 microcode was developed by engineers who had access to Intel 386 microcode.

Intel introduced the chip in 1985, but the 386 appeared in the first systems in late 1986 and early 1987.
The 386 was as efficient as the 286 in executing instructions, which means that the average instruction took about 4.5 clock cycles.
Intel originally contracted Weitek to develop a math coprocessor for the Intel 386 CPU, because Intel was behind in its own development of the 387 math coprocessor.

Intel's 386 chip is the brain of many powerful personal computers that conform to the standards established by the International Business Machines Corporation, and it is expected to contribute almost $1 billion to Intel revenues this year.
Intel, based in Santa Clara, Calif., said that the chips Advanced Micro delivered were either late or unacceptable and that therefore Intel was not obligated to give up rights to the 386.
Thomas Dunlap Jr., Intel's general counsel, acknowledged that one sentence in the opinion ''at least theoretically'' held open the possibility of a transfer of rights to the 386 but that it was unlikely.

The 386 CPU with the 32bit databus would live on as 386DX and the version with the 16bit databus as 386SX.
Intel used this strategy of making two versions of a CPU already with the 8086/8088 and the 80186/80188.
With the 386 the difference between SX and DX was the databus, but with the 486 the difference was that the SX version had no co-processor and the DX had an integrated co-processor!

Intel has devised a specific series of benchmarks that can be run against Intel chips to produce a relative gauge of performance.
Instead, Intel recommended that PC manufacturers include a dedicated upgrade (OverDrive) socket in their systems, because several risks were involved in removing the original CPU from a standard socket.
Intel has developed new compilers that will take full advantage of the chip; the company will license the technology to compiler firms so that software developers can take advantage of the superscalar (parallel processing) capability of the Pentium.
